1. Chief World Explorer

How does the job title of Chief World Explorer sound to you? It’s got quite a nice ring to it, hasn’t it? If you like travelling and wouldn’t mind a salary of $100,000 to do it, then this could be the ideal position for you. The company looking for this special employee is a travel site and you can expect to be up against some stiff competition if you enter the job application process. It would be worth it though, as you would get paid a very tidy salary to travel the world and write about the experience.

2. Caretaker of Paradise Island

One job which has already been snapped up is one that involves being the caretaker of a paradise island in Australia. Brit Ben Southall got the gig by fighting off 35,000 other contenders. It sounded like the ideal job, but Ben admitted afterwards that it was blooming hard work. His career in tourism has taken off since then, but the hard work needed to look after an island and the fact he was bitten by a poisonous jellyfish, were a couple of the unfortunate hazards he didn’t expect in his dream job. Still, I’m guessing he would do it all over again if he got half the chance.
