Travel Tips: HOW TO GET PAID TO TRAVEL THE WORLD

What’s up, guys? I’m Tom, and my friend is Daniel. And we are the Queridobuenosaires. And this post is about how to get paid to travel the world?

8 Tips: Get Paid to Travel The World For You

These days we travel the world through this my blog. But before we started this post, we worked a number of different jobs to fund our travels. The key to long-term travel is finding jobs that will take you to new places, help you save cash, and let you travel in your free time.

Teaching English

Here are eight ideas: Number one: Teaching English is a great way to immerse yourself in the foreign culture, learn a new language, and travel on the weekends. In countries like the UAE or Korea, the pay is high and they’ll often time cover accommodations and flights, which is a great option if you have student loans.

In countries like Spain where he taught English for three years, the pay wasn’t really high, buy it gave us plenty of free time to develop the skills we needed to start this my blog. Mas fiesta!

Tour Guide 

Number 2: Tour Guide. Working as a tour guide is a great option, especially if you speak another language, or if you studied something relevant. You can find companies at home that operate abroad, but sometimes it’s just best to show up and find a job on the spot. Plus, you can always offer free tours and ask for tips.

Work on a Cruise Ship or Yacht

Number 3: Work on a Cruise Ship or Yacht. Modern cruise ships are enormous with over a 1000 crew, ranging from fitness instructors to cooks. Now the pay is not high, and the hours are long, but you get to travel to dozens of countries, and it’s a good option if you come from a relatively lower wage economy.

On the other end of the spectrum, you could work on a private yacht, but this usually requires some sailing experience as well as a maritime safety certification.

Work Remotely

Number 4: Work Remotely. These days certain jobs can be done from anywhere, whether it’s programming to graphic design or freelance writing and photography. Websites like Upward can help you find work as a freelancer, or hire other freelancers to help you take your show on the road.

The key is “Geo Arbitrage” earning money in a strong currency and spending it where life’s a little bit cheaper. Think Southeast Asia. A good resource to learn more is Timothy Ferriss’ The 4- Hour Workweek. Seriously, read the book.

Become a Flight Attendant

Number 5: Become a Flight Attendant. For the young and single, becoming a flight attendant is an excellent option. Depending on your routes, you can visit multiple countries every month, and perks include free flights and discounts across the travel industry. Not for you, then just fall in love with a flight attendant or a pilot. Thank You. Enjoy your flight.

Benefits extend to family members for life. Want something more settled? Be an au pair It’s not a fruit. It’s French for the nanny. There’s plenty of websites that will match you with a host family in your country of choice, giving you a salary, visa, and accommodation. Plus, living with a host family is the best way to immerse yourself in a local culture.

For the academically inclined, consider getting a graduate degree abroad. School is free in many European countries, and in Scandinavia, they even pay you to go to school. Say what? Seriously. There are also scholarships that will fund you to do research abroad. We wrote a blog post on this topic, and we will put a link in the infobox.

Work For The Government

Number 6: Work For The Government. Diplomatic types can apply for the foreign service, volunteers for the Peace Corps, and of course, you can always join the military. Or if you’ve got a troubled past and in the market for an EU citizenship, you can always join the French Foreign Legion.  

Apply For a Transfer

Number 7: Apply For a Transfer. Most major cooperations have offices overseas, often times in really cool countries with a lower cost of living. So instead of quitting your job, you could just outsource yourself. Apply for a transfer for 6 months to a year, and that could be even better than getting a raise or the corner office.

Start a Travel Blog or Vlog

Number 8: Start a Travel Blog or Vlog. That’s what we did. Success by no means is guaranteed, and it’s probably going to take a long time. But, if you do it in conjunction with some of these other jobs, it could become your main source of income in no time. Those were our tips on how to get paid to travel the world.

Travel Tips: HOW TO BOOK CHEAP FLIGHTS

What’s up? We’re the QueridoBuenoAires, and this is the second half of a two-part series about how to book cheap flights. Part one is about the best booking sites. So if you haven’t seen that post, click on that little card up there.Read it, and then come back to read this one. Once you’re familiar with the best booking sites, keep the following tips in mind before you pull the trigger.

