Free Airport WiFi codes

In my opinion, WiFi at airports should have been FREE. Why? Think of the airport taxes we pay when booking a ticket. Sometimes taxes are higher than the actual route ticket. Anil Polat is a travel blogger who has created and is constantly updating an interactive map that shows the Wi-Fi passwords of dozens of airports around the world. The app is called WiFox and is available on App Store, Google Play, and Amazon.

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, [...]
