Wanderin' The Globe is seeking an outstanding individual to join our team of one as a Professional Full Time Co-Traveler currently based somewhere in Vietnam. However, in the near future, this will be location independent. Read: somewhere on Planet Earth.

Reporting directly to one's self, the Co-Traveler is responsible for managing their day to day operation waking up and living in the moment. That moment can be a wake up call of throwing a pillow at his/her co-worker's head (Davie Pocstar) and suggesting a cool place for breakfast. Or a quick run around the block, wherever that may be.

Breakfast (or lunch) can look like this:

Lunch or dinner can definitely look like this:

  • Is conscientious and courteous to the Co-Traveler and any travelers that may join them at any given moment.

Skills and Qualifications
  • Some, but not a lot of money required. However, the candidate must be able to provide for one's self in the daily life of budget travel. This can range anywhere from $25-35/day USD. May be less if candidate is open to sharing double rooms with twin beds. And maybe a double bed if hanky panky is mutually agreed upon.
  • Previous travel experience is preferred but not essential.
  • Strong communication skills at all levels, including eye contact in compromised situations.
  • Must be physically active but not necessarily an Ironman athlete.
  • Must DEFINITELY have a sense of adventure, humour, wonderment and like fart jokes.

Work Hours
This position is a 24hr a day job. Productivity is not required during sleeping hours. This may include siestas, Chang-overs, and dozing off to a crisp on a beach somewhere hot and sunny.
There will be occasional minutes (or hours) of cleaning up guesthouse/hostel rooms; if only because Co-Traveler does not want to be co-responsible for any items damaged or left behind in said living/sleeping quarters.
Position will require jaunts to border crossings, airports, bus and/or train stations as needed and at all possible hours of the day or night.
Border crossing may look like this:

Being on over night buses may look like this:
