travel writing, couriering, duty free camelling, tour guiding.

Becoming an air pilot, steward, business person or a millionaire (maybe by winning a lottery) would be a less common option :)

Quoting Brendan

A pilgrim...

I think they are obsessed not by travel.

Would religious convertion be necessary with each border crossing?

Get a job on a cruise ship/merchant navy/navy.

Be a pop star and do a big world tour every year, get paid loads of money, go where you want.

Freelance photographer, but you might end up having to go to trouble spots, no fun there.

My horoscope today says my passion for something (travel) will turn into a career so i hope someone comes up with some better ideas than me before the day is out.

You could be Elton John's make up artist.

Oh wait...no...he's not so much of a jet-setter these days...

Okay, Britney Spears then.

I'll admit to having auditioned for a travel program hosting stint. They allegedly picked someone funnier and prettier.

Yeah, as long as you didnt mind being on TV that would be a pretty cool job. Theres a travel presenter here in Ireland called Kathryn Thomas and I was reading an interview with her recently...she was saying how cool her job is and that she's been all over the world! She's only 24 or 25 or something. :)

get semi-professional video camera and make a short film about food and eating habits of travellers/backpackers. You got already part of the screenplay in 'The best and the most bizarre food around the world'.

Send video cassets (possible with voiceovers in 5 languages) to some cable/tv stations - you might get paid for it and commissioned for more work.
