For those who have been bitten by the travel bug, there is a constant urge to travel the globe, learn about different cultures, and create as many unique experiences as possible. The problem is that most people also need to work for a living, which can prevent how often they can get away. So, what if there was a way to travel and work at the same time? That’s exactly what these three jobs make possible, giving you some great ideas to work with.


One of the most common jobs people can do that allows them to travel is to be a writer or blogger. As long as you have a reliable internet connection and a computer, you can essentially write from anywhere in the world. This opens up a world of possibilities. 

Because this type of job is so independent, you will need to have excellent time management skills. Chances are you will be working within tight deadlines, so you can’t allow yourself to be distracted and miss those dates. It can also take a lot of work and time to build up a steady portfolio of clients or to establish a blog that attracts visitors and then advertisers.

If you’re wondering what goes into creating a “perfect” blog, try doing some research online, looking at both the successful blogs and those that get very little interest.

Travel Nurse

Are you a nurse who is currently working here in the country? Did you know you may have exactly the skills, knowledge and experience that will allow you to travel around the country while keeping your job? Obtaining your travel nurse license means you can take temporary nursing positions in other states, allowing you to pick and choose where you live at what time of year. 

And it’s not just here at home, as you may also be able to work as a travel nurse internationally, thereby opening up your scope of potential destinations. Generally speaking, as a travel nurse, you will have a contract that sets out the specific length of time you will work in that location. It can be days, weeks, months or even years.

This can be the perfect job for nurses who can learn fast, be flexible and love being thrust into new environments.

Virtual Assistant

If you have excellent organizational and communication skills, then you could be a highly successful virtual assistant. Virtual assistants perform an array of administrative services for a company or individual. They are administrative assistants, just in a remote capacity. You may be making appointments, making phone calls, answering emails and more.

While this job can be done from any location, don’t forget you’ll need to be available during your employer’s work hours, so if you are in a different time zone, this can be an issue.

As you can see from these three jobs, it’s possible to work while traveling. This is just a small look at the many opportunities that exist. It just takes a creative approach that opens your mind to different types of jobs.
