  • Hi guys! Welcome back on my channel.

  • I'm Charlotte and in today's video (like the title might have told you),

  • I want to address something that several people have asked me before

  • And that is: How do you survive abroad when you're on a tight budget?

  • Like you might have known (or not…) I started my travels and living abroad when I just graduated

  • I didn't have a large amount of money, but of course I had to save up for my flight ticket and have some savings

  • just to be safe, you know. If it wouldn't work out and I wouldn't find a job abroad.

  • But once being abroad, I found out that there are several ways that you could survive

  • while spending almost no money

  • And I'm going to tell you more in this video!

  • How to live abroad on a tight budget

  • The first thing on my list is the one that I experienced for myself

  • And that is: you can survive abroad while working in a hostel or guesthouse.

  • It's not really working for money, in my case at least

  • It was some kind of work exchange deal, where I would work for about 2 to 3 hours, 5 days a week

  • And in exchange I would get a bed in a 6-person room

  • I would also get some free rice and noodles every day

  • I thought it was a really good deal. Especially because I was young, I was a student

  • I meannot that I'm old now butYou know what I mean?

  • It was just such an amazing way when I did it in Seoul, to connect with people

  • I also had roommates, kind of in the same situation as me. They were also on a tight budget

  • We had great times together, going out in the middle of the night for karaoke or just having a nice meal

  • If you think about it, for only 2 to 3 hours of work a day, usually in the morning

  • The rest of the time you're completely free and you don't have to spend anything on accommodation

  • and if you have enough with rice and noodles, you're all set to go and to survive there as long as you want.

  • Another way for you to live abroad would be for you to look around for scholarships

  • Because I know that so many countries are eager to have foreign students studying at their universities

  • And they have so many programs set in place to offer a lot of benefits to international students

  • So it's really worth it. If you have a country in mind,

  • just check online if they have any interesting universities with scholarships

  • I know for Taiwan for example, I think they offer at least 2000 full scholarships every year.

  • It depends from country to country and university to university if they will also pay something for your accommodation

  • I went to Sweden for my Erasmus program. I remember they helped me out and gave me 300 euros every month to pay for my accommodation.

  • It was more expensive than that but stillthat's a huge help every month

  • If you have a country in mind where you want to go for a few years and if you want to learn something at the same time,

  • and get a degree, I really recommend you to look into their scholarships

  • My third point is a little bit related to the first one, but while I was living in Taiwan,

  • there was a hostel that reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to manage their whole social media

  • and do the advertising. They were pretty new, and nobody heard about them,

  • and they wanted someone to make videos about their place and things like that

  • In exchange I would get a small single room in their big house.

  • That was definitely interesting. I didn't do it because I already found my two awesome roommates

  • and I didn't want to leave that place. But if you have any kind of skills,

  • if you're very good in communication or in advertising or videomaking, or anything that you think can help a hostel,

  • you can definitely try to approach them and ask them if they want to do an exchange:

  • your work for their accommodation.

  • These were three points that I had personal experience with, but I saw some other possibilities from friends around me

  • One of those is for example becoming a nanny somewhere. If you like working with children,

  • this is a good way to immediately integrate a family and learn a lot about the culture, the language, everything

  • It could be very good if you quickly want to become part of the country and integrate well

  • Because you will literally live in the house with that family and take care of the children

  • I have heard mixed stories about it though, there are people who absolutely love it and who really like their families

  • But it depends from person to person, if you like children or not, and also if you find the right family or not

  • If you are someone who likes children, I think becoming a nanny could definitely be a good option

  • to live in a country without any expenses.

  • Something that I really considered doing for a while was doing a work exchange in a temple

  • There are so many temples in Asia and sometimes they need volunteers, so you would basically help them clean,

  • help them prepare the food, do some gardening and all kind of tasks around the temple

  • You will also participate in meditation and things like that, and in exchange they will offer you a roof and food

  • I think that's an amazing deal, if you need a break for a while, for a few months

  • You're tired of your life and you need to find yourself again

  • I think, doing this kind of temple work can really be healthy for you

  • The last thing on my little list is: You could volunteer on a farm.

  • I have heard several people I know do this and usually it would only be for a few weeks or a few months

  • That you would live on that farm with those people and they will feed you, give you a bed

  • And in exchange you will help them with some seasonal work

  • I think that if you're not scared of getting your hands dirty and of doing some physical work,

  • Working on a farm can also be an amazing experience abroad while you don't need to spend any money.

  • That was my list for today. I hope I didn't forget anything.

  • If you have any other ideas or if you have a genius tip of how to live abroad on a very small budget,

  • Feel free to share it with everyone in the comments!

  • I also was thinking about maybe making a future video about jobs that I did in foreign countries

  • while not speaking the local language

  • So let me know if you would like to hear about that too

  • I hope you just have a great day and see you very soon.

  • Bye bye!
