 Exploring the world can cost a pretty penny, but you can lower the cost of travel — and deepen your experience at each location — by doing side jobs along the way. Here are 10 ways to earn money while abroad。

  探索世界可能花费不菲,但降低旅行成本的办法还是有的,而且,或许你还能通过边旅行边打工来丰富在各地的经历哦。下面10个方法就教你如何边旅行边赚钱!

  1. Write About It

  写游记

  Travel writing may not pay much to start, but if you're traveling in countries with a lower cost of living, it may be enough. At first, I was making $10 an article, but after I accumulated more experience, several websites offered me more. The best thing about travel writing is that you can do it from anywhere, as long as you have an Internet connection, so you're not tied down to one place for long。

  写游记或许刚开始赚不了多少钱,但如果你旅行国家的消费水平不是很高,游记稿费也还不错。一开始,我每篇游记的收入是10美元,但后来随着经验的积累,其他网站也开始向我约稿。写游记的好处是,只要能上网,你在任何地方都能写,不会因此耽搁在什么地方。

  2. Work in Hospitality

  酒店工作

  English speakers are needed to greet tourists at hotels and resorts around the world, so if you're interested in the hospitality industry, that might be a good place to find a job. In the short term, you might be able to get free room and board at a local hostel in exchange for a few weeks of work at the front desk。

  世界各地的酒店和度假胜地都需要能讲英语的人招待游客,所以如果你对酒店业感兴趣,不妨在酒店找份差事。短期来讲,做几周的前台工作,或许你还能在本地酒店得到免费食宿。

  3. Sell Stuff Online

  网上卖东西

  The country in which you're traveling might have lots of adorable knick-knacks that folks back home would love. For a little extra income, selling local goods on eBay might be a good way to make a buck or two。

  你旅行的国家或许有很多小玩意儿深受国内人喜爱。想挣点外快的话,可以在eBay上卖点本地特产。

  4. Au Pair or Nanny

  住家保姆

  A friend of mine spent a year as a live-in nanny, or au pair, in Paris. If you love kids, this might be the perfect opportunity for you to live with a local family and learn local customs, while being able to travel on weekends. Au Pair International is one of many organizations that trains au pairs and matches them with families abroad。

  我有个朋友曾在巴黎做过一年的住家保姆。如果你喜欢小孩,这或许就是不错的机会——你可以住到当地人家里,了解当地人情风俗,还能趁周末去旅行。国际保姆组织可以提供培训并为住家保姆匹配外国家庭。

  5. Get a Stipend as a Student

  争取学生津贴

  Many universities around the world offer scholarships for Masters' or PhD programs, along with a small stipend and sometimes student housing. Although this stipend isn't usually enough to let you live in style, you can always supplement your income by tutoring other students。

  世界各地许多大学都会向攻读硕士或博士学位的人提供奖学金,有时甚至还提供住宿和少量津贴。津贴比较少,不足以保证你过得像模像样,但你总可以做家教赚外快。

  6. Teach Fitness Classes

  指导健身培训

  If you're qualified to teach yoga, Pilates, tai chi, or another kind of fitness activity, you may be in demand as an instructor around the world. You might want to look into opening a studio in your home or offering classes at the local beach (especially in popular tourist locations where people are looking for the "Eat, Pray, Love" experience). The great thing about offering classes on your own is that you can work on your own schedule, and you're not tied to a contract, allowing you to take off and travel whenever you want。

  如果你有能力教瑜伽、普拉提、太极拳或其他健身项目,那你在任何地方都可以尝试做健身指导员。你既可以在家开一间培训室,也可以在附近沙滩上课。(尤其是在 有名气的景点,那里到处都是期待影片《美食祈祷和恋爱》经历的游客。)自己开培训班的好处是,你可以自主安排时间,不必受合同约束,只要愿意,随时都能出 去游玩!

  7. Adventure Sports Instructor

  冒险运动指导员

  You can teach almost any sport at a basic level if you're an experienced practitioner. You might consider teaching surfing or kite surfing, leading mountain biking rides, or teaching basic rock climbing. If you choose to teach an adventure sport, it might be best to go through a company or resort to minimize your liability. Make sure you have good insurance as well。

  如果你经验比较丰富,可以尝试任何运动的基础指导员,比如冲浪、风筝冲浪、山地骑行、基础攀岩等等。当然,如果指导的是冒险运动,最好和公司或度假地签合同,尽量降低自己的责任风险;同时也别忘了为自己买保险呵。

  8. Tour Guide

  导游

  Working with a tour company allows you to explore the local sights while being paid. If you're more active, leading bike tours might be a fun way to earn money while being a tourist。

  在旅游公司工作不仅能四处观光,还能领取报酬。要是你精力充沛,组织骑行观光会相当有趣!

  9. Food Industry

  餐饮业

  Foreigners living in countries around the world are willing to pay a premium for familiar food and drink. I know a few people who have made a living as chefs and bartenders around the world, or as restaurant managers. Another friend of mine worked as a wine expert at various vineyards in New Zealand for several months. If working in a restaurant sounds too stressful, a more flexible option would be to offer cooking classes to either expats or locals。

  身居国外的人通过喜欢购买自己熟悉的饮食。我认识的人中就有在世界各地做厨师、调酒师或餐厅经理的,我还有个朋友在新西兰的各大葡萄园做了几个月的品酒专家。如果你觉得在餐厅工作太累,可以选择随意一点的烹饪班,教老外或本地人做菜。

  10. Dog Walker

  遛狗

  I literally JUST saw an ad for a live-in dog walker in London, UK. The position entailed 25 flexible hours a week, and included room and board as well as $100 a week! It's the perfect situation for exploring a new city, especially one where accommodations are expensive。

  说真的,我刚刚就看到一个在招英国伦敦家庭遛狗员的广告,要求每周能服务25小时,每周报酬是100美元,含食宿!对那些住宿费太高的人而言,这绝对是探索新城市的大好时机啊!

  There are a wide range of options for earning money while traveling abroad. Some jobs require you to stay in the area for a while, such as teaching jobs, whereas others are more flexible. Think about what skills you have to offer — many of them are likely to be as in demand abroad as they are at home (or even more so)。

  在国外边旅行边挣钱的方法非常多,有些职位可能要求你呆的时间长一些,比如教学,而有些则比较灵活。想想自己有哪些技能可以派上用场,说不定出国以后,你的某些技能会变得格外吃香呢!
