I’ve often said the best way to become a paid travel writer is to find jobs that pay first and to write second.
Over on The Lost Girls website, they’ve put together a pretty great list of sites that are pay for your travel writing articles. This is a great place to start pitching.
You can find the list here: http://www.lostgirlsworld.com/2011/01/travel-freelancing/
Make sure to check the comments for even more sites that are willing to pay for travel writing.
