Writing, travelling and how to live off of it.

How many people here are currently travel writing as a way to make income while travelling? Have you found this to be relatively easy work to find (in Asia, in particular)? If so, how did you go about landing a job?

I, personally have a Journalism background and have worked in both freelance/newsroom set-ups and for a magazine (as a writer/editor). I'm currently teaching English in Asia.

My question is, what are my chances of finding p/t travel writing work via the net?

p.s.
I'd also be interested in hearing from people who have discovered other writing-related ways of generating income (via the net) during their travels.

Try this website. Every week they post new paying market and freelance writing jobs. You never know what will pop up, and the publications that are looking for writers (and more) are so broad that you're bound to eventually find some good contacts or jobs that are perfect for you.

... and what a coincidence. the newest edition just arrived in my inbox with the header 'International Markets for Writers.'

Here's the direct link:
