Traveling the world and, at the same time, making money while traveling the planet is the dream of many. But it is not as complicated as you think. You just have to take a look at these 15 jobs and, if you have time, change professions. We guarantee that you will go around the world and see it with different eyes.

Here are the 15 best jobs to travel a lot.

Photographers are known for always capturing the best landscapes and most beautiful images, and not everyone travels. But if you have an eye for details and you know how to make your images known and sell them, you could easily make a living from photography while going around the world.

2. Archaeologist

Like Indiana Jones (albeit without the whip and with fewer problems), archaeologists scour the world in search of new discoveries, and this mission can take them to truly remote and beautiful places. What’s more incredible than exploring strange lands while discovering lost cultures and ancient sites?

3. Musician

Music is not easy to make a living, but if you do, you will have the opportunity to travel the world like no one before. Whether it’s on the bus that takes you on tour or by private plane from city to city, dedicating yourself to music has its travel advantages.

4. Leader of team on a tour

Musicians alone cannot handle the assembly of an entire show, so behind the scenes are those workers who make each tour magical. It might not be as glamorous a life as a rock star, but team managers (“roadies”) have all the traveling benefits of work … without having to perform in front of anyone.

5. Flight attendant or stewardess

Flight attendants (more popularly known as hostesses or stewardesses) spend their days in the air, but they also have the opportunity to explore new places when they have rest… And, of course, they travel for free. A perfect job if you want to travel a lot.

6. Google Street View car driver

To get this job let’s say you are going to have to meet someone influential, and it also has to happen that there is a vacancy, since driving a Google car to map new regions is not even advertised as a job. However, if you succeed, you can enjoy driving on the roads of the world while Google pays you. And you will see places that few have seen before.

7. Travel guide

Do you want to travel for free and also get paid to do it? Then become a travel guide! The only bad thing is that this job requires great organizational and sociability skills because you will have to move a large group of people from one place to another and, at the same time, get them to enjoy the trip (and bear their complaints if something does not make them like). Of course, if you like to travel, surely it compensates you a lot and you enjoy it like never before.

All you need is a computer, an Internet connection and your suitcase to do your work anywhere in the world. Imagine programming code on a beach in Thailand … As if this weren’t enough, programmers are often well paid wherever they go.

9. Sailor, captain or crew member

Everyone on board! Working on a cruise ship or on a private boat means a lot of work and effort, often having to deal with a sea much rougher than you would like … but it also means traveling a lot and everywhere. We will not deny that it has its attractions.

10. Hotel fitting room

One of the best jobs on the planet could very well be being a hotel “fitting room”. Travel the world enjoying all the comforts of hotels. It is somewhat difficult to get the position, but it sure is one of those jobs that you will never want to retire from.

15. Au Pair

Do you like children and do you like to travel? Then make yourself au pair. Yes, they will give you great responsibilities (and if you have bad luck they will try to take advantage of your good will) but it also has advantages such as living in a foreign country, learning a new language and perhaps some trips or excursions, even with children.
