23-Year-Old Is Living The Dream And Getting Paid To Travel The World (Photos)
Imagine traveling the world, seeing something new almost every day and getting paid for it.
That's exactly what life is like for Brooke Saward, a 23-year-old from Australia.
Her wanderlust is earning her major success. Her travel blog, World of Wanderlust, reportedly garners close to 950,000 page views on a monthly basis.
Over the course of a year, Saward visited about 50 countries and six different continents, according to Daily Mail. But where did her story begin? When did she start doing this?
Well, Saward's wanderlust began the day she graduated from her university.
She purchased a one-way ticket to London, and since then, she's been traveling the world all by herself.
Her fans keep up with her on social media.
With a combined 320,000 followers across different social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat, fans get to practically tag along with Saward while she travels to places people dream of visiting.
One scroll through her Instagram feed and you'll wonder why you haven't packed your bags yet.
The answer to that question is likely money. It takes a lot of it to live life on the edge like Saward.
But thanks to her travel blog, she's been able to develop relationships with tourism boards, hotels and travel companies willing to fund her expeditions for exposure.
And when she's not hiking to the top of mountains and swimming down coastlines, Saward chooses to get cozy in hotel rooms, write her blog posts and edit her photos from her trips.
If you were ever wondering what true wanderlust looks like, just take one look at her Instagram!
