Teaching: there are cities around the world that will hire for internships. If you can stay 6 months, then the pay will be better than an intern. Best paying places compared to cost of living include South Korea, China, and UAE. So you can safe more money there. Search online for different job opportunities. Websites offering ESL Teaching certifications will have job offer boards as well. Work Visa: If you are under 26, a lot of countries will easily provide you with a year work visas. These countries include New Zealand and Australia, but there are lots more. Places to find work in exchange for logging and sometimes meals: WOOFing (mostly farm work: wwoof.net) or Work Away (any job under the sun: www.workaway.info) If you are good at budgeting and depending on the country, you can travel around the world for $30 USD per day. Some countries that seem expensive, like Australia, actually have lots of ways to make traveling cheaper, like free accommodations and free transport. When I was in Australia, I only paid for food, few activities, and flights. In the end I only spent $24/day.

Ecuador what the first country I visited during my round the world trip. There are some pretty nice things there. If you exclude my time in Galapagos, I spent 10 days there, the same amount you want to. I went to Quito (the capital), Guayaquil (waterfront city), Banos (outdoor activities like white water rafting), and Cuenca (ruins). You can check out my experiences and what I saw there on my blog: https://nicoleglobetrot.com/new-blog/ . Because writing everything here will take a lot of time. :) tripadvisor is often a good place to get an idea what you can see when you go visit a place. almost 3 years ago
