How to make an income while traveling

How to make an income while traveling!!!

How to make an income while traveling!!! This has been my main focus since we began. Travel is Sweet was conceived as a travel blog for our travel adventures. However, it has since morphed to include our house and pet sitting journey as well. While our website was designed to supply fun, entertainment and interesting content. It was also intended to bring in an income to help support us with associated travel expenses. Now I knew this was going to be challenging but just how much I didn’t realise. So, when I see and read of people saying making money easily, I now know that is not the complete truth. Having read many of these articles and even paid for some the reality is unless you have a decent amount of traffic to your website you will struggle.

Alternatively, we could throw lots of money on advertising our website which is not an option at this point in time. So how do we get more traffic to our website is the question? Content is king they say, so writing excellent quality, informative and fun blogs is essential. Hence, that is my main focus to write these types of blogs. On top of that is SEO, which has taken a little time to learn, but I have now got a better understanding of it. While writing has never been one of my strong points, and what would take a person, blessed with writing skills half the time it takes me, I am getting there. 😊 With this in mind, if you would like me to write a blog on any part of our travels please let me know. How to make an income while traveling is not easy.

The Path Can Be Windy

How to make an income while traveling: The Tools.

Therefore, we have incorporated several different ways to help generate small amounts of income via our website. Mostly these are via affiliate links from which we earn small commissions from those companies. How this works, when a client buys using the links on our website, we receive a small commission. We also have created a house and pet sitting Mentorship Academy Course for those wishing to enter into the house-sitting world. I can also build and host a small website for those wishing an internet presence. Another avenue we have is our association with TEFL courses (Teach English as a Foreign Language) which may be of interest for people wishing to make some extra money by putting their skills to use. Check out this link. Also, all our affiliate links can be found to the right side of this blog post. 

How to make an income while traveling means I have to be willing to put myself out there. Therefore, if you use services such as booking.com, Skyscanner, or need travel insurance it would be great if you could use our affiliate links. We would be very grateful for your support. Our latest inclusion of how to make an income while traveling is Patreon. What is Patreon you ask? Patreon is a site where creatives (people with things to share) can go and create a membership based following. They can publish quality content to their membership base that can be free or paid. While I love to give away information for free which is mostly done on our website. Patreon allows me to add content that can be accessed via a paid membership.

My Top 10 Destinations Part 2

We now continue the list of my top 10 destinations. If you missed part 1 please click here. We start with my number 5 location so please enjoy.

5. Oahu Hawaii USA

my top 10 destinations diamond head travel is sweet

Diamond Head

How could we not have Oahu in my top 10 destinations. For those people that know us, they would know Hawaii is one of our favourite locations having visited 14 times. So what keeps us coming back to this beautiful island. Where do I start!!! Firstly, and most importantly are the local Hawaiian people. They are just the most welcoming, friendliest and relaxed people we have met. Secondly, the scenery around the island is just spectacular from dramatic mountain vistas, tropical island beaches and pineapple covered fields. Thirdly, the atmosphere whether at Haleiwa on the north shore or walking down Kalakaua Ave in Waikiki it is relaxed, chilled and filled with joy. Descending into Honolulu Airport we feel like we are coming home, it is that charm that draws us back time and again. That ahh moment when we step out of the plane and look towards Diamond Head.

my top 10 destinations waikiki beach travel is sweet

Waikiki Beach

Where should you go!!! This is an open-ended question, but  I will give you some places that are worth a visit. For the history buffs, Pearl Harbour is a must, it is very moving when you are on the Arizona memorial. Diamond head is worth the hike, with amazing 360-degree views, from the top. Allow at least 3 hours for a comfortable return hike to the summit. Haleiwa on the north shore is worth a day trip to see. The beach near Haleiwa Beach Park to see the sea turtles (remember to stay a safe distance from them). Also, go to the Aloha General Store for Hawaii’s Best Shaved Ice experience.  Walk along Waikiki Beach and make a date with the Friday night fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Kahanamoku Beach. Stay tuned for a detailed Hawaii post 😊.

4. Hubbard Glacier Alaska USA

my top 10 destinations ice breaking off travel is sweet

Ice Breaking Off

Cruising the inside passage has always been on our bucket list. Having seen and heard so many wonderful reports we were eager to finally see it for ourselves. Hopping on the ship at Seward, Alaska our first stop the next day was Hubbard Glacier, we are not really sure what to expect. However, we stand on the deck excitingly anticipating our first glimpse. Firstly, we sail into Yakutat Bay admiring the splendid scenic vistas of snow-capped mountains and dramatic landscapes. Secondly, into Disenchantment Bay as blocks of ice drift past us, the amazing shades of blue sparkling within the ice are incredible. Rounding the last outcrop of land Hubbard Glacier begins to appear. The more that appears the more awestruck we become. The immenseness of this glacier is truly remarkable and a sight to behold. We stand dumbfounded as the captain positions the ship side on to reveal this wonder.

my top 10 destinations the view travel is sweet

The View

Being an avid photographer, the chance to capture this epic vista is certainly one that I will cherish forever. Snapping away not wanting to miss a shot, I have to stop myself and just look up and take in this special moment in time. It is incredible to capture, but just as important is to be in the present. The width of the glacier was phenomenal, so had to capture it as a panoramic shot. Shades of blues through to aqua can be seen through the white of the ice. Such an epic visual experience is being had by all that are gazing on this natural wonder. Adding to the spectacle was the sound of large sections of ice falling from the glacier into the water. WOW, what a sight and noise that produced! I was lucky enough to capture it on camera. Definitely in my top 10 destinations.

3. Milford Sound New Zealand

my top 10 destinations milford sound travel is sweet

Milford Sound

New Zealand the “Land of the Long White Cloud” and just a short trip across the ditch for us Aussies. It is the home to amazing natural wonders, however, one stands out, from our time spent in Kiwi Land that is Milford Sound. Located on the south-west coast of the South Island approximately 290 kilometres from Queenstown. Milford Sound makes it to number 3 on my top 10 destinations. Before we make it to Milford Sound the drive in alone was spectacular, with snow-capped mountains on either side. Crossing over gentle running creeks to fast flowing rivers. Lovely rolling countryside home to sheep and cattle. Also, picture-perfect lakes that reflected the surrounding background like those seen on postcards. Furthermore, as we weave through the mountains we are presented with beautiful vistas and amazing waterfalls. Not to mention the one laned tunnel through a large mountain.

my top 10 destinations waterfall travel is sweet

Waterfall and Carolyn

Descending down the winding well-worn road lays the dock where we will board our ship for the cruise. We are treated to the spectacular views of Milford Sound and the incredible surrounding mountains that encircle it. Off in the distance, the telltale signs of waterfalls cutting down the mountainsides sending plumes of spray into the air can be seen. Boarding our vessel we wait with anticipation for the magnificent views that will greet us over the coming hours. In time, this would prove to be true. In fact, we were so close to the waterfalls people on the deck got very wet. However, due to the cool temperatures we took refuge inside and stayed dry and warm 😊. Albeit, a fairly long road trip from Queenstown to Milford Sound the incredible pristine views and epic vistas outweigh the hours spent on the coach. Make this a bucket list item.

2. Great Smoky Mountains Gatlinburg Tennessee USA

my top 10 destinations roaring fork lookout travel is sweet

Roaring Fork Outlook

The Great Smoky Mountains while being a last-minute inclusion into our itinerary it just blew our socks off. As Angela N. Blount said, “Sometimes the most scenic roads in life are the detours you didn’t mean to take.”  How true this turned out to be. Having only made this a belated 1-night stay over, we soon turned, into 2 nights. Furthermore, we are now just a month away from leaving Australia heading back to this amazing place for a least a 2-week stay. That is the extent that the Great Smoky Mountains has touched us. From the outset driving through Pigeon Forge we were totally surprised at this out of the way town and what it had to offer. Dolly Parton fans this is a place you would love to visit. Continuing on we enter the hamlet of Gatlinburg entrance to the Great Smokey Mountains.

