Paid job idea 5: Fruit picking, farm and ranch work

Fruit picking or farm work is an excellent way to earn money quickly, and there are so many paid farm or ranch jobs available, particularly in Australia and New Zealand.

If you want fresh air & hard work and want to work with animals or pick fruit, a farm or ranch job is the ideal outdoors work abroad.

Paid Job Idea 6: Teaching Jobs

Teaching English as a foreign language is a favourite among travellers, and for good reason, as paid teaching is a truly beneficial experience likely to open up a whole array of doors for future jobs both in the UK and abroad. Most countries will provide paid teachers with a good wage, offering travellers a great way to gain first-hand experience of a culture whilst earning money and learning a new skill.
