5 Awesome Careers That Allow You To Travel The World

Some jobs are ideal for travel lovers, but are simply not reachable for many people. Pilots, flight crew, and sailors will naturally get to see the world, but there are other jobs that can take you to all corners of the world that you may not necessarily have associated with travel.

Going hand-in-hand with the journalist - someone has to hold the camera! While some cameramen will be on location permanently, others will travel with their roving reporters. Those who go into filming documentaries can find themselves situated in some rather remote locations, the likes of which the average traveller is unlikely to ever visit. The world truly opens up in front of the lens.

English Teacher

English is the most widely spoken language in the modern world -- as you will have undoubtedly noticed when travelling abroad -- with an estimated 750 million people worldwide speaking English as a secondary language. As a result of the widespread use, it requires many teachers all around the globe. Teaching the English language to both children and adults can allow for significant travel opportunities in many countries. This job is more of a permanent position than the others on the list, but you could also find a role that requires you to travel from school to school in a temporary capacity.
