For a lot of us we travel to escape the drudgery and daily grind of our jobs, but imagine having a job that allows you to travel and make ends meet at the same time. People who have the travel bug often consider taking a job due to the fact that it allows you to combine a passion for travel with work. You may also take a job solely for the perks of travel that come with the job.
1. Flight Attendant
