Opportunities to earn while travelling; I once met a young guy who had a small stash of electrical components and solder who made his way by repairing radios etc (usually a good clean was all that was required !).

It all depends on what you want to make from travel. Few jobs are well paid, but the freelance vision is most alluring - passive income sounds perfect.

I wish good luck to anyone giving it a shot - it's very satisfying and liberating. But don't be under any illusions - to make a living beyond your immediate needs requires quite a lot of actual work and application and not just lolling around on a beach !
