I freelance as a photographer and writer, and have had most of my income through producing travel articles with both text and photography.

I agree with the above posts, that no-one is an intermediate photographer. Your title has nothing to do with it. What you do, where you go - but most importantly, what you bring back with you defines if you ever are going to make a living from your work.

Magazines these days have hundreds of stories every day to choose from - stories from pros as well as amateurs. But the one criteria they choose from, is wheter they need the story or not. And if you've got the story that will fit great into their in-production issue, they'll take it. Wheter you are Serious Sam or Average Joe.

And about cameras - this doesn't matter either. I've recently got pictures published from my analogue old SLR, as well as from my 6MP Fuji compact-camera - even though I had other pictures from my top-of-the-line DSLR too. But technology aside, my good pictures came out of the other cameras. And the article text came from the notes in my notebook. And, luckily, and editor was interested - and bought my story. That's the way things go down.

Don't buy a new camera - buy a notebook. Not a computer, a regular one, which you write with a pencil in. And then spend the rest of your money on your travelling. And no that you can never, never - give up.
