Hey everyone,
I absolutely love to travel and experience new places so I am thinking it might be nice to get some sort of a job where I get to just that... Does anyone have any suggestions?

What about becoming a sales rep, Libertas?

Just kidding. I think you could be a bit more specific about the travel-work combination that would be feasible for you. Any ideas?

work in IT...become good at what you do and one can operate on 6 month contracts!...ive done the working for an investment bank in sydney on a $700 a day rate! there is also work for me in singapore, nz and usa!

of course you need a working holiday visa / business visa to work in any country if you are not from that actual country itself.

Look up freight-forwarding. Imports and export. you only really need a bit of admin experience.

I work in IT as well and I get to live in different countries for months to years at a time. I'm currently in Port Macquarie Australia but have been to Broken Hill for work and Sydney (for work and pleasure) and Hawaii. It just depends on the project.

- Cooks and service staff in hotels, restaurants and bars
- medical personnel (as long as the other country recognises your degree)
- diplomatic service (IMO the coolest)
- freelance translator (you can work anywhere with internet access)
- professional writer (Hemingway anyone?)

I'm in IT consulting, which allows me to travel and keep a steady income. Most of my travel, however, is located in North America.

I think if I was going to do it all over again, I would probably think about joining the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, working in embassies overseas, probably as a management or consular affairs officer, though if Canada wanted to make me Embassador to Austria, I probably wouldn't say no.
