Wouldn’t it be great to travel all around the world and get free room, board, and a little bit of extra cash for your travels? You can do this by bouncing from youth hostel to youth hostel, agreeing to work for them in exchange for free room and board plus ‘a little bit extra.’
Here’s how it’s done:
Make contact with the youth hostels in the city you’re thinking about traveling to. Call and tell them you’re a newbie traveler (even if you aren’t… it’s all relative!) with little funding to pay to stay at their hostel, but that you’d be happy to work for free at their hostel 3-5 hours per day, 7 days per week, in exchange for a place to sleep.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.” – Helen Keller
I want to open your eyes a bit to the wonderful opportunities the world has to offer. Other than spending 8-plus hours a day in a tiny cubicle, slaving away at something you hate, there are scores of things that you can do to make money in exciting, adventurous ways.
For most of these jobs you don’t need to be young or physically fit. You don’t need to have special training, or training that is not easily acquired. You just need to realize that they’re there and go and get ’em.
Mention that you’re looking at a pro golf career, and most people would assume that you fancied yourself in line to become the next Tiger Woods. What many people don’t know is that golf, a $76 billion worldwide industry, offers a vast range of job opportunities covering, at last PGA count, more than 2 million jobs. For those who have a formal education in golf, the potential for a professional career can open many opportunities.