Number one; stay flexible with your dates. Shifting your dates of arrival or departures by a day or two can save you a lot of money and the more flexible you are, the more you save.Websites like Kayak or Momomndo make this super simple with tools that allow you to compare rates across the entire month.

Number two: travel when no one else wants to. Inconvenience saves money. Everyone wants to arrive a day or two before a major holiday, which makes traveling on those holidays or the day after much less expensive Nothing like celebrating Christmas at 30,000 feet And if you look out the left-hand side, you’ll see Santa Claus with all nine of his reindeer. Same thing goes with taking the earliest flight of the day, generally the cheapest, or the last one, known as the “redeye” for a reason.

Number three: switch up your destination. If you keep an open mind about where you’re going, you can save a lot of money. Some booking sites suggest where you can go for your budget and interest, while others have maps with airfares. For example, Paris is nice, but you can fly to Bogota or Copenhagen for a lot cheaper. Just keep in mind how much it costs once you get there.

Number four: mix and match flights. Sometimes if you’re flying long distances, it’s actually cheaper to book your connecting flights separately. For example, if you’re flying from New York to Paris, first book a flight across the Atlantic to maybe London, and then get a connecting flight on a budget airline. But, be warned when making separate bookings on different airlines.

If your first flight gets delayed and you miss your connecting flight on a different airline, you’re not going to get rebooked, and you may even have to buy a new ticket. No Bueno.

Number five: sign up for fare alerts. No one likes a crowded inbox, but websites like airfare watchdog send you notifications about discounted flights from your home airport, inspiring some seriously spontaneous adventures. Airlines also do this. So keep your ear to the ground by signing up for the mailing list or following them on social media. Number 6: know when to book.

Now rumor has it that booking on a Wednesday is the cheapest, but the jury is still definitely out on that one. What’s more certain is that booking six weeks ahead is probably going to be cheaper. However, if you know your dates for sure, book as early as possible, especially with budget airlines as their prices will go up as you get closer to the departure date. Another crucial tip is to put your browser into the incognito mode when searching for flights.

Booking sites often track when you come back to the same fare. and they’ll up the price because they know you want it. Lastly, you can redeem frequent flyers miles for flights But realistically, that’s a whole other subject. So stay tuned for a dedicated video on miles coming soon.

Travel Tips: BEST FLIGHT BOOKING SITES

What’s up, guys? We’re Alex and Marko, the QueridoBuenoAires and this is the first post in a two-part series about how to book cheap flights. In part two, we’re sharing specific hacks. But in this first post, we’re going to show you some booking sites, which compare flights from dozens of different airlines all around the world.

When it comes to booking airfares, there are plenty of start-ups that will help you find the best flight. But, there’s a lot, and sometimes it can feel like trying to find a needle in a haystack. So these are our favorite booking sites: each one has different tools, which will help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

So get ready to bookmark the following pages: Bookmarking! Start your search with Kayak.com, which taps into hundreds of sources to help you find the cheapest flight. Its simple design helps you compare or adjust dates and destinations. So if you’re flexible, you can save a lot of money.

Their explore function is a blessing for free spirits. You just put in your budget and browse the world map to see how much bang you can get for your buck. You’ll be surprised by the results. You’ll be surprised about how good you feel at Men’s Warehouse. You’ll look good. I guarantee it. You’ll be surprised by the results.

Number 2: Google Flights. It’s Google, so it is fast. But the results are not always the cheapest. Its speed does make it really useful in the beginning when you’re changing dates and destinations. It’s great for comparison: a second opinion.

It also has an explorer map, which is Google maps overlaid with airfare, but our favorite feature is Discover Destinations, which allows you to choose your interest and budget and find out where you can go on that budget. For now, Google flights is a great research tool, not necessarily one for booking, but in the future with Google as the boss, I’m sure it’s going to improve.

Number 3: Momondo is a solid site both well designed and functional. It presents your options with a bar graph that shows fares across time, as well as three options for sorting the results: the cheapest; the quickest; and the best overall. It also has the new Trip Finder function, which allows you to put in what you’re looking for and your budget. For example, nightlife in South America for 1000 bucks.You can then click further filters to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Hola, chica. Que tal? Vamos! Alex singing in Spanish Number 4: SkyScanner. Whenever we travel in Europe, our go-to search engine is Skyscanner because it pulls together budget fares, like Ryan Air and Easy Jet that a lot of other sites don’t include. Skyscanner also has an explore feature, which allows you to browse cheap flights from your point of departure. Unfortunately, it’s not in a map form anymore: it’s only as a list, and I personally find this a little bit less useful.

