Choose Forex Trading as Your Travel Job

The ideal for a traveler is to be able to work and make money on the go, don't you agree? A lot of travelers out there are already doing this whilst others are still working on how to do it. I've met a lot of travelers who are solely making money via traveling either by teaching a language, selling guidebooks, becoming Instagram influencers, etc. I started Forex Trading a few years ago, which proved to be a good way of investing and being able to do this anytime, from anywhere, just by using a laptop or your mobile device. Below I will go through explaining to you what is forex trading, share some tips, indicate to you what you need to start, and eventually recommend you my top trusted forex broker to trade with. You can work anywhere, anytime You just need a laptop or a smartphone What is Forex Trading and how does it work? Forex trading, also known as foreign exchange or FX trading, is the conversion of one currency into another. The foreign exchange market is where currencies are traded. Currencies are important because they allow us to purchase goods and services locally and across borders. International currencies need to be exchanged to conduct foreign trade and business. So here's the most simple example: if you are a traveler in the UK and want to travel to Europe, then you need to sell GBP and buy EUR. This is an exchange from your currency to the locally accepted currency at the currency exchange rate. Why Forex Trading can be one of the Best Travel Jobs? You can work anywhere, anytime: The top reason what it's the best travel job is that you can do it as you travel, anywhere, anytime, on the plane, on the train, daytime, midnight (apart from weekends when the markets are closed).  So you are on a 5-hour flight on a plane with wifi access? What else is best to do rather than invest your time trading? You are your own boss: Yes, you [...]

Casale Panayiotis: A luxury resort located in the mountains

"Discover village life in Cyprus through a luxury hotel resort and spa set into an ancient mountain range in this Mediterranean escape". Cyprus is full of surprises and hidden spots. One of these is Casale Panayiotis, a stylish boutique hotel in the heart of Kalopanayiotis Village. It's a place to relax and enjoy the village life. It combines a mixture of a luxury spa, elegant hotel rooms that remind you of Cypriot Village houses - modern and old. Nestled in the Marathasa Valley, on the slopes of Troodos Mountains, Casale Panayiotis is a complex of traditional houses which combine modern luxuries with traditional style. It features a spa center and elegant rooms overlooking the courtyard or the mountains. Rooms All rooms and suites used to be village homes which have been restored, retaining their original Cypriot character and touches. All rooms are heated and air-conditioned, provide a TV,  safe, minibar and kettle, whilst some other rooms have a sink and a mini cooker. Free toiletries, bathrobes, slippers and a hairdryer stock the bathroom. A few rooms have a fireplace (there is a 10 Euros extra charge for a basket of wood). We stayed at one of the 5 Studios, Agia Marina no.5 which is located in the Old neighborhood, near the Agia Marina church (the room was named after the church). Our room had a fireplace which made it extra cozy and warm during the winter nights that we stayed there. BOOK NOW Eating The food we had whilst staying in the village was delicious. Casale owns a few restaurants including Byzantino Restaurant, Byzantino Cafe, Loutraki, Pantheo and Kava. In order to reach most of these places and other eateries around the village, you need to walk, despite at which room you are staying at. We had food in Byzantino Restaurant which serves local dishes. We also visited Loutraki Grill restaurant set in a contemporary environment with amazing village views. But note that Loutraki has a very limited selection of dishes. I won't forget the exceptional breakfast. A variety of traditional Cypriot selections, including [...]

Things to do in Dubai for first time travellers

Dubai is the Middle East’s most popular city and the UAE’s second-largest emirate. Spanning over an area of 4115 square meters, its offerings are quite massive, making it overwhelming for visitors, especially first-timers, traveling to Dubai. So if you are trying to figure out what to include in your bucket list during your debut trip, this list of epic things to do in Dubai will help you to plan a failsafe holiday program. 1. Take to ‘At the Top’ at Burj Khalifa Burj Khalifa is the ultimate symbol of modern Dubai. Located in the glamorous Downtown Dubai, it is a structure of superlatives; from holding the title of the world’s tallest building to the world’s highest observation deck, it is a must-see on your first time Dubai visit. One of the best ways to see this building up-close is via booking ‘At the Top’ ticket. It allows you visit its observation deck on the 124th alone or both 124th and 148th levels (subject to your ticket choice.) Catch the most stunning views over the whole of Dubai’s cityscape as you stand here. Watch multimedia displays on Dubai’s history and enjoy one of the world’s fastest elevator rides as part of your Burj Khalifa visit. 2. Head to the Dubai Mall & Dubai Fountain Before or after your Burj Khalifa expedition, make your way to the Dubai Mall, being right next to this massive structure. Things to see and do here are so endless that you should set aside some generous amount of time to make the most of them.  Shop at its over 1200 outlets, dive into its dining scene with some 200 plus options, and drop into some of its top leisure and entertainment attractions. See over 33000 aquatic animals freely swimming within Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo and feel one of the region’s ultimate icy attractions at Dubai Ice Rink. Little ones must check out KidZania Dubai, while teens must definitely enter Ekart Zabeel and VR Park Dubai for that extra dose of adventure and amusement. Give a perfect wrap up to your Dubai [...]

