    travel the world for free?

    Discussion started by casekonly - Feb 23, 2004

    can it be done? what about becoming a missionary? just to see the world and affect some peoples lives in a good manor, i think it would be worth it.

    i'm considering turning myself into a world citizen..first, new zealand, then australia, then, who knows????

    i just don't know where to begin. i was denied canadian citizenship because of my lack of professional skills. i'm not sure what else i can do to get out fo the country and see the world i live in, i only know that i want to.

    well, abck to researching. i'll keep this thread updated for those interested in doing the same.

    You can ride a bike all the way from Europe to China, or all the way from Canada to Argentina. And you could live on a diet of nuts and berries, and by licking the morning dew off plants.

    DO IT ON A BOAT

    seriously... you can sail around the world crewing on other people's boats.
    The 3 big skills are sailing (navigation). cooking and diesel engine repair.
    If you cant get these 3 down, then you can travel all over the world for free.
    I wish I had done it.

    ive pondered this same question for years.

    couple solutions.

    journalist:
    they get to go all over, see real bitchin stuff and watch history unfold first hand. of course they get blown up by american planes sometimes, but i mean, every occupation has its hazzards.

    UN:
    a certain board members father works for the UN, bartering with warlords to get aid to impoverished people. sweet job right? right! they've got to live all over the world. pretty sweet if you ask me.

    peace corp:
    this one involves too many hippies, too many unshaven women and too much mud, no thanks.

    my plan?
    currently going to school to be a paramedic, then i'll travel through war torn countries fixing kids that step on landmines. i will also be taking photos and writing books/essays on the conditions, people and events.
    it's not going to pay shit, but it'll be a life worth living.

    you just gotta get creative.

    what about missionary work seeks? it seems to be ok, you get free lodging, free food, and money to spend. i just don't know how to go about getting info on a good program...

    dont feel bad bro, I'm a hard act to follow.

    If you want to do it the professional route,
    get a degree in something like 'Hotel / Restaurant Management'
    and then you can get trasfered all over the world once you get some
    senority. I know a bunch of cats who are just ski bums but the work
    around the world in hotels where ever the snow weason is busy.

    You have to ask yourself 'Do I want to go to rough spots or to paradise?'

    a friend of mine is working with 'Doctors Without Borders' in the Sudan.
    I get emails form him and his adventures are without equal.

    If you don't mind going to war and getting shot at it...I suppose you could join the military.

    As I explained to a West Point cadet years ago...its not that I don't want to serve my country...I just have issues with people shooting at me.

    I'd go the bike route...namely because I already plan on doing so.

    missionary work?
    you want to go into the jungle and tell a 10,000 year old civilization that their 'tree god' is wrong, i mean...go ahead.

    only thing i can think of is to hit up google and start searching. you can also try sites like 'lonely planet' (dont know the url), there will probably be info on such things.

    another thing you can do, is if you can speak any foreign language, is to call that countries tourist bureau and ask about positions in their tourist industry. it wont pay well im sure, but it might get you over there.

    another option is to get to a country and then just look for work in and around the tourist market. check with hostels and stuff like that. they wont pay well either, but you'll prolly get a free bed and a chance to bang more 20 something girls than you've ever had in your life.
