There are many different benefits you can get from jobs, chance of promotion, good pension, etc. However one of the best benefits you can get is the opportunity to travel to new far flung places. So we have compiled a list of our top travelling professions, here are a few:
This is one of the more obvious travelling professions, those who work on planes; pilots and air stewards. Air stewards stack up millions of miles a year travelling right around the world ensuring their passengers are safe and satisfied. Lucky them!
Within all the Armed Forces, they travel around the world to support other military operations, to protect the human rights of citizens or to protect the safety of other countries by stopping terrorist activities. A tough job not only because of the difficult circumstances they are facing but also because they are far away from home and their families. We often hear of soldiers calling home via a free video chat with their family. Here are some beautiful examples of heart-warming video calls including a solider watching his wife give birth, just wonderful.
Journalists and news reporters travel round the world to keep us up-to-date with the lastest news. We see journalists in war stricken countries reporting to us of the lastest events going on. They often find themselves in dangerous and life-threatening situations. HETA, published by Investigative Journalists NGO, say that 66 journalists have been killed during 2011, see the full figures here.
Ok so maybe not an actual REAL job but with Mission Impossible coming out soon, I thought is was quite appropriate! With evil enemies popping up all the time, spies have to be ready to be sent all over the world to stop them from their evil plans. In Mission: Impossible, for example, the team are based in American but travel to Russia and Dubai in an effort to achieve their mission! Just think of the air miles they must tot up!
These are just a few of our top travelling professions, but there are so many more have a look at our full top 10.
