Some jobs that are paid to travel include:

Archaelogists (quite a boring life to get to be qualified to do that)
Pilot/Airline crew
Tour Guide (own a travel company and guide some of the tours)
Travel Writer
Foreign Correspondent
Yacht Crew (may be paid but most likely not by way of cash)
Film Location Scout - (can be from finding a perfect toilet for a scene in a movie to finding the perfect landscape for a scene like in Chronicles of Nardia).
Roadie for a rock band (BORING!!!!!)
Teacher of English as a Foreign Language
Cruise ship staff
CEO of an international company (usually on an enormous salary)
Own your own business and have branches in foreign countries
Work for a company like Lonely Planet
Travel photographer

That's about as far as my list goes

Hello Boreal

Sometimes people say, they work on the internet.
I am not exactly sure what they do, on the internet. But wouldnt that mean, that they can live, wherever they want?


:) Hey, work on the internet??? Sounds interesting. How do they do and what do they do?? I'm interesting on it!!

what about doing some artistic job, like drawing portrait on the street or playing some music on the street? i know it sounds like crazy but i see some travellers doing that here in Macau:)

how about being an English teacher, that is the easiest work in the world.

As long as you can show a TEFL you will be OK, for non-native speakers (even with a TEFL), it's a little bit harder.

Hi ristinw,
I'm no expert in it, but I do web developing, that is, i build websites. I figure with website codes being universal around the world, I can get a job anywhere (but it pays little).

But hey, I haven't travelled anywhere yet, so I don't know!

Other ways of working on the internet could be:
- starting your own online store
- sell advertising space on your website (if your website is popular)

that's all I know but I'm sure there are heaps of people that knows more!
