Welcome to the Twenty-Something Traveler – the new travel podcast only on BTR! Hosted by DJ Jess, this podcast is entirely dedicated to helping twenty-somethings get out and travel. An array of guests from around the globe will teach you how to do it for cheap — including info on couchsurfing, work study, AirBnB, hitchhiking, walking, road trips, and all manner of ways to see the world you haven’t considered. Plus each week we’ll ask a local living in a popular destination to curate their best 24-hours there so you’ll get the most authentic experience possible from the minute you arrive!
This week’s topic is the first of a repeating segment on TST – how to make money when you travel. Yes, it IS possible, and by doing so you can extend your adventures on into infinity. My guests today are both experts at earning while on the road, and they’re going to share helpful tips and tricks for getting gigs that you probably never thought of!
First, Turner Barr, author behind the blog Around The World in 80 Jobs, talks working odd jobs and networking.
