Do you know more about a particular country or region? Being a tour guide is a great opportunity to visit your favourite places and meet cool people from all over the world. Ideal for public butterflies. Remember, it can be stressful to be responsible for the well-being of most people. Leadership skills are required.

Offering tours can be done at any age, so it is one of the best travel activities for adults and teens alike. One of the most obvious activities to take you worldwide is a tour guide. What other work could bring the joy of exploring cities and getting paid for them? Wherever you want to go, popular tourist destinations always need friendly, experienced guides to guide tourists to the town.

If you are an outgoing and friendly person, this is probably one of the best ways to love your career in the world. Imagine living in a foreign country and displaying travellers who love to travel, just like you, around your new home. As long as you like to chat and love the new country or city you live in, you will definitely love the work of a tour guide.

Travel Blogger

Most of the people associate travel blogging with keeping online tourism blog updated or publishing your crazy adventures on your personal website, there is a real job option where you can earn good money and make a living. Creating a blog post is not an easy task and it takes a lot of time and patience. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person.

However, if you say you are a tourism blogger, most people do not take it seriously, but the fact is that a tourism blog can be a very profitable business. Through following ways you can earn as a travel blogger:

  • Selling Photos and Videos
  • Freelance Writing
  • Placing Ads on Blog
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Social Media

Volunteer Teacher

A great way to support good intentions, build academic knowledge, and (possibly) get free food and accommodation simultaneously. Volunteering to teach English is a very common method, but it is possible to teach other subjects.

It just so happens that English-speaking people have one of the most sought after skills in the world: speaking English. It may seem simple, but it is one of your best features. Teaching English in another country rewards you in the same way for your students and will allow you to travel the world with ease. In today’s world with huge demand in the education sector, there are many teaching jobs available online.

Event Manager

Typically, the event management company oversees a wide range of events, including, among others, corporate events, trade shows, trade fairs, product launches, TV / Movie awards, community events, sporting events and festivals. Organizing major events such as festivals and trade shows can be a great opportunity for tourists.

Meet potential retailers across the country and head to the event venue to help manage everything from setting up to segmentation. It may not be one of those jobs that require travelling. Still, it is definitely one of those jobs that allow you to travel, depending on the position/company you work for.

Photography & Film Travel

Suppose you are talented in the creative department and stay on track full time. In that case, a good idea is to take a camera, train yourself, improve your art, and sell your photos/videos online. Although it will require a small initial investment, the ability to do this full-time job is the best opportunity you can give up!

It is certainly not an easy way to earn a living, photojournalism or a career as a photographer of the world and travel. Still, it allows you to see some of the most beautiful and scary places in the world while you are at work. Without further ado, it is among the many luxurious activities that take you abroad. It does not mean that you need to be prepared and love to travel because these activities need to go.

Flight Attendant

This should be one of the most obvious activities for people who love to travel. Still, it is also one of the most accessible and exciting activities. Imagine a jet sitting worldwide, staying one or two nights in foreign cities, and then waking up and doing it all over again. You will have to love the people, but most airlines will only expect pre-service customer information and certification depending on the qualifications. Expect hours of madness and a crazy lifestyle, not as simple as it looks or sounds, but perfectly suited for tourists.

Being a flight attendant is one of the most popular jobs taking you around the world and the most accessible. Hours of operation are always flexible, and work is not always easy. Still, you will find visits to hundreds of cities around the world. Flight crews are often involved in overnight delivery. They may end up spending 1 to 3 days each week in different countries where the airline usually pays for hotel, transportation, and meals during these layoffs.

These are some best career options that pay you well and you can travel around the world with no extra effort and money. If you want to start earning and traveling, there are a lot of travel jobs out there.
