ok so we all share our travel addictions and the eternal struggle seems to be our never-ending quest for money to feed our love of travel. I was wondering what innovative things people have done to raise money for their travels. I have the job and will save enough for my next trip away but obviously it would be nice to have a bit of extra cash. Any advice on what has worked for you or how you have done it would be much appreciated. Or even ideas which you have not tried...

cheers,
Alex

Eum... Garage sale... Selling things on Ebay... It's what I could think of now.

There was one guy I met who made all his money out of touring small hamlets and showing pictures of where he had been besides his main job. He gave lectures on the culture and the politics of the countries for a small fee. Said that was the way he made money for travelling.

hehehe..... I moved out of my house and went living with my grandparents again! No rent for me to pay anymore Okay, sounds pretty desperate and radical but, I'm planning to go for about a year to Africa...So I needed to find a solution for the house, the stocking of my furniture and personal belongings etc, ànd a way to save much more money......And it works!
