Roadie

From audio mixing to lighting design, roadies accompany bands on tour and run the shows behind the scenes. It’s not a job for the faint of heart, with long nights on the road and lots of heavy lifting, but you get the best seat in the house.

Cargo isn’t the only thing that can cross oceans in this field. Buying indigenous crafts directly from local artists and shipping them to eager customers means you get to travel and shop for a living.

It’s an obvious choice for a reason. If you’re working at different branches of an international hotel chain, showing tourists around as a guide, or flying planes as a pilot, you’re bound to have some adventures of your own.
