How to Travel the World: Careers that Involve Traveling

Ever dream of traveling the world but worried about that one tiny thing (you know, money!)? The truth is, there are a large number of jobs that give you the flexibility to travel or work remotely. Of course there’s still a lot of work involved, but after work hours or during the weekend you will often find yourself in a different destination to explore. Today I’m excited to share a list of careers that involve traveling as well as information on how you can score a job as amazing as this! I’m excited to share stories of real life ladies who have careers that involve traveling as well as links with more information on the job and how you can do it as well!

This list of careers that involve traveling include fully remote jobs as well as jobs that involve a lot of travel for the job. While there is no easy path to the nomad life (par a few lucky individuals), there are multiple routes that will best fit your interests. My hope is that if you have the dream of traveling more, that these will serve as real resources that will help you achieve that dream.

Careers that Involve Traveling

Yacht Stewardess– If you are looking for a job that will take you all over the world whilst earning a good wage and are not afraid of hard work and long hours, then it could just be the job for you! The job can include everything from serving guests on board, cleaning and doing laundry, provisioning, flower arranging, and even tender driving, working on deck, or cooking for the crew. Whilst a background in hospitality is preferable, it is more about your attitude and personality that will help you land your first job as a yacht stewardess.
