Was just wondering, surely not everyone here is travelling at the same time, what do you guys do to bring in the money?

Unfortunately I'm like most people (I suspect) and work a standard job. I travel when I can but it is pretty infrequent these days.

There's the mortgage, and the kids.....

I help run this website and do some freelance video editing / web design as well. Pretty flexible schedule thankfully.

I teach English as a foreign language in China. I tend to use whichever country I'm in as a base to travel to neighbouring countries.

I spent a few years working in London and used to do a weekly Brussels work trip.

Now I live and work in the suburbs of Sydney.

Quite interseting, no astronaughts or brain surgeons though....

so as long as no-one really seems to hate their job...

btw Wocca, whats the pay like with TEFL? enough to get by one and buy a few crates of beers?

standard 5 day a week job , hours can be anything from 8 - 16 hour day..... worst times are in the summer oh and new year....

besides that for extra cash - i teach english to colleagues who want to improve, the hourly pay is better then the 'real' job but less frequent so can't live on it, i babysit friends kids who work late or weekend shifts every second week, wrote my first short story for a mate who is starting a new comic..

as for hating the jobs - well if it ever got that bad i wouldn't do it !;)
