Now comes the fun stuff
Have you ever gone fosicking for gold or any valuable jewelry, like rings, gold chains or a variety of different denominations of coins?This will of course depend on where you travel to on your holidays.
You will need a metal detector
That's right, don't sound so surprised you didn't really think you would walk down the street and kick your toe on a nugget.Sorry that used to happen many years ago although the chances of doing that now would be very rare.If you are in the right area you could still find small nuggets with the detector and with the price of gold going up all the time it sure would help out.
Everyone loves to go down to the ocean or even lay on the sands beside the rivers.Well if you are shy you could wait until most people have gone home then take out your metal detector and survey the sandy beaches.
How many times have you heard of people losing their watch or rings in the sand?Well this is where you come in. You could even give the detector to the kids to use, not only will it keep them out of your hair for a while they may make more money than you.
If someone has lost something valuable they could offer a reward for it.Which could help pay part of your next holiday.
I hope this will give you a couple of things to think about when going on your next vacation. Whatever you choose to do whether it is sipping champagne beside the river or fossicking along a beach at sunset make sure you enjoy yourself while on holidays.
