The Trading Travelers

 

Brittany and Charlie of The Trading Travelers sold all of their belongings in August 2013 to move to Thailand in search of financial freedom and a location independent lifestyle. Since then, they have been focusing on building affiliate websites while traveling SE Asia, Europe and recently New Zealand. I was intrigued by their stature as Amazon affiliates, so I asked them to share a bit more with us here. Read on to learn more about their lucrative business!

 

 

How long have you been living/working on the road, and where have you traveled to?

We left the States in August 2013 and moved to Thailand. For over two years, we based ourselves in Chiang Mai all while traveling SE Asia (Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau, Indonesia). As our affiliate income grew, it allowed us to start exploring outside of SE Asia. We spent the past summer in Europe for over two months traveling Germany, France, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, and Czech Republic. We spent the end of 2015 traveling in New Zealand for eight weeks.

 

Please describe what you do for income.

Our primary income is generated from multiple Amazon affiliates websites. We currently have about 15 websites, although the majority of our income comes primarily from our top eight websites.

Leif HarumWhen Leif Harum of Runaway Guide was 16 he ran away from home and explored the far reaches of Europe and the Middle East without a cent to his name. It was a journey that opened his eyes to the world and changed his life. Since that first trip, now over 10 years ago, Leif has visited over 80 countries around the world. He transformed from a beatnik backpacker able to survive on the smallest of budgets into an online entrepreneur purposefully creating a life that he chose to live. Here are the nuts and bolts of how he makes his finances work while living around the world.

 

How long have you been living/working on the road, and where have you traveled to?

I’ve been living a working on the road full-time since 2011 and have visited around 40 countries since then.

 

Please describe what you do for income.

In the beginning, I mainly survived off of sponsored posts on my main blog, The Runaway Guide. However, these only ever amounted to a few hundred dollars a month, and getting these deals was sporadic to say the least.

Over time, I created multiple websites and various streams of income, which together provide enough funds to not only travel, but travel in comfort.