One downside of Skyscanner it that it’s really strong in Europe, but not so much in other destinations, although it is expanding into North America and Asia. Another crucial tip is to put your browser into Incognito Mode when searching for flights. Bookings sites often track when you come back to the same fare, and they’ll up the price because they know you want it. It’s shady, but you can beat the system with a single click.

Number 6; HipMunk Apart from having a “totes adorbs” [totally adorable] chipmunk for a mascot, it sorts your search results into sending order of agony which is calculated from price, trip times, and layovers. It then lays out results by departure and arrival time, which can be really helpful if you’re not too flexible on time. But, the filters don’t work as well as on other sites, so in sum, it’s better for people who prioritize saving time over saving money. Last up, we have Airfare Watch Dog.

This one is a lot different than the rest because it has actual people,,,, living humans, searching for cheap flights, not just algorithms To make the most of it, you’ve really got to sign up for their email notification so that when one of these real humans actually finds a cheap flight, they’ll send you a notification giving you a chance to pounce on that discount before anyone else does.

That means it’s not great if you have to buy something specific right away. But it’s perfect for coupon clippers who are willing to plan their entire trip around a discount. Remember, guys. It’s always a good idea to double check between multiple websites, and keep an eye out for hidden fees and baggage charges before you make that purchase. If you have any tips od your own, make sure you put them in the comment box.

Some Tips On How To Survive A Long Flight For You

Hello there, travelers. I’m Quaro. I’m Peter. And we are the Querido. And in this post, we are going to share some tips on how to survive a long flight.

These days there are direct flights halfway around the world, which is great, but it means flights are longer than ever. So we’re going to share with you 10 tips on how to survive a flight, and maybe even enjoy it.

Number 1: Rest before you go. One of the simplest ways to improve your travel experience is to make sure you’re well rested before you take off. Even better, the night before you fly adjust your watch to local time at your destination to help your body get adjusted.

Number 2: Upgrade your seat. Now most of us can’t afford business class, but a lot of airlines offer premium economy, which you can upgrade to using cash or frequent flyer miles. But it never hurts to go to the gate agent with a smile & ask if there are any extra seats in the emergency row. Thank you. Enjoy your flight. Bye.

Number 3: Once you’re on board, get comfortable. Take anything out of your backpack that you might need, like headphones, water bottle, or a book, and then store your bag in the overhead compartment, not down below. Trust me, you’re going to want the extra leg room. To get extra comfy, take your shoes off because cabin pressure affects your circulation.

Number 4: Dress right. Airplanes get really cold, and a lot of them don’t even give you a blanket. They left me with no blanket! So you need to dress warm and wear layers. Jacket, scarves and wool socks are a great call, but leave your skinny jeans at home unless you want a ten-hour wedgie. Ten-hour wedgie? No thank you!

Number 5: Pack good gear. Little things can make a big difference. If you plan to sleep, eye shades, neck pillow, and ear plugs are crucial and easy to pack. Noise canceling headphones are great, as are Kindles and tablets. Just make sure you charge everything and download any videos, podcasts, or ebooks you want before you fly.

Number 6: Pass the time. Nowadays, most airlines offer free entertainment, be it movies, music, or TV. But sometimes you’ve got to pay. Now on a long flight that might be worth it, but you can always use the time for some distraction-free reading. Maybe get a little bit of work done? Or you could always read that weird little magazine they put in the seat back pocket.

Number 7: Eat and drink right. Long flights usually have food included. So choose carb-rich foods if possible. They’re high in insulin and will help you adjust to jet lag. Stay hydrated by bringing your own water bottle. You can get the flight attendants to fill this up in the galley. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, if possible, but if you do imbibe, you can use these kits to turn a good drink into a craft cocktail. Winning.

Number 8: Befriend the flight crew. Flight attendants have a tough job dealing with hundreds of people, and they usually just get bitched at. So a little bit of kindness can go a long way. You can chat them up when you’re waiting for the bathroom and remember to always say please and thank you because chances are they may have a spare meal or a glass of wine that they’ll give you if you are nice. And if all else fails, you can always bribe them with chocolate.

