(10) Flight attendant It may be the most obvious travel-related job, but it's also one of the most accessible: You don't need a specialized degree to become a flight attendant, and most major airlines only require prior customer service experience and a certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. The hours are frequently erratic, and the work isn't always easy, but you'll get a glimpse of hundreds of cities across the globe during your career. A bonus perk? Free or discounted flights for you and your family. (9) International aid worker If you want to travel for a living while making a real difference in people's lives, consider working for an international aid organization like USAID.

You'll need a background in a field like health, agriculture or education and a strong interest in social work, according to How Stuff Works. (8)Exploration geologist Exploration geologists help resource extraction companies identify the most profitable places from which to extract natural resources. Since extraction tends to happen in places that aren't very well-populated, exploration geologists get to travel to some of the most remote regions of the world, and can be away from home for months at a time.

Since individuals in these positions travel quite frequently for important client meetings, you'll have plenty of opportunities to see new places while you work. (2) Oceanographer If you love traveling by sea and have a passion for learning more about it, then there is probably no better career for you than that of an oceanographer.

Thanks for this 1stworld
welcome to 50+ and nice to see you posting
I don't know how practical some of these suggestions would be to our age group,where did you copy this from?.
10) Here is an example of the thoughts of someone who works in the industry for flight attendants...
" So here is my personal opinion as no official cut off age was ever released. And for me, this applies to a lot of other airlines and not just SIA… but then again, each individual company policy is different, depending on the route the company is heading towards. To me, If you want to be a cabin crew… I would say, your best bet is to go before 30 years old. That way, you can have buffer for promotion and to blend into the position. In the case that your contract was never renew, you still have a lot of options to venture into later on in your career."
9) it is quite a good idea but as is written you would already need to be in one of the fields mentioned.
8 ) Exploration geologist
4) seems to be missing
....would all need a person to do a University degree and although we all love to further our minds a student debt from anywhere from$10,000-$30,000 at our age close to, or already retired, would be rather daunting all to get free travel
1) sorry but those agencies seem rather creepy to me
and finally ..
6 & 7) now they look like the best bet especially if you have prior experience in hospitality