my top 10 destinations wood cabin travel is sweet

Wood Cabin in the Smokies

Having never experienced true autumn where the tree leaves change colours so drastically we are mesmerised, to say the least. While only catching this change late in the fall we were still gobsmacked at its beauty. As we followed the GPS through the back streets of Gatlinburg to our hotel, we came across a black bear, what a great moment adding to our overall experience. To see the changing colours of the leaves and the magnificent tree-lined mountains who wouldn’t be impressed. Places worthy of a visit are the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, Cades Cove and Dollywood. Gatlinburg, as we found out is a hype of activity in the fall. People soaking up the nightlife and enjoying days filled with adventure. Walking along the streets at night taking in the sights and smells were awesome. For those that like some moonshine this is the place for you 😊.

1. Peyto Lake Alberta Canada

my top 10 destinations carolyn peyto lake platform travel is sweet

Peyto Lake From Platform

Not many things in my life can I say have taken my breath away. Firstly, the night I met my wife. Secondly, the day our son was born. Thirdly, the first sight of Peyto Lake. I can’t fathom how beautiful some areas of this world are. God in his wisdom has created scenery I believe only heaven could match. While the slight hike from the car park to the viewing platform was a tad taxing. The ultimate payoff was the epic sight of this magnificent blue lake formed from accumulated glacier silt. With stunning vistas from the viewing platform permanently imprinted on my mind. If you have more time it would be incredible to hike around the lake to get a different composition of the lake. I have since found out there is an upper viewing platform, which we will go to on our next visit to Peyto Lake.

Carolyn Admiring Peyto Lake

Check out our full post on Peyto Lake here. My number 1 of my top 10 destinations will be hard to top, but as we continue to travel we hope to find places that will top this. If you are heading to Canada and plan on doing the Icefields Parkway make sure you add Peyto Lake to your visit list. You will not be disappointed 😊.

Top 10 Destinations Part 1

Top 10 Destinations Part 1

Top 10 Destinations Part 1

It’s been fifteen years of travelling since we caught “The Travel Bug”. Countless kilometres travelled via planes, trains, buses, cars, ships, ferries and good old fashion foot power. For this reason, I have put together my top 10 destinations to date. Having seen a plethora of incredible destinations it will be hard to narrow it down to just 10. However, a few stand out ahead of the pack. We have travelled to four continents and 17 countries. So, the diversity of cultures, scenery and foods has been wide. In contrast, some locations we have visited we have been glad to move on from. Overall, this world has stunning vistas, fantastic people and tasty cuisine. So, my top 10 destinations incorporate one or more of these qualities.

Let’s Get Started!!!

My Top 10 Destinations, starting at number 10

10. Great Wall of China

top 10 destinations great wall of china outlook travel is sweet

View Across To The Wall

One of the New 7 Wonders of the World “The Great Wall of China” is a marvel to the architectural brilliance of the Chinese builders. The wall was built as a fortification system to protect the northern borders of Chinese States against several nomadic groups. Several walls were being constructed as early as the 7th century BC. Due to the wall being built in different sections, successive rulers and dynasties have joined and maintained selective sections of the wall. The most well-known of the current wall was built by the Ming Dynasty. During our visit to the Great Wall back in 2014 we had the pleasure of viewing this amazing structure at Juyongguan. Situated approximately 65 kilometres north west of Beijing. Lucky for us we were on a bus tour as the traffic was horrendous on this day.

top 10 destinations great wall of china carolyn travel is sweet

Carolyn Contemplating The Climb

The wall itself was amazing to see. I had heard about it throughout my life and it was exciting to finally see it in person. Having been allotted a certain amount of time we started our ascent of a section of the wall. The day was warmish and the climb was very physical and demanded caution. The steps were very irregular in shape and height, so it took a toll on my old legs and tested my lung function. However, after navigating several sections of this marvel the view was remarkable. Taking in the construction of the wall was fascinating and the sheer size mind blowing. Standing before us was the descend, ironically turned out to be harder than the ascent. My knees and ankles felt every step. Overall, it was worth the pain, a very enjoyable visit.

