Is there any better way to spend your time than travelling to new places, seeing the sights, and getting to know the local people?
Well, as amazing as travelling may be unless you’re made of money or own a money tree, it’s unlikely that you can do this as much as you would like to. People save for over a year, only to spend a week or two in their dream holiday destination, so you can’t spend months away visiting multiple cities or even countries, right? Actually, this isn’t necessarily true. There are plenty of careers that can make your travel dreams a little more realistic, and plenty more that you can take with you to other countries. Here are some of the best ones.
If you have knowledge about something, then why not share that knowledge with other people, and get paid at the same time. It doesn’t matter what you teach, whether it be science or dance, if you know what you’re talking about, and have the qualifications and certifications that you need, then you can apply for a job in another country. English is something that lots of foreign people want to learn, so if you can speak the local language, you can teach the locals how to speak yours.
- Flight Attendant
If you’re looking for a job that allows you to travel, then a flight attendant is probably the first thing that came into your mind. As a flight attendant, it is literally your job to travel to other countries, spend a few nights there, come home, and do it all over again. It’s not easy, and it’s an incredibly sought-after career, but is perfect if you don’t mind the craziness, and want to bag cheap flights for you and your family.

Blogging and vlogging are both things that can be done almost anywhere in the world, and could potentially earn you a lot of money. The only things you need are some great ideas and a computer (and a camera, if you wanted to be a vlogger). You can talk about whatever you want, but since you’re travelling anyway, why not discuss your trips? Becoming a successful blogger does require a lot of work, but if it is something you enjoy doing, it won’t feel like work.
You are going to find sick people in every corner of the world, so nurses are in high demand no matter where you go. This means that, if you wanted to travel, or even move to another country, you would be able to find work. You can find nursing jobs in the UK at Staffnurse.com, but a quite Google search will find you jobs everywhere and anywhere in the world.
- Cruise Ship Worker
Working on a cruise ship has similar benefits to working as a flight attendant, but you’ll be away for longer periods of time and will, obviously, be on a ship. Unfortunately, cruise ship jobs are highly sought after, like flight attendant jobs, but there is also a lot of them, so as long as you make yourself stand out, you should be able to bag yourself one.
People are constantly moving country in order to get their name and music noticed, so if you can sing or play an instrument, and enjoy travelling anyway, why not go for it? Busking is a great way to earn you some extra cash, but probably won’t cover all of your bills, so you will need to find another job too, just until you get your big break.
Where there are people, there are people that want to drink, so bartending is a great option for you. Bartending jobs are incredibly easy to come by, and require little to no experience, so as long as you have the relevant documents allowing you to work abroad and speak the language, it should be relatively easy for you to find a job in a bar.
- Travel Agent
Granted, this job doesn’t take you to exciting new places, but it does make it a little easier for you to get there when you’ve got some time off work. You will likely be invited on a free family trip or two, by airlines to promote themselves, and will also receive massive discounts when it comes to booking your own holiday.
If you’re rather talented with a camera, then why not take pictures of the amazing sights that you’re visiting, and sell them online. This could potentially be the start of an incredibly successful career for you and could lead you down many avenues, including wedding photography and marketing, so don’t waste your talent on Instagram; Make money from it.
- Au Pair
If you can speak the local language and love children, then perhaps becoming an au pair is for you. As an au pair, you will provide child care services for a family, like babysitting and helping the children with their homework. In return, you get to live with the family for free and receive a small salary on top. Your free time will be limited, but what better way can you experience the local culture than living with a local family?
You can write absolutely anywhere, which is why it’s such a good career option when you are always on the move and visiting new places. You can easily write a novel while travelling (as long as you’re a talented writer, of course), and then publish the E-book on Amazon. This will provide passive income while you’re on the move. It might not be big bucks, but every little helps.
Travelling is one of the best ways to spend your time, so don’t let lack of funds hold you back. There is always some way that you can make money, even in a foreign country, so get out there, explore, and enjoy yourself.
