WORK-AND-TRAVEL

There once was a girl who dreamed of traveling the world and finding a mode of time travel while she was at it.

Once in awhile, this version of myself still enjoys making the occasional appearance. Perhaps it’s because I still fancy myself in love with Scotland; or perhaps it’s because it was what inspired my appetite for travel in the first place.

Either way, I enjoy the reunions whenever they occur.

Does this mean I’ve given up hopes of traveling the world?

Not even close.

Sure, the time travel factor may seem far-fetched, but I’m a hopeless optimist. Just because I may be a different version of the girl I was at fifteen—in love with the fairytale version of work and travel, as opposed to the reality—it only goes to show what an emerging career in the travel industry can teach you. And it is why I’d love to share some advice with you about how to jumpstart YOUR own career combining work and travel.

I’m not much different then any of you other travel-inspired individuals out there, looking to make a difference in the travel industry. I figure it’s this similarity with each other that will validate the tips I have for you. I’m not claiming that my advice is foolproof, and even though I am now working full-time for GoAbroad.com, there is still much for me to learn.

All I suggest is to let my personal experience inspire your own motivation. After all, aren’t you ready to turn your travel career dreams into a reality?

Travel Careers

You have a passion for travel. You also have to earn a living.

What if there was a way to combine both in a career in travel?

DIWYY is featuring women in the travel and hospitality industries who have found a way to do just that.

Read about them. Learn from them. Then go out and make your own niche in the travel industry.

Sydney Scheiter is an assistant city manager for Bus2alps, a travel company operating weekend trips for study abroad students in Europe (can’t get more niche than that!). I caught up with Sydney in between planning and guiding students around Europe. Lucky for us she had some time to answer a few questions.

If you’re a student who’s abroad this semester, or you know someone who is, feel free contact Sydney at Sydney@bus2alps.com with questions about Bus2alps, travel in general, or where to find the best penne alla vodka in Rome and the best tapas in Barcelona.