Making Money with Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing involves the process of referring new clients and customers to other businesses, products, or services, through tracked links posted on websites, blog posts, social media, email campaigns, and other forms of ads. Being an affiliate is like being self-employed, you are not required to produce and stock items or ship them – you are only required to do marketing. Today I'm not going to give you detailed guidelines on setting affiliate marketing or its benefits etc - all this info can be found in thousands of articles online e.g. on BigCommerce, HubSpot, SmartBlogger, etc. I will write about my personal experience with affiliate marketing. Does Affiliate Marketing Work? I can personally answer that question from personal experience and tell you that, yes it does work. But it requires effort - marketing effort. It may be difficult and will take time to earn a steady income from affiliate marketing. Your best channel to start with is your website, have a blog posting interesting daily content, maintain social media profiles and reach the right audience by sharing interesting content. Depending on your website’s theme, you should be focusing more on promoting relevant products and services. If you have a website on Financials, then you should be recommending to your readers' relevant products and services. If you have a website about traveling then you should be promoting flights, hotels, and anything related to travel items. Your content should be based on a certain topic you are promoting. Don’t confuse your readers. Be consistent. My Affiliate Story I have both experienced affiliate marketing in the Travel and the Financial Industries. Having developed one website to share my travel experiences and another one to recommend Forex Brokers was just the start of my affiliate marketing journey. BUT, having two websites to maintain along with a full-time job can be very challenging when it comes to dedicating time for updating the website and promoting to reach the right audience and drive traffic to my websites. After 1 year of maintaining two websites, I decided that I didn’t have time to focus on both, and [...]

Exploring Troodos Mountains, Cyprus

Troodos is the largest mountain range in Cyprus, located in the center of the island. Its highest peak is Mount Olympus, also known as Chionistra, at 1,952 meters. Troodos is well known for its beautiful resorts, traditional Cypriot villages, scented forests, and for its cultural heritage such as historical monasteries and churches. So you've decided to explore the Troodos area and you are looking for some recommendations? Are you just visiting for the day or you are planning to stay somewhere? I would totally recommend you to spend a weekend in the Troodos area, by booking a hotel, an apartment, or even better a traditional holiday house. By staying there you will have more time to enjoy the surroundings, villages, scenery and the amazing food you can try at many local restaurants and taverns. Below I've listed some great things you should do and places to visit along with recommended places to enjoy a nice meal during your visit in the area. THINGS TO DO IN TROODOS AREA 1. Try some traditional Cypriot Sweets Considering that you are starting your journey from Limassol, Troodos Junction, on your way up to Troodos mountains, make your first stop at Katerinas Cyprus Sweets shop. An authenticate Sweet Shop. It's located on the main road and you'll see it on your left side. You will be amazed of what you'll find here. Anything you can imagine, they've made it a sweet. Fruits and vegetables made into jams and sweets. There's free tasting so make sure to taste some of the most 'strange sweets' you mostly have never tried before. 2.

Help Lebanon After Beirut Explosion

As the search for survivors continues after the Beirut Explosion, a number of groups worldwide have mobilized to help the thousands of people wounded by the blast, and the hundreds of thousands of others who have been made homeless. The enormous explosion that leveled parts of Beirut, Lebanon, on Tuesday killed at least 137 people and injured more than 4,000 others, overwhelming the authorities and damaging many hospitals and critical facilities. Rescue workers were struggling to treat the wounded of the blast, which was powerful enough to be felt 150 miles away here in Cyprus. As the desperate search for survivors continues, with teams scouring through rubble from homes, twisted metal from cars, broken windows, and other debris, groups around the world have moved to help. For those looking for ways to give support, here is a list of 10 organizations and initiatives operating in the country. Impact Lebanon, a nonprofit organization, has set up a crowdfunding campaign to help organizations on the ground, and is helping to share information about people still missing after the explosion. The group had raised over $3 million as of Wednesday and donated the first $100,000 to the Lebanese Red Cross. The Lebanese Red Cross is the main provider of ambulance services in Lebanon, and said it would dispatch every ambulance from North Lebanon, Bekaa and South Lebanon to Beirut to treat the wounded and help in search-and-rescue operations. You can make a one-time contribution here. The United Nations’ World Food Program provides food to people displaced or made homeless after the blast. Lebanon imports nearly 85 percent of its food, and the port of Beirut, the epicenter of the explosion, played a central role in that supply chain. With the port now severely damaged, food prices are likely to be beyond the reach of many. You can donate here. The nongovernmental organization Humanity and Inclusion has 100 workers in Lebanon, including physical therapists, psychologists and social workers. They are focusing on post-surgical therapy in Beirut following the explosion. You can make a single or monthly contribution here. UNICEF, the United Nations agency specializing in aid to children, is providing [...]
