    Travel writing is a great profession and experience. If you’re well travelled and love discovering new places, its perfect for you being able to share your stories and tips. I would recommend going on some expeditions that are guided and ran, so that you can experience a country with like minded people, where there’s structured activities but also free time to explore and have fun. This allows you to become involved in teaching, community projects, water sports, trekking, and so much more.
