Getting paid to travel the world and explore foreign destinations and hot spots is probably everyone’s dream job. Who doesn’t want to escape their 9 to 5 job and live an adventurous life where no day is like the other? Being a travel blogger seems to be the perfect job, but if you scroll through those high-class images on Instagram, it becomes obvious very quickly that this lifestyle is not for everybody.
