4 Jobs for Those Who Love to Travel

by Staff

Everyone loves to travel and there are few experiences more exhilarating than crossing borders into new countries, walking out of an airport to an assault on the senses or exploring new towns and cities. One of the unfortunate realities of having wanderlust is the need to find time and money to indulge itchy feet. There is a way around this eternal problem: finding a job that allows you to work and travel at the same time. Interested to hear more? Here are jobs that will pay you to do what you love.

Truck Driver

Desk jobs and the daily nine to five grinds are not for everyone but they sometimes seem like the only option. However, long-haul truck driving is a job that will satisfy the need for adventure while being able to provide a stable income. Be it taking in awe-inspiring landscapes as you drive across empty interstates, or parking your truck up in the evening before finding somewhere to eat, meeting people and taking in fresh surroundings, there will always be something new if you choose this career path. There is always a high demand for drivers and if you feel it is a job you would love, take a look at a guide on if long-haul trucking is right for you.

Travel Writer

If you have a passion for writing, you can use your skills to make money while you are on the road. Travel writing is much more than being able to write guides. When reading about somewhere new, the reader wants to be transported to the place they are reading about: the atmosphere, the food, the sounds, sights and smells. Everyone loves to travel and if you can’t travel, the next best thing is to read about the experiences of others. There are websites all over the internet that will pay for articles on your experiences, and it is also possible to set up your own website and gain money through advertising.

Travel Photographer

Ever looked at your photos and thought you could see that on the front of a travel magazine? Whether it is a perfect picture of cherry blossoms blooming in front of Osaka Castle or picturesque picnic spots in New Jersey, there are websites out there that will pay for your pictures. Some will pay a one-time fee, while others will pay each time the photo is used. Having good camera equipment and easy access to the internet is necessary, but it is a job that will give you the freedom to be wherever you want to be, while also being able to make money from the amazing memories you create.

Flight Attendant

If you have thought about the idea of being in a new country or city every weekend as part of your job while also being able to enjoy heavily discounted flights when you have time off, being a flight attendant is the ideal job. As you gain seniority within the role, you will also be able to gain flexibility in how you schedule your work and where you want to go. Few jobs offer the opportunity to be in so many different places in a short space of time.
