Getting Paid to Travel the World, and It’s Not Being a Travel Blogger
There are a wide variety of jobs, from working on a cruise ship to becoming a wildlife photographer, that enable people to travel the world. George Keith / Flickr.com
Being a cruise ship bartender can be a lot of fun, and you would indeed see the world. But expect to work lots and lots of hours with few days off.
Excerpt from Huffington Post
Ahh, what the world would be if we lazy Americans were paid to vacation… But we’re not. Live as close to the dream as possible with one of these travel-heavy jobs.
Once you’ve mastered the camera, you might find a gig taking pictures of penguins playing in Antarctica or cheetahs prowling the African savannah. Your photos could be auctioned as art, sold to research organizations or –- the ultimate –- featured in National Geographic.
Pro: Watching from the brush as gentle giants roam the forest
Con: Poison ivy
Potential pay: $35,980 per year
Other possibilities include becoming a writer’s assistant, athletic scout, cruise ship bartender, celebrity au pair, location scout, and a wedding planner, among others.
