And he gets paid for it.
There are a lot of cool jobs out there, but Ireland-based photographer Allan Dixon may have the best. He's an adventure content marketer—meaning he travels and takes a lot of selfies with animals.
How he got the job is a story itself: He entered Tourism Australia's Best Jobs in the World competition, beating out hundreds of thousands of other applicants for job title of “Outback Adventurer (Northern Territory).” The job required a relocation to New Zealand, which is unofficially the best place for animal-spotting.
Spend a few minutes on his Instagram account and you'll see just how great this job is.
This little goat called Nigel was saved as it's mother was hit by a car. He now hangs out in the reception making visitors smile at the Kiwi Birdlife Park in Queenstown. Staff are happy, customers are happy, everyone's happy. Bring your pets to work should be mandatory. He's awesome! @kiwibirdlifepark #DaxonsAnimalSelfies
Today is #SaveQuokkas day! SMS a picture of yourself to +61437644978 and WWF will send you back a quokka selfie for you to post online and hashtag it #SaveQuokkas.
