lot of movies, but for the films with bigger budgets, film publicists travel
to premieres as the film opens around globe.
You may not have the luxury of
much time in each city, but you could find yourself quickly stamping from
London to Australia in your passport.Cruise Ship Employee: From bartender to
housekeeper, plumber to engineer, cruise ships operate like small cities and
have to staff accordingly.
The bonus with working in this "city" is that it
stops at a lot of ports giving those with hearts overflowing with wanderlust
but wallets not as full a chance to explore faraway shores.
For those who love rock and long drives, hit the road and go on tour with a
band! (Photo: Alexey Kuzma/Stocksy)Band crew/roadie/tour manager: When a big
band goes on tour they can hit a city in different states, or sometimes
countries, six nights/week.

world, but if you don"t mind traveling light, living out of a suitcase, and a
life constantly hopping from one city to the next, a music career on the road
could strike the perfect chord with you and certainly ink up a lot of pages in
your passport.Teach English as a second language: You can get certified to
teach English as a second language online and many of the courses offer a
database of places you can teach – from France, Germany, and Italy to
Chile, Argentina, Thailand, Singapore and more.Volunteer: Billed as the
‘Peace Corp alternative," companies such as Manna Project provide
structured volunteer experiences for 3-13 months in places like Nigeria and
Ecuador for as little as $685/month in expenses.

food and shelter to visa, transportation and retreats.

activities like scuba diving, skiing, tennis, yoga, or golf and you can have
your pick of places you can go and seek employment around the globe –
and keep moving around as the locale goes in and out of peak season.Related:

Work at a company with international offices: PwC is a great example:
a company in 157 countries that focuses on audits and tax and consulting
services, and has a program that allows employees to work in one of their
international offices.
The job allows for regular paid visits back "home" and
opportunity to switch countries at various intervals.

Pardina/Stocksy)Photographer: File this one under obvious, but things become
obvious or cliché when they"re true.
We live in a day when you don"t need
to break the bank on a camera and a dark room to take a good photo.
Be in the
right place, know how to frame a photo and capture light, and almost anyone is
on equal footing to sell a good photo these days.
That"s not to say a class or
two in photography couldn"t help.
Do that, book a trip to a place you"d like
to go and see photographed and pitch it to a publication (maybe even World
traveling club Travel) and you could be well on your way to a career as a
photographer who monetizes their travel excursions.Journalist: When I
graduated college I could escape the disappointment of not taking time to
study abroad as I"d originally planned.
I was a freelance writer in NYC and
decided to try to make it a game to travel and get paid for it – and it
worked.
I"ve gone on "travel trips" to Tahiti and Hawaii and found cool things
to cover in places from Paris to Panama to cover the cost of the trips.
Find a
great angle a publication wouldn"t naturally have on their own, pitch it and
there"s a good chance they"ll pay you for it.
Alternately, try for a job at a
travel blog or magazine.Related: How to Make Money as a Travel Writer
Sports
Agent: As technology gets bigger, the sports world is getting smaller.
Agents
are learning about amazing athletes from Fiji to France via avenues like
Sporple, which allows athletes to submit applications to be noticed no matter
where in the globe they may be.
Once the athletes have garnered virtual
attention, the agents travel to scout and sign them – then often travel
with them once they"re signed! If you"re athletically inclined, you might be
able to play your way around the globe.

skier chasing winter around the globe or looking to train on diverse terrain,
a tennis player traveling for tournaments or part of an league that plays
internationally, life as an athlete is often an international
adventure.""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
