Travel writers seem to have dream jobs — they travel the world and many will get VIP treatment in hopes of a glowing review.
A couple of caveats: Getting a travel writing job is tough and you may need some good clips to start with. Start writing for free or on other topics to see where it'll lead you. While you're establishing yourself, your pay may not be consistent or even enough.
You could also start a travel blog to build up your clips and your rep in the industry.
