[ad] Keeping Track of Life whilst Travelling – One of the most common causes of anxiety for a lot of people when they’re travelling is how they’re going to keep on top of the bills etc. Here’s a few tips that I find help me when I am travelling.
For some people the best kind of lifestyle is not settling in one place for too long. And many people find travelling is one of the best and most exciting things in the world. What could be better than being able to see new places and try new things all the time? I’m sure that kind of life is incredibly rewarding for those with a true spirit of adventure, and I’m sure there’s are lots of people who love being a “rolling stone”. However, it does come with its own set of challenges. The most significant challenge is that it can often be hard to juggle the various aspects of your life when you’re always on the go. With that in mind, here are a few tips how to keep on top of things if like me, you’re always travelling, and how you can enrich your education too.
Enrichment through Learning
If you’re trying to improve yourself or become more qualified to enhance your career, it can often feel very overwhelming and almost impossible when you’re always moving around. After all, how are you supposed to attend lectures and classes when you’re in a different country? Well, thanks to the internet it’s never been easier to learn on the go. Something like an online MBA program allows you to study no matter where in the world you are, giving you a certain amount of learning freedom. It may not be exactly what you imagine when you thinking about studying, but many online courses are just as well-regarded as the more traditional “contact hours” ones where you will need to attend in person. I completed my own “on-line” photography course a few years ago, and whilst travelling – I found it quite easy to follow the syllabus whilst I was on the move, especially as some of the tasks were to take photos locally, which added even more enrichment to the learning process.
Paying your bills
One of the most common causes of anxiety for a lot of people when they’re travelling is how they’re going to keep on top of their bills. Well, once again the internet comes to the rescue. One of the best things about the modern age is that it’s never been easier to find temporary work, even if you’re only in a certain place for a couple of months or less. Apps like Fiverr allow you to take on local temporary work so that you’re able to pay your way whilst you’re travelling. This is obviously more suited to Gap Year students maybe, but I do know many adult friends who have used this app and have got work overseas whilst they were travelling, so it IS for all ages! And, if like me you are travelling for work and don’t need to find a job, I keep on top of all my bills with on-line banking apps, which are very secure and easy to use.
Keeping in touch with your loved ones
Travelling is exciting and exhilarating, but it can also be lonely. Being away from the people you love is always going to be tough. Luckily, there are things like social media, instant messaging, and Skype to help you keep in touch with people no matter how far away you might be. I use Whatsapp to send my family messages as well as being able to call them through the app too. I think one of the most important things to remember is that there’s no reason to stop you from seeing the world. We live in an age where keeping in touch, whatever it may be for, is easy and becoming more affordable – many phone companies now offer unlimited data and overseas roaming packages which give you almost unlimited access to study, pay your bills and keep in touch with your family. So, if you have wanderlust, then it’s never better time to travel and explore the world!
