3 Ways To See The World For Free

Updated on March 8, 2011

Looking to see the world but can't swing the cost of long-term travel.

Here are 3 ways to travel without a lots of bucks in your pocket.

Teach English Conversation

3/4 of the world needs to learn to speak English as a second language. Learning to speak like a pro involves polishing your conversation with a native speaker who can be in short supply in say Eastern Mongolia.

daveseslcafe.com lists opportunities for native speaker all over the world. Sometimes schools fear that a professional teacher will be a formal stiff who churns out dull grammar lessons. An enthusiastic conversationalist up-to-date on the latest celebrity gossip can be more popular with the students and the schools.

Contracts vary. Often the school will pay for your ticket overseas, arrange accomodations, pay your monthly salary and a bonus.

Willing Worker on Organic Farms

Release your inner farmer! Even if you don’t have any horticulture experience, Willing Workers on Organic Farms (www.wwoofinternational.org) may be looking for you.to till their fields. Organic farming is taking off all over the world. The farms are often too small to take advantage of large machinery and industrialized farming techniques which means a big demand for old-fashioned manual labour. Plus imagine how good you'll look after all that physical fitness.

You usually have to arrange your own transport to the farm. But food and accommodation are provided free in exchange for your labot.

Volunteer

Volunteering is  a way to try re truly help people and do something good for the planet. Everything from guarding sea tutle eggs during the hatching season, delivering food to disaster victims and archeology digs in rural France are available . To find out more hook up with Intrenational Volunteer Agencies like http://www.volunteerinternational.org/.

      I am living on the road now for ten months, almost without money. During that time I worked as a volunteer in a monastery in Lithuania, in an ecovillage in Denmark and in a cultural center in Estonia. It is a challenge but it is also fun, fun, fun ... Expect the unexpected!
