Throughout high school and college, I loved watching the Travel Channel, (I mostly stream what I want to watch now, and rarely watch TV). I was probably 19 or 20 the first time I saw Samantha Brown’s travel show on TV. Passport to Europe, and Passport to Latin America, were the two shows that I adored the most. She would travel to various countries, visit landmarks, eat great food, mingle with locals, lodge in incredible hotels. I first learned of Patagonia from watching her show, and have wanted to go there ever since, (Patagonia is on my blog about my top 10 lesser known travel destinations).
If I were to pick a dream job, this would definitely be it! Who wouldn’t want a job where they can travel around the food, eat delicious food, and get paid? I’m also a lover of history, so I think it would be interesting to visit museums in each place visited. Yes, I am that nerd who visits museums when I travel. Knowing more about the history, and culture of a place, helps me to understand things more. I’m not one to travel, and not dive deeper into what a particular place is about.
I’m sure having a travel job like Samantha Brown did has its downsides. Constantly on the go, meeting deadlines, eating something that may make you sick while on the road, etc. Even still, it would be nice to try it, if even for a little while.
What would your dream job be?
