The best two things to do are to save some amount of money and to find a remote job. For example, start with Asia, many (if not the most) travellers do the same as Asia is cheap. Find and rent a house for a month or two, make sure you have reliable internet access and start working. You can work as freelance copywriter, graphic designer, programmer, English teacher, proof-reader, social media manager, etc. Just start and get some experience while still at home. Then you can work several hours per day and get to know the country and its culture in your spare time.
Read some blogs and follow several world travellers to get the ideas and inspiration, they usually put it quite detailed. And think of your safety when you go as nothing can be worse than falling ill in a foreign country and spending everything on a treatment or getting in debt there. Don't save on travel insurance, choose World Nomads, Globelink.co,uk or Insure and go, depending on your preferences. Good luck! almost 3 years ago
