Print on Demand

When you compare dropshipping to a regular e-store, things are much easier with the former. No need to pay the staff, no inventory problems, and so on. You have much more free time on your hands and can focus on marketing and other matters. And such things are possible from anywhere in the world, so long as you have a computer and an internet connection.

Printify has all the information you might want about print on demand business, and when you are traveling, it would probably be better to go with this particular business model.

Getting to explore new locations, speaking with locals, getting exposed to never-seen-before cultures will work as an excellent source of inspiration for your designs.

Blogging

This one should be a no-brainer as there are so many traveling bloggers who are making money by simply writing about their adventures. Of course, breaking through is tough since there are so many well-established bloggers, but even they had to start from somewhere, right?

You can also take a more unique approach, and instead of writing every little detail in words, create a social media channel and turn that into a blog.

Photography

Similar to blogging, you can make plenty of money by becoming a photographer and taking your camera with you everywhere you travel. And since you can post your photos online and showcase your work to others, the money will be coming your way even when you are traveling.

You can sell photos on the internet, enter them and participate in various content, and even slowly build your portfolio and reputation to a point when others will be hiring you for various events because they have recognized your talent.

Traveling around the world gives you quite a lot of experience. There are a lot of people who are looking to travel as well but they are sometimes afraid simply because they have never done this sort of thing before. And the anxiety grows even more if you have to do everything alone.

So the natural thing to solve the problem is quite simple – reading about it. And books are a quite popular companion for traveling. 

If you have encountered various problems yourself or talked about them with other travelers, writing a book should not be that difficult. 

Guide

Becoming a guide will limit you to particular locations, but that does not mean you cannot expand and become a traveling guide on something like a cruise ship. 

The first thing you will have to do is become really familiar with the areas you want to be a guide of and slowly build your profile to a point where you are considered to be an expert on the matter.

Translating

Traveling around the world and getting to interact with locals as well as other people traveling with you provides a lot of opportunities to start speaking other languages. It might be slow at first, with a couple of words and phrases, but if you have a knack for learning languages, becoming a translator is one of the best available jobs. Especially if you can master a language that is not as popular.
