10 TRAVEL RELATED CAREERS

THIS HAPPENS TO BE A FUNNY STORY BECAUSE I WAS IN SCHOOL WHEN I FIRST DREW UP THIS LIST. WE WERE WATCHING A WEIRD SPANISH COMEDY ABOUT TRAVEL AND IT REALLY GOT MY BRAIN THINKING.
JUST KIDDING! IT REALLY WASN’T FUNNY.
JUST KEEPING YOU ON YOUR TOES!
SO, I’VE BEEN REALLY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT MY LIFE RECENTLY AND HOW TO INCORPORATE TRAVEL INTO MY CAREER.
IT’S STRESSFUL THINKING ABOUT YOUR FUTURE.
MY MOM WAS LESS THAN SATISFIED WHEN I BROUGHT UP THE IDEA OF SKIPPING COLLEGE AND TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD WITH ODD JOBS HERE AND THERE.
SHE WASN’T DISSATISFIED, SHE WAS PISSED.
SO IN ORDER FOR MY MOTHER TO NOT HATE ME I’VE COME UP WITH A LIST OF 10, TENTATIVE, OPTIONS FOR MY FUTURE. TRAVEL INCLUDED.
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?
10.) FLIGHT ATTENDANT
I MEAN IT’S A NATURAL THOUGHT. YOU WORK ON FLIGHTS TO DIFFERENT DESTINATIONS, MEET INTERESTING PEOPLE ON THE FLIGHT, AND POTENTIALLY GET VACATION TIME IN OTHER PLACES.
HERE’S THE THING THOUGH, I CAN SPEAK BASIC SPANISH BUT I AM IN NO WAY BILINGUAL AND I WOULD PROBABLY ONLY BE ABLE TO WORK ON DOMESTIC FLIGHTS.
SO TECHNICALLY, I COULDN’T TRAVEL THE WORLD.
9.) PEACE CORPS
SO, FOR A WHILE I REALLY LOOKED INTO THIS IDEA, AND BY LOOKED INTO I MEAN I STARTED AN APPLICATION.
BUT THEN I REALIZED YOU HAVE TO COMMIT TO WORK FOR 27 MONTHS.
I AM REALLY INDECISIVE, AND I DON’T THINK I COULD STAY IN ONE PLACE FOR THAT LONG WITHOUT GOING STIR-CRAZY.
8.) TOUR GUIDE
I AM KIND OF INTERESTED IN THIS ONE A LOT MORE THAN THE OTHERS. MORE ON THE STARTING MY OWN TOUR GUIDE COMPANY, SORT OF WAY.
I LOVE TRAVELING, LEARNING ABOUT CULTURE, AND HELPING OTHER PEOPLE LEARN, SO I THINK THIS WOULD BE A REALLY CREATIVE AND SECURE WAY TO TRAVEL THE WORLD.
PLUS, I WOULD GO TO COLLEGE AND GET A TOURISM/BUSINESS DEGREE, WHICH WOULD MAKE MY MOM HAPPY.
7.) TRAVEL BLOGGER
IMAGINE THAT, A TRAVEL BLOGGER INTRODUCING THE IDEA OF TRAVEL BLOGGING AS A CAREER.
HONESTLY, IF I COULD MAKE A LIVING OUT OF TRAVEL BLOGGING I WOULD. FOR NOW THOUGH, IT’S JUST A HOBBY.
ALTHOUGH SOMEDAY I MIGHT BE ABLE TO TRAVEL THE WORLD VIA MY TRAVEL BLOG!
6.) AU PAIR
THIS IS A REALLY GREAT IDEA FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE KIDS. I LIKE KIDS ENOUGH TO TOLERATE THEM, BUT SOMETIMES I GET ANNOYED, SO THIS WOULD BE A BAD IDEA, FOR ME.
PLUS, FROM WHAT I’VE READ ONLINE, AU PAIR’S DON’T REALLY GET PAID A LOT. I MEAN THEY GET ALL THEIR FOOD AND HOUSING TAKEN CARE OF, BUT IF I’M TRYING TO SAVE UP TO TRAVEL THE WORLD, I WOULD WANT A BETTER INCOME.
5.) MIGRANT WORKER
I ACTUALLY KNOW A GUY THAT WENT TO AUSTRALIA TO PICK FRUIT FOR A SUMMER. HE SAID IT WASN’T BAD, BUT PERSONALLY I DON’T THINK I COULD HANDLE IT.
I’M NOT VERY MOTIVATED WITH LABOR INTENSIVE THINGS.
4.) CRUISE SHIP WORKER
SO THIS COULD MEAN ANYTHING FROM HOUSEKEEPING, TO RESTAURANT STAFF, TO PERFORMERS, ETC.
I MET WITH THIS PERFORMER UP AT MY DANCE STUDIO, AND HE GOT A JOB ON BOARD OF QUANTUM SEA CRUISES. IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY HE GOT CAST IN MAMMA MIA!
I FOLLOW HIS INSTAGRAM AND HE ALWAYS POSTS THESE AWESOME PHOTOS OF HIS TRAVELS.
IT WOULD BE A UNIQUE WAY TO INCORPORATE TRAVEL INTO AN ACTING, OR DANCING CAREER.
3.) VOLUNTEERING
SOMEDAY I WANT TO JUST GO A YEAR AND VOLUNTEER ALL OF MY TIME, BUT I VIEW IT AS MORE OF A HOBBY AND NOT A CAREER CHOICE.
2.) DANCE INSTRUCTOR
OKAY THIS ONE IS A LITTLE BIT ABSTRACT. I WAS TRYING TO FINISH MY LIST AND FOR SOME REASON THIS ONE KEPT POPPING INTO MY HEAD.
I THINK DANCE IS A VERY CULTURAL ACTIVITY. I WOULD LIKE TO LEARN ABOUT DANCES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. ACTUALLY, SOMEDAY I WANT TO OPEN UP MY OWN STUDIO!
BUT IF I WAS TRAVELING THE WORLD, I BET OTHER PEOPLE WOULD MAYBE WANT TO LEARN THESE DANCES TOO!
SO I WAS THINKING THAT MAYBE THIS COULD BE A START-UP FOR MY DANCE STUDIO, AND THEN AFTER I HAVE TRAVELED A BIT AND EXPERIENCED TEACHING TO FELLOW TRAVELERS; I COULD SETTLE DOWN SOMEWHERE AND OPEN UP MY OWN STUDIO.
1.) BASICALLY ANY TYPE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP
I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT IF YOU WANT TO TRAVEL, YOU WILL FIND A WAY TO INCORPORATE IT INTO YOUR LIFESTYLE.
THE THING ABOUT ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS THAT WHEN YOU’RE YOUR OWN BOSS, YOU MAKE THE DECISIONS. IF YOU WANT TO GO TO INDONESIA FOR A MONTH, YOU CAN BECAUSE YOU RUN THE SHOW!
SO THERE ARE MY TOP 10 IDEAS ON HOW TO MAKE A CAREER OUT OF TRAVEL!
ANY SUGGESTIONS? LEAVE A COMMENT, I WOULD LOVE SOME MORE INSIGHT AND IDEAS!