9. Madrid Spain

top 10 destinations madrid skyline travel is sweet

Madrid Skyline Panorama

Madrid lies on the river Manzanares, and is the capital of Spain and is situated roughly in the middle of the country. Surprisingly, it is the third largest city in the Europe Union behind London and Berlin. It has a population in the city of approximately 3.3 million. Founded in the 9th century, it houses landmarks such as the Royal Palace of Madrid, the Royal Theatre and Casa de Campo to name a few. Temperatures during our visit were fairly cool, needing to rug up because of the chilly wind and rain. However, this didn’t detract from our amazing experience in Madrid. While, we were unsure of what Madrid had in store for us it blew us away with its beauty and charm. Our accommodation was located approximately 14 kilometres north east of Madrid at Hotel NH Madrid Barajas Airport.

top 10 destinations city streets madrid travel is sweet

City Streets Madrid

What impressed us straight away was the metro service, it made navigating around Madrid very easy and affordable. Reaching street level from the metro we are greeted by lovely architecturally designed buildings, a vibrant feel even though it was Good Friday with less people in the city. Strolling through the city street overlooked by small balconies certainly felt like we had travelled back in time. As we walked through century old Puerta de Sol and Plaza Mayor I picture what it would have been like 200 years ago. Other notable sights were the Royal Palace, Catedral de la Almudena, Templo de Debod and Casa de Campo was one of the highlights. Overall, Madrid has far exceeded my expectations and delivered, in bucket loads and is worthy of making number 9 on my top 10 destinations.

8. Niagara Falls Niagara USA

top 10 destinations horseshoe falls travel is sweet

Horseshoe Falls

When one thinks of waterfalls, Niagara Falls would be one of the first mentioned if not the first. Located on the US Canadian Border in the states of Ontario and New York. Niagara Falls is fed by the Niagara River that drains Lake Erie. It is comprised of three waterfalls. Horseshoe Falls is the largest followed by the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls are about 57 metres high and roughly 790 metres wide. While the falls have come close to being completely frozen in the last 100 odd years, it has only happened once in 1848.

Annie Edson Taylor was the first person to go over the falls in a barrel in 1901 surviving the fall. Niagara Falls was once regarded as the honeymoon capital of the world. I can see why as it is majestic and beautiful.

top 10 destinations american falls travel is sweet

American Falls

Our first experience of the falls came via the epic sound we hear as we head towards the river. We knew we were in for something spectacular. The thundering of rushing water grew louder the closer we came to the falls where it turned into a roar. To say my breath was taken away is an understatement, at the sight of Horseshoe Falls. Then to see the three falls together was just superb a dream come true. Great locations to view the different angles of the falls are the observation tower, Rainbow Bridge, Goat Island and the Welcome Centre on the Canadian side. However, the crème de la crème was taking The Maid of the Mist cruise. This is a must when visiting Niagara Falls as you get to experience the full force of the water falling over the falls.

7. Athabasca Falls Alberta Canada

top 10 destinations athabasca river travel is sweet

Athabasca River Panorama

To date this would have to be my favourite waterfall I have been lucky enough to see. Having heard about this waterfall many times I was eager to finally see it. My top 10 destinations were always going to contain Athabasca Falls, just where it placed was the ultimate question. When you get goose bumps and the hair on the back of your neck stand up you know that you have been touched. Arriving in the car park we head towards the falls where you are greeted by the fast flowing turquoise coloured Athabasca River with a backdrop of Mount Kerkeslin. The falls are stunning, as the river funnels the water into the narrow gorge creating an incredible force. Together, with the power of the water moving through the gorge the noise generated is remarkable. One that will not be forgotten.

top 10 destinations athabasca falls travel is sweet

Athabasca Falls

Athabasca Falls is located in Alberta Canada approximately 30 kilometres south of Jasper. It sits within the Jasper National Park just off the Icefields Parkway. Entrance into the national park cost us $116 CAD but that will vary on how you enter into the park. Full entrance fees can be found here. The drive from Jasper is scenic and leisurely with the chance to see some wildlife. We saw a black bear on the way back to Jasper playing on the side of the road. Always remember any animals you see are wild so don’t approach them and stay at a safe distant. Athabasca Falls is only one of the amazing sights that can be viewed on the Icefields Parkway. Make sure to add this to your bucket list, you won’t be disappointed. A worthy inclusion at number 7 on my top 10 destinations.

