outoforbit has indicated that this thread is about Denmark

Hello fellow travelers of the world,

A friend told me I can get answers here for my desperate needs! I'm a traveler trying to go around the world. I ran out of money and I'm stuck in Copenhagen/KĂžbenhavn. Looking desperately for ANY "illegal" job. If anybody here can give me hints, tips, or ideas for my survival in Denmark I would appreciate it immensely!

If any body can offer me a job that would be even better! :)

I am 25 year old painter, have some computer design skills, have an excellent command of English and Spanish (writing and speaking), love dogs and children. I am open to any kind of work - I have no option but to accept whatever I am offered.

Take care people of the world, may the winds blow favorably in you sails!

Paul

I have got a few of my people in Copenhagen. There needs to be sold 5 kg of cocaine in the trance scene of that city within 10 days....

You may also clean my grandsma's windows for a few bucks

Thanks my friend! Whether you are joking or not, I think I want to stay out of the police's blacklist. But cleaning windows sounds like a fun job and and wouldn't mind being paid with some yummy chocolate cookies! ;)

Here in the Netherlands you could get a chance in the agricultural sector. Many illegal Polish are working here as well. I might suspect that in denmark this could be the case as well. How long do you need to work?

Cheers,
Wouter

I just need to work to save up enough to be on the move again. Perhaps I was thinking of working till summer this year and then move on. The agriculture seems to be a fine idea, I just wonder how I can approach these people. Should I go to farms or markets to find a job of these?

Yeah I think that's the best thing. Just hire a bicycle to visit a few farms near Copenhagen. Probably they also know if another farmer needs someone. Good luck, mate.

How long and where are you travelling, it seems pretty adventurous. Are you Cost Rican?

Yes I am Costa Rican and left home on Oct. 2005. I've traveled through Central America, Mexico and the US; and then flew over to Europe and made my way around. I plan to go to Asia next and then Australia/New Zealand. Hopefully I will one day return home from the other end, working my way up through South America.

It all really depends on the flow of cash as I go through each area.

Thanks for all the help mate!

What was your startbudget? Luckily Asia is very cheap. 1 month working in Europe and you saved enough for 2 or 3 months in Asia. Impressive trip you are doing, not for everyone. Well done, respect. Hope to see you more often on the forums. Your experience is a goldmine for green travellers...

I started with 14k US. Good enough for a year but you can make it last longer if you don't party as much as I did!

But actually you did not bad at all. You have travelled till now for 1 year and 4 months. And this is the first time you had to work something extra?
