Careers requiring travel?

Does anyone on here travel for their work? It's my dream to travel the world with my career, but I'm not sure what would be a good choice.

If you become an ambassador you will have to travel :) That's what I'm going to do, I want to be a politician who travels a lot. :D

An Ambassador is a diplomat, not a politician.

"Diplomats are the oldest form of any of the foreign policy institutions of the state". :) Diplomat is kind of politician, as well as ambassador. They work on political interests of the country.

Yes, they work for the State and do their bidding like any other civil servant but they are unelected and do not have any say in the politics of the country other than following instructions and representing their country.

Politically representing their country is already politics. And ambassadors can say a lot about politics in the country. They have a high status.

I plan on doing travel nursing next year. I think learning Spanish would be super beneficial.

If you work on an airline or cruise ship your entire job would be travelling as its main thing. If you want something higher level then a governmental job, business job, or be an archaeologist. There is probably a lot of other jobs.

As an academic you must do a lot of travelling to conferences, Summer/ Winter schools etc. It is a very important part of the job to gives talks on one's research to others, as well as to listen to others describe research that is going on in one's field, so that one is up to date.

Journalist, teacher, or travel blogger (writing or having a youtube channel) for example.

Also, you can try any job where remote work is possible, and just travel wherever you like while doing this whatever job (developer, translator, graphic artist etc.)

I think as a language teacher it's much easier than with other subjects. Also, you don't need to go through many years of university if you want to focus on teaching languages abroad.

I agree with most comments here. any job within the tourist industry, travel blogger, photographer, diplomat, some politics, etc. But also if you are a more science type then anything within mining requires languages like Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, French, Chinese, Mongolian, etc.
