How to earn extra money on my trips? Does any body know some resourses?

First off it depends where you wish to travel. Countries like Australia or New Zealand have certain working visas that allow tourists to earn some money while they travel while other countries like Indonesia even tourists doing volunteer work is illegal. You'll have to give more details as to your plans.

Write articles for travel magazines and have the money paid into your home account.

From what I've read elsewhere I'd concluded it's hard to make significant money this way. But I'd be interested to hear a personal view - have you funded your travels this way?

No, I'm not a writer; I'm an editor. I have a few friends who do travel writing and travel photography but they do it for a living not to make extra money while traveling. Making money outside your home country can be tricky if you are taking a job from a citizen who needs it. Most countries have pretty strict rules about who can and can't work. Illegal workers often don't get treated well and can get in real trouble depending on where they are.

BTW, the poster indicated he wanted to make "extra" travel money, not significant money. That would be a great difference. Local magazines, professional magazines and trade magazines will often buy short, relevant travel articles, especially if you can feature something they are featuring or selling. If you're just looking for a few extra dollars, it works.

Two first-time posters, two four-letter usernames, both with the underline at the end, one answering the other's question with a promotional link. Looks like this is no coincidence. Do I sniff advertising in disguise?
