I found this video http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8299780.stm which made me start thinking, again, about volunteering. Just imagine how much there is out there in the world (or around where we live for that matter) that would be at least a tiny bit better if we gave it some of our time. I guess this young man has many many changed lives “on his conscience”.

Of course you don’t have to start your own school, or some other huge project of your own (well, this was actually a very small project from the beginning).

There are plenty of volunteering organizations which you just can join and be part of a movement that gives the world a nudge in a positive direction.

If you want to get an idea of what there is to choose from, here’s a volunteering site that has loads of great information:www.oneworld365.org

Also, looking into this things really make you appreciate and being grateful for what you have, doesn’t it? At least it’s that way for me.

Creating money to travel can be done in many different ways.

beachlaptopYou can sell something you are ready to give up which will then give you the opportunity to do something else or new with your life. Or, you can take on some extra work or find someone who rents your home. Or your main focus may be on saving money by lowering your costs for some time while having your travel dream as a motivating carrot.

The ways to increase your travel budget are many and depends on your personality and personal circumstances. Have a look at www.extendedworldtravel.com/travel-and-money

Creating money to go traveling is one thing. Creating money for an independent lifestyle, where you can go traveling whenever and however long time you want to is something else.

There are several profitable and relatively easy ways to set up a business which gives you an income to rely on while you are on the road (or at home for that matter). Something we ourselves as well as lots of other people who are interested in independent living have discovered is Affiliate Marketing.

This is actually an ancient way of doing business, “nothing new under the sun” as they say. The basic idea with Affiliate Marketing is to get paid a commission if someone buys a product or service on your recommendation.

The new and exciting thing is that now it can all be done over the Internet. It can be automated and it can offer a very high percentage in commission. You can help promote all kind of products, from people from all over the world, to other people all over the world 24/7.

And you don’t even have to be in the “office” to make money. To do this, you don’t have to be a computer genius, some basic computer skills is totally enough.

This can be really fun, as well as extremely profitable. It’s perfect for working from anywhere in the world as it is all automated so you don’t have to sit in front of the computer all the time. You actually earn money while you sleep, or lay on the beach. Or why not use your “free” time to do volunteering and help other people somewhere in the world.

There are two very good books which are voted “best in their field” where you can learn everything imaginable about affiliate marketing and starting your internet business.

One is written by two guys: www.WhoLovesMoney.com

The other one by a woman: www.TheSuperAffiliateHandbook.com

Take your pick! We believe they both can be of excellent help to start your independent online business.

FYI: Yes, these two books are affiliate products! If you by chance find this interesting, you click on the links and decide to go ahead with pursuing this kind of lifestyle and way of making a living by buying one of these products, we will eventually get paid.

Important to remember though is that this does not affect the product or the price in any way for the buyer. It is just the author’s way of expressing their gratitude to us for our help to tell people about their product. For this help they are willing to share their revenue with us which is of course very nice of them.

In a recent post, we told you about our visitor, Tilo, from Brazil. He was staying with us for some time to get a chance to practise his Swedish (his mother is Swedish). Tilo and his family have this fantastic place “Sempre Verde” (which means “always green”), some 90 km from Recife, Brazil. It’s situated on the edge of the Rainforest with a tropical climate.

You can visit this beautiful, ecological place as a paying guest and also as a Volunteer. As a Volunteer you stay at their place and then help the farmers in the area in different ways.

Malin, the mother, has started an Environment and Handicraft School for kids and young people in the area. As a Volunteer you participate in the work in this school as well.

You can read more about it at: www.sempreverde.tur.br

So, if you’re interesting in traveling and giving some of your time and energy at the same time, here’s a great opportunity to do this.You can read more about it in the Volunteering section.