6. Montreux Switzerland

top 10 destinations montreux christmas markets travel is sweet

Montreux Christmas Markets

When one mentions the Swiss Alps, it conjures up pictures of massive snow-capped mountains surround by quaint villages. Well, Montreux Switzerland definitely fits into that description. A picturesque lake side village surrounded by white peaked mountains. Walking through the Christmas markets along the foreshore of Lake Geneva has been one of the highlights of our time in Switzerland. The sounds of Christmas carols floating in the air. Wonderful aromas of freshly cooked food tantalising one’s olfactory senses and the joy on peoples faces as you stroll pass them on the promenade. It truly reminds me that Christmas time is here. Looking out across Lake Geneva you get mesmerised by the scenery. On one side the French Alps on the other the Swiss Alps, truly delightful. In the distance Chillon Castle can be seen perched along the lakeside. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the time to visit.

top 10 destinations freddy mercury travel is sweet

Freddy Mercury Statue

Montreux is also the point from which you can catch the cog train up to the top of Rochers de Naye which is well worth the trip. For Queen fans there is a museum and a statue of Freddy Mercury along the boardwalk. Montreux sits on Lake Geneva’s north shore at the eastern end. We arrived via train from Geneva which took about 1 ½ hours and was a lovely relaxing ride. Montreux is 396 metres above sea level and has a population of approximately 26000. One interesting fact I didn’t know until we arrived in Switzerland is there is no Swiss language. They commonly use the language of the closest country. However, we did find many Swiss spoke multiple languages. Montreux will be remembered with fondness and is well established in my top 10 destinations.

My Top 10 Destinations Continues

Having completed numbers 10 through to 6 of my Top 10 Destinations take a moment to enjoy some extra pictures from these wonderful places. Coming soon Top 10 Destinations Part 2, countdown my top 5.

Travel Bug

Travel Bug

Travel Bug

We have all heard of it, but not all, have been bitten by it. So, my question to you today, which one are you? Michael Palin said, “Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life”. Such a fitting quote for those bitten. I still remember the time when I became infected from that innocuous bite. The year was 2004 and we had just arrived in the “Big Apple”. As we walked down 7th Ave I felt that small but intense bite. Never seeking a cure, still, till this day I feel the sweet intoxication coursing through my veins. How could you not seek the antidote you may ask? My response would be, “I DON’T WANT TO BE CURED”. Our Lord has created an amazing world, one which I am eager to explore.

travel bug lake louise travel is sweet

So how can you tell you have the Travel Bug? Here are a few.

  1. Ads about specials to your favourite destinations. Your ears prick up when you hear the words “special, and save now” to travel spots.
  2. Your planning your next trip. This is a dead set give away that you have the travel bug when you are planning your next trip before finishing the one you are on.
  3. Your heart skips a beat at the mention of travel.
  4. The dread of the last day of your trip. Do you hate the thought of your last day of a trip and wishing it was the first day again?
  5. The thrill of watching planes take-off. You can sit and watch planes take-off dreaming of where they are going?
  6. Love hearing other people’s travel stories. Love to listen, as friends and family recount their travel stories.

Travel Bug Adventures

Carolyn and I were bitten about the same time and wow what a journey we have had since then. Countless days yearning for our next overseas trip. Waiting for the day we could book the airfares, going online and getting our visas, booking our first night’s accommodations. I’m feel the tingling sensations now as I am typing. I think I was bitten so hard I got double the travel bug 😊. Having had incredible road trip adventures, seeing mind-blowing scenery and meeting fantastic people the travel bug has certainly been a welcome bite. As I grow older, I look back on the road we have travelled. Do I wish we had changed to a different route early? For Sure!!! Was that possible? Probably not. Steve Jobs said, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life”. God first!! Remove banks, debt and stress. Done 😊.

travel bug sinopah mountain travel is sweet

Having just booked our next flights the itch has been scratched for a while but the tingling sensation resides just below the skin. “Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta. How true!!!  The stories we have are numerous only limited by the people wishing to listen 😊. Augustine of Hippo said,“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. What an epic quote. So, as the travel bug floats around my consciousness our motto rings true,“TRAVEL IS SWEET – Dream It, Experience It, Treasure It”.

