A few years ago, shortly after my retirement, I stumbled across an online photography workshop and decided to give it a try. I learned a lot about photography from this course, but the breakthrough moment for me was when I learned how to use the video setting on my camera.
I've spent my life living overseas, teaching in international schools, and now that I'm retired, I want to travel even farther. I just need a little extra income to do it...and now I've found it. As I neared retirement age, I realized that I would have to find a way of making some extra money if I wanted to continue traveling and maintain my lifestyle. My pension, although adequate for a sedentary life, wasn't going to allow me much freedom. So I began looking for ways where I could earn a little extra money here or there, as I continued to travel. That research paid off when I discovered that I could take travel videos with my regular camera and sell them.
