Travelling is more than a hobby. It is a way of life that can completely transform you and your expectations. For a lot of people, travel plans are the kind of things we plan for a summer holiday – at least, in any standard and non-pandemic situations.
To be able to travel long-term, and to get paid to do so, would be the dream, right?
