But did you know you could actually make travelling a part of your profession? Here are 12 careers which let you earn and make a living while fulfilling your dream of travelling the world.

Social work involves a lot of field work. You need to visit places by yourself to make sure that the welfare work is being done properly. Volunteering for good NGOs may take you on international trips as well.
