Spend a Season Working in a Summer Camp in Different Countries
Working with children can be one of the most rewording ways to spend some time abroad, earn some money and still do some cross-country traveling. So, if you love children and have some experience in certain sports or other useful skills, than the door to endless possibilities is always open. You can earn $1.000-5000 for a few months of fun and still fund your dream vacation. This experience alone can look great on your resumé and if you play it right, you can work in different states or countries to make things more interesting and broaden your horizons.

Having a bachelor’s degree can go a long way. There is no upper age to be a volunteer, in fact more than 5% are over the age of 50.
