The ultimate job has to be a job that pays you to go to all of the exotic places that other people can’t even afford to visit. I’m thinking something along the lines of Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs, or Bear Grylls from Man vs. Wild. Both of these guys get paid to travel around the world, seeing and doing things that the rest of us can only dream of. Of course, I wouldn’t say that either of these jobs are particularly easy, but if it’s easy you want, look no further than correspondent for a travel show. How awesome would it be to go to a different unique place every week, and get paid for it.
With the direction my life is heading right now it’s looking likely that I’ll be a computer programmer. If I want to go to the Moab Desert, Rocky Mountains, or an uninhabited island in the middle of the Pacific, I’ll have to pay my own way, and it won’t be cheap. I wonder if there’s some way to create a hybrid programming/travel show. “Coding Around The World” or something.
