Hey guys! I hope you are all doing great :) You know I’ve been travelling a lot during last years. Well, who has not? But when you go somewhere for a long term you either have to save some cash before the travel or find a way to earn it during your trip. I’ve heard from many people that you – digital artists, programmers, web-marketers and all other sorts of digital nomads are lucky to have this opportunity to work from almost any place you go.
But what a person without digital skills can do?
Well it should be something both people need and enjoy. I’m not going to make a list of art-related things a person can learn to try to make a living in South East Asia (I’m talking about this region by default ’cause I’ve spent a lot of time there and I’ve met different people with very different occupations).
So what is it?
Bartending. Seriously. I’m not a big fan of alcohol and spending time in bars but I’m sure a great bartender is worth a million. If you love parties it sounds almost like a perfect job :D. Your role becomes almost sacred for some people – you can either boost their experience or trash it! And if the ethical side of such career bothers you, you can work in some juice bar and bring it to a higher level of performance.
Where to study bartending?
When I went to Burning Island festival on Gili Air this year I’ve met I guy Laurent Winderickx – an extremely positive person – who runs a bartending school in Goa. The next training course starts November 1st and it’ll go on for 6 weeks. Training + accommodation will cost you €2000. It might look pricy at the first glance but if you do the math it’s €11,11 per hour. Plus you don’t have to worry about where to live and what to eat – everything is included. Maximum group size is only 8 persons so you can be sure you’ll get all the instructions and feedback.
I hope this information will be useful for someone and these people will have a great time studying bartending and later while traveling! By the way, check out Laurent’s psy-trance set at Burning Island 2016 ;)
