A work-life balance can be hard enough, let alone having enough time to travel around the world.

The good news is that there are many ways to get your fair share of seeing all of the world's most intriguing places and have a stable career at the same time. Gone are the days of having to be in the travel industry to be a globetrotter.

Indeed has just revealed the 15 best-paying jobs for travel lovers and there are definitely some surprises that made the cut.

Management consultants and freelance designers made the top of the list with 80 per cent or more travel time - these high earners truly have the best of both worlds. Management consultants earn £55,236 on average and travel up to 80 per cent of the time and a freelance designer earns £45,754, while constantly being on the move.

Other jobs that made the cut with 100 per cent travel time are expected such as travel writer and travel photographer - they are ranked slightly below average based on income, but still earn far more than flight attendants.
