The Gal Who Goes on Adventures Around the World and Gets Paid for It


Most people dream of traveling the world. Some had to ditch their job so they could do it. But lucky gal Kiersten Rich is living her dream while getting paid to see the world!

In 2011, the professional globe trotter from California decided that the corporate world was not for her.

So she quit her job, stuffed her things into her bag, and got on a plane. Since then, she never looked back. Rich now is busy exploring foreign countries and documents all her amazing experiences on her travel blog The Blonde Abroad and her seriously interesting  Instagram account.

Many aspire to become like Kiersten, run a successful travel blog and get paid for it. But it’s not as easy as you think.

She told Daily Mail, “If you want to start a blog to support your travels, you will most likely fail. Begin with pure intentions, hard work, and perseverance. So long as, in the end, you continue to love what you do you have succeeded.”

So far, Rich had checked 50 countries off her travel bucket list, and she’s planning to visit more.
