A drone can dream: Get paid to travel 14 countries in 1 year. Ok, as a nanny.

globebum

Whoa. Imagine yourself taking this job/lifetime-oppurtunity I just stumbled upon on Craigslist.  A family in Sunnyside, Queens wants to travel 14 countries in 12 months and need you to nanny their 2 year old and newborn.  They will be staying for 30 days in most countries and plan on volunteering in some of them.

These are the countries they are headed to:

1. Peru
2. Brazil
3. Sierra Leone
4. Ghana
5. South Africa
6. Israel
7. India
8. Bhutan
9. Myanmar
10. Thailand
11. Cambodia
12. Vietnam
13. Laos
14. Copenhagen (for 1 week)
15. If your home country is not on this list, we may be able to add it to the itinerary. Please ask us during the interview.

It doesn’t pay much ($10k), but I figure you can write a damn book after you get back and make up lost funds that way!   If you really want to imagine yourself sailing away from this humdrum drone of a life, pretend to fill out the application that asks you about how often you shower, if you like bugs, which recreational drugs you enjoy, how many times have you changed a diaper…

Full dreamy, free-spirited-lifestyle ad after the jump….
