Want to travel the world? Here are some ideas



Not everyone can do this job. In fact there are many inconveniences such as the fact that you should have a good eyesight, height or simply be able to afford the price of the course, which are ruled out by many people in order to get the job. But without a doubt, if you manage to become a pilot, the travel benefits will be evident, besides the wages are quite good.

Travel agent

Being a travel agent does not give you the capacity of properly traveling from one place to another all of the time, but it is true that many travel agencies get trips, cruise ship tickets, nights at hotels and other perks for free and for their future promotion, which is the reason why you would have to test them yourself before offering them to customers. Pretty neat, huh? Who wouldn’t enjoy a free cruise trip?


Logically for this job you will need a degree and a good professional career, perhaps a little experience and some planning. More often than not they go through rough seasons of analysis and making conclusions out of data. However, you can rest assured that you yourself are going to have to obtain that data and, in order to do so, you will definitely need to travel to the appropriate place!

Translator and interpreter

In a globalized world like the one we live in, knowing several languages opens up the doors to the entire planet. No matter where we go, they will always need an interpreter or a translator. Always look for the opportunities that the place you’re in gives you to perform these tasks. Otherwise, you can always offer your services as a freelancer or over the internet. Here’s a little advice: government agencies are a good place to start looking for jobs in translation and interpreting. Other options are organizations, hospitals and large corporations.

Working at a hostel

It might not be a proper job and so you might not earn a lot of saving money, even though it is a very frequently used option by travelers from all over the world to get a place to sleep, the occasional breakfast and perhaps dinner. It’s just fine if we go from one side to another and we don’t have a lot of money to spend or if we’re going to spend some time at a place looking for another job and we don’t have enough money to pay for accommodation.

Import and export businesses

We may have arrived at a rather complicated and expensive job, particularly if we don’t know anything about this little world, even though when we travel to a place and we are there for a certain time, we may have thought “I could work pretty well in this place”, so that’s an option. Another one is to work for an already established company that does imports and exports, but in order to achieve that it is very likely that you will need a degree as well as the necessary knowledge of the languages that you’ll need to negotiate in said place. We’re just mentioning this as a possibility.


Yes, you might be thinking that volunteering is not a proper job. Well it actually is! And it allows you to travel, get to know places, people, cultures and languages. More often than not, you will get free accommodation, food and sometimes, if you have a little luck, you may be able to earn some money. One thing is true: you have to look for the correct organization in which you want to do your volunteering work, in order to be offered the best conditions and not lose money while attempting it.


A diplomat, you ask? Well, yes, they earn decent amounts of money, they get vacations, accommodation, tax-free goods, all-expenses-paid travels, good contracts… it’s up to you to take a stance on this matter.

House sitter

The name says it all. You will take care of the owner’s house while he or she is away. You may not get paid for it, but many people take advantage of this to get free accommodation. Of course it would be much better if you acquired some money, maybe by getting a job online or a part time job in the city you’re in.


There are many more jobs that allow you to travel, all you have to do is think a little and you might come up with some other ones that we haven’t listed here. One thing you should keep in mind is the fact that if you want to achieve a goal and you fight for it, you will most definitely get it. All you need is will, energy and a little initiative to do so.
