Lets face it, most of us dream of being in a careerthat give us lifelong memories and adventures, rather than water cooler talk and an unwelcoming cubicle.
At some point, though, we mayhave to putour dreams on hold and take that desk job were not totally in love with.
Were told its all part of growing up, and we have to decide between paying the bills, or exploring the globe and being broke AF.
However, thats not entirely the case at all. There are actually a lot of jobs out there that can keep your wanderlust genemore than satisfied.
If traveling is what your heart desiresat this stage in your life, here are seven jobs that wont make you give up your wanderlust in your 20s.
I have a friend who made a living out of writing about theme parks for travel sites, and Im extremely jealous of her.
As a theme park journalist, youre able to travel to all the new parks, ride every new ride, and sample new, fun food items before anyone else.

If you miss the days of having a carefree summer at camp filled with nonstop activities and smores late at night, then maybe you should be a camp director.

My family took a cruise to Alaska, and for one of the port excursionswe went on a ziplining course in the rainforest withAlaska Canopy Adventures. It wasdownright beautiful, and so much fun.
Our tour guides told us they work in Alaska during the summer months, lead tourists on ziplining adventures, and then go home for the rest of the year.
Youre basically paid to zipline and chat with different people from all over the world every day. Dont forget, this is all while youre casually hanging out in the treetops in a gorgeousrainforest.
This maysound unusual to some, but just think about it youre working on a cruise ship, living on the high seas, exploring different ports of call, and entertaining tourists all while making money.
If you love traveling (and cake), you could be a traveling wedding photographer.

If you want to travel, theres nothing better than being a flight attendant. Youre literally always going somewhere.
A few hours in the air working, and then youre in a new place you can explore before your next assignment. The best perk about being a flight attendant is, of course, the free flights.
