7 perfect jobs for those who love travelling

Wanderlust refers to those who love travelling.
They have the urge to see the world and all it has to offer, while meeting new people, exploring new cultures and seeing new things.
Ideally, we all would love to do this. But we can’t. We have to work.
But if there was a way to combine our passions for travelling with the necessity to work, there would be a lot more happy people in the world.

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” - Confucius

If you’re one of these people, then here’s a list of the perfect job choices that will allow you to work while living amidst your love of travelling.

  • TEFL teacher

These are in constant short supply. If your English language is of a good level and you can speak another language, travel to another country and help those across the world to improve their English skills.

  • Blogger

In the modern day, blogging is as popular as doctors and the health care service. And what’s more, you don’t need any qualifications or skills to become a blogger. Just let your mind and experiences tell the story.

This career speaks for itself. Travelling from country to country, exploring the world and meeting new people. (We hear the tips are pretty good, too!)

  • Bartender

One of the most versatile careers out there, you can be a bartender anywhere in the world. The skills are the same and cocktails are easy to pick up, too. We would suggest learning a few conversational phrases though to get you off the ground.

  • Au pair

One of the most rewarding jobs, becoming an au pair will give you a great foundation for travelling. In a lot of cases, you are provided with accommodation, you get to work with children, and on your off days you can explore the new and beautiful environment you are in.

Just like bartending, hospitality never goes out of style. Hotels are one of the world’s biggest incomes all over the world – plus you never know who you might meet there…

Take pictures of the world in all its glory be becoming a photographer. Get paid to travel and snap – most people do this anyway, so why not do it for a living?
