Hello, I am trying to decide on a career, I also want to travel and see as much of the world as I can. Any advice on what type a career would give me enough time off to allow me to travel. Or any careers that involve travelling.
Thanks for any help.

Join the Navy. You travel while you work, and then have lots of leave where you can travel too!!

hey,

maybe try and get involved in an international corportation that has branches all over the world- it could make it easier to get transferred somewhere. you could try industries like mining where there's a chance to travel to offshore and overseas locations. as for vacations, teacher's get fairly good ones i think!! in the end, pick something that you really want to do- it will make life so much more enjoyable for you.

cheers,

How about becoming a dive instructor or white water rafting instructor? Fun work in nice locations :)

Adding to soliqa's reply on the multinational corporations - a good career for travel is either in IT or accounting, where you can then get a job at one of the "big five" accounting / IT consulting firms. You will spend your time travelling from client to client. Obviously, work is involved, but you do get some time off. This is what I do, and I have spent over 50% of my time outside of Canada for the past 6 years (mostly in the United States).

Also, sales people tend to travel alot.

You might also try a career in the foreign service - working at embassay's for your country around the world.

Of course, tour guide.

STA travel agencies are meant to be pretty great for travel....they encourage you to go all over the world so you can help others travel there.....sounds like a pretty sweet deal
