Lead a youth group trip for an organization such as World Learning or Global Exchange. Or write for a travel guide.

teach english or something else (another language, music, farming, swimming, any specialized skill, etc)

babysit / nanny / au pair

if you know anyone that lives in the place you’re going, ask about setting you up with something or giving you a contact for the kind of work you want to do

decide on or design a career that’s based in or includes travel – as above, travel writing or photography (like for National Geographic), or journalism, anthropology, ethnomusicology, certain types of political work, performance of some kind, etc

decide on or design a career that can be done anywhere, perhaps otherwise a work-at-home job – get hired or get grants or whatever type of funding you get – and travel as you work – writing poetry, website work, an unlimited number of possibilities these days

independent journalism, travel to an even over it as you enjoy it, register for press pass, and publish online through video/audio podcasting and blogging. Through up Google adsense and enjoy the trip. When you establish yourself, the you can talk about traveling on other people’s dime.

Sign up for work on cruise ships. Good way of earing/traveling. I have been playing as show band musician on those and it is a good way of seeing the world. They are certainly looking for all sorts of employees, like waiters, cleaners, butlers, casino dealers, cruise staff, social hosts, dancing/ballroom couples, musicians, dancers, entertainers.

Become a consultant. Or a trainer. Either way, specialized skills and knowledge are needed all around the world, and most consulting companies are wired to send people all around the world.