Number 9: Move around. Flying is not natural. It impedes your circulation, which can lead to deep vein thrombosis. It doesn’t sound fun. Avoid this by taking a lap around the airplane or doing some simple exercises.

Number 10: Arrive fresh. Wash your face, brush your teeth, maybe even change your shirt. Little things can go long way to helping you hit the ground running. Well, those are our tips. What are yours? Make sure you share them in the comment box. If you’ve enjoyed the video, give it a thumbs-up, share it with your friends, and follow to QueridoBuenoAires for new travel post every Tuesday.

25 Things Your Hotel Staff You Should Know

Today queridobuenosaires.com will tell you 25 Things Your Hotel Staff You Should Know.

Number twenty-five independently owned hotels are far more likely to give you a discount some chains balk at dropping the rate.

Number twenty-four supposedly eco-friendly programs such as opting out of having your room cleaned everyday can sometimes be an excuse to not pay the housekeeper or at least to get them to work less.

Number twenty-three housekeepers have the most dangerous job in the hotel with everything from constantly moving mattresses and furniture it’s always being exposed to trash leftovers and other sometimes nauseating messes.

Number twenty-two leaving a tip for housekeeping is usually appreciated but is largely gone out of style.

Number twenty-one if you do leave a tip then put it under the pillow and leave a note with it.

So it’s clear who it’s for number twenty hotels can pay a commission of up to 30 percent for online booking sites to keep that price in mind. When you’re negotiating and you might reach a deal faster.

Number nineteen the 1-800 reservations number will probably send you to a central office with set rates if you call the hotel directly instead you can negotiate.

Number eighteen when it comes to negotiation, however, be careful because of the hotel overbooks then guess who loses their room first that’s right the cheap customers.

Number seventeen also by booking directly with a hotel you’ll lose the leverage that a reputable middleman can give you if something is unsatisfactory.

Number sixteen for only $10 per hour your front desk clerk runs errands plunges toilets ties bow ties delivers towels handles dead bodies yes it happens and makes breakfast.

Number fifteen if you travel to the same location frequently use the same hotel and don’t act like a jerk you might notice some free upgrades coming your way.

Number fourteen more things are negotiable than you would think if your hotel offers a hot breakfast buffet as well as a free continental breakfast ask if you can get the hot breakfast with your room you might be surprised.

Number thirteen sometimes bosses make employees lie what else is new like when the elevator is broken and the clerk will tell you someone’s coming to fix it even though it won’t be a week because the hotel doesn’t want to pay the weekend repair rate.

Number twelve some concierge does get kickbacks for sending you to pricey tourist traps an unbiased recommendation ask the clerk.

Number eleven if you request a king bed there’s no guarantee no matter how confident the reservation agent sounds call the hotel to make the shirt and then call again the day before you leave.

Number ten don’t ask for an upgrade when other guests are within earshot one or more spacious room without paying more request a corner room.

Number nine one of the easiest ways to increase your chances of getting upgraded is to arrive early in the day when rooms are being prepped and inventoried.

Number eight although many times the freebies like water bottles and Wi-Fi come with a fee you may be able to get them for free simply by asking in advance.

Number seven you probably already know this but you’re paying for location if you really don’t have to be on Main Street get something that’s still close but not 100 dollars more expensive.

Number six you also pay for the name like we said earlier independent hotels can have numerous advantages of their own besides the majority of top-rated hotels and major destinations are not branded.

Number five even if the menu doesn’t have a children’s section you can almost always get a discount at kid’s menu if you just ask.

Number four one more thing about tips most hotels have a rotating staff so every day you have a new housekeeper. So yes that means you should tip daily five dollars for three-star hotels ten dollars for four stars and 20 for five.

Number three remember that more stars don’t necessarily equate the better service the stars only indicate a difference in amenities such as room size or the number of outlets.

Number two this means that a five-star hotel can have one-star service and number one the best way to get a comprehensive idea of where you’ll be spending the night is to read customer reviews as they generally are the most accurate.

If you like this post, you can share this post for your family. Goodbye, See you again in the next tips, trick.
