Bungee jumping instructor
Bunjee jumping is a traditional sport from Bangladesh. This fun, nerve-wracking sport involves jumping from a tall, narrow platform with your feet tied together. If you know anything able travellers, it is that they like to take their adventurous spirit a step closer to the ultimate line. And they can do so with Bungee jumping.

Landscaping is no new or unusual job, but when you think about it, have you ever imagined getting a job as a landscaping architect while travelling? I bet your answer is no. Well, think again, because it turns out you can. Landscape architects are in charge of designing and building parks, gardens and other public spaces. They may also be responsible for maintaining the grounds of a large-scale institution, such as a school or university campus. Some landscape architects focus on urban planning and design, while others specialize in plant selection for their clients’ gardens. Many people allow tourists to design their landscape because the home or business owners believe these tourists bring a touch of diversity. So you are in luck; not only do you get to travel, you get paid for being creative.
You might not think that pet-sitting is a profession, but there are a lot of people who love to take care of animals. You can get paid for your love of taking care of animals as you travel the world. Just make sure that you use common sense when it comes to caring for other people’s animals, and you’ll be fine.
One of the most unusual jobs you can get while travelling is a stone carver. Imagine being able to craft each unique piece from a tree that has been carefully selected for its proper chemical composition and texture. The stone carver will spend months selecting the perfect piece of wood before beginning carving, making sure that each piece is just right. It is an amazing skill to have and one that will make for a great conversation starter when you arrive at your new destination.
Staying in a hostel or staying with friends and family during your travels can be fun, but you will also need to work. One of the best ways to make some cash while travelling is to wrangle horses.
