who here has worked abroad?
NOW the cool way to make money for those travelers who have entrepreneurial instincts and computer saavy and marketing skills is the internet with a variety of on-line small business incomes which allow them to make money, travel AND live overseas in developing nations. I met a 20 year old who knew academic life to pursue a college degree in UK wasn't for him so opened an eBay shop and did well. Now he's 24 and opening a bungee jumping gig in the Philippines.