We would love to hear if you have the travel bug and some of your amazing stories. So please, write to us about your adventures and we will display them on our website. Submit your stories at Become a Contributor

Mentorship Academy

Mentorship Academy

Mentorship Academy

Twelve months ago, I resigned from my job of nearly seven years. Several emotions welled within my being. Joy, as I had become disillusioned with my career, and travel was at the forefront of my thoughts. However, mingled in was a sense of sorrow as I was leaving a great boss who had become a good friend. House sitting had now become my main focus and how we could achieve this without my income and only Carolyn’s reduced income to rely on. How could I bring in money? Our website was to be my option of choice. Creating income was going to be a challenge, but one I believed I could do. Several ideas have come and gone, but one has always hovered in the background. The “Mentorship Academy” a program that we could pass on our knowledge we have acquired over our year of house and pet sitting.

mentorship academy travel is sweet

The “Mentorship Academy” has morphed from several different concepts to what is now my first completed project ready to roll out. Will it be successful, able to deliver results, capture a market that will provide strong growth. Only time will tell. Having spent countless hours on its structure and how it will be delivered the time is near when I will roll it out into the marketplace. Fearful? HELL YES!! Excited? Definitely!! When you create something new like the Mentorship Academy you believe it will succeed. The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today” Franklin D. Roosevelt. Doubts for sure. However, these will not limit what I can achieve. Albert Schweitzer said “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

Mentorship Academy is Ready for Launch

Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” So, I have been dreaming about this and working towards it for a year now. Hence, the time has come to realise a dream and launch it. Thus, if you are looking to venture into the world of House and Pet Sitting or know someone that is considering it. Then the Mentorship Academy is for you.

As I close this post, I’ll leave you with one more quote from Chris Grosser “Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.”

Round the World Airfares

Round the World Airfares

Round the World Airfares

According to Travelonline in 2016 “Australian’s spent an average of AU$15,000 on travel each year”. So how much do you spend? In fact, I believe most Aussies realise that we pay a premium for travel compared to the rest of the world, due to the distances. Consequently, travel costs are the largest expense we have, in particular airfares. Round the world airfares used to cost an arm and a leg. But these days, if you search you can find some really amazing around the world airfares. Having now returned to Australia after our first stint of international house and pet sitting, we now embark on organising our next instalment. Being on a limited budget, airfare costs inevitably have the final say on where we head. So what is the answer? Obviously, find cheaper affordable airfares. With this in mind, the search to find the holy grail of airfares was on.

What did we find! Enter Airfare Geeks!! More to the point Mark Starr. Starr by name star by performance. Having explained what we required Mark set about finding the best solution that accommodated all our needs. It must be remembered we had spent many hours searching unable to come up with a suitable answer, or more to the point, one that fit our budget.

Mark came back with a great itinerary that covered all our requirements, but with an amazing price and to top it off it was in business class. WOW!!!  We were stunned by the price he gave us. It was not much more than we could get, however, our price was economy. Round the world airfares in business class with more flights included for an incredible price. How could we not jump onto this brilliant opportunity!

Round the World Airfares by Airfare Geeks

However, we had to check that Airfare Geeks were legitimate before handing across our money. We found no red flags. Although, we had not used Airfare Geeks or known anyone that had, after all our research and phone calls, we came to the conclusion that they were a legitimate business and went ahead with payment. Though we were a tad nervous, that all disappeared as we proceeded through customs and into the business lounge. Boarding tickets in hand, fears gone, time to relax and soak up the business class experience.

Having completed seven flights with our round the world airfares we can now unequivocally trust Airfare Geeks. So pleased have we been, with Mark Starr and Airfare Geeks we have just booked our second round the world airfare with them. In fact, we are working on our third itinerary with them for 2020. Overall, our dealings with Mark Starr and Airfare Geeks has been of the highest quality. We have no hesitation recommending them to anyone wishing to purchase round the world airfares.
