Love Traveling? 6 Careers That Allow You to Travel the World

by KatarinaNovak on Jan 30, 2018 Australia 2217 Views

If you’re like most people that dream of travelling the world, you’ve found yourself in the position of having dreams that seemingly have no possible way to come true. You spend hours on the internet staring at picturesque landscapes of exotic places, trying to figure out how to both afford the vacations you’re dreaming of, and take the needed time off work. Why not find a job that allows you to see the world and make money at the same time? Here is a short list of careers that allow you to travel while working.

Travel Nurse

While this job requires you to become a nurse, it really is a very lucrative and safe way to make decent money while travelling the world. Most companies that employ travel nurses offer fantastic benefits packages, and you get more than just a few hours or days exploring a destination. With contracts that last several months or longer, you can get a chance to really immerse yourself in the local culture while earning money.

Flight Attendant

If you’ve got customer service skills and can handle a fast-paced environment, consider becoming a flight attendant. If you’re looking to play it safe, you can work for a domestic airline, which affords you the opportunity to visit nearly anywhere in your country. If you’re feeling more adventurous, look at airlines that service areas of the world you’re interested in visiting.

Cruise Worker

Cruise ships can be difficult environments to work in; you need to be prepared to be stuck at sea for months at a time, with only a small private space to call your own. However, if you’re the type of person that doesn’t need much space, working on a cruise ship can be a blast. You get to travel to exotic destinations and explore when you’re in port. One of the best parts is that although the pay isn’t great, most of your living expenses are included.

English Teacher

Like travel nursing, this is a career that gives you the opportunity to really get to know a local culture, as most contracts last several weeks or even months. You get to earn money by teaching English to locals, which means you’re having meaningful interactions with the culture daily. Working as an English teacher in a foreign country is a great way to supplement your income while travelling.

Travel Blogger

Whether you decide to keep and monetize your own blog, or if you decide to write and submit articles to paying websites, travel blogging is a good way to not only experience the world while traveling, but also to record your adventures and share them with the world. Renting out your home on AirBnb is a great way to supplement this income while you’re on the move as well.

Freelancer

If you have a skill that is primarily dependent on using a laptop, you can earn a good living and still keep doing what you love, and doing it from anywhere in the world with a decent internet connection. Much of today’s freelancing is done strictly on the web: there’s no office to maintain, and no face-to-face meetings with clients. As long as you can maintain your communication, and occasionally rearrange your schedule to have conference calls with clients on the other side of the world, you can earn a good living while on the go.

Before you embark on a career path that allows you to travel, see what you need to do about your current home before you leave. If you can supplement your income by renting out the space, or if you can eliminate the need for a permanent home by minimizing your lifestyle, your travel-based income will go much farther.
