If you ask me, “What is your ideal job?”, I will definitely say that “A tour guide!”. “A tour guide? It is quite a low-income and exhausting career.”
Many people’s ideal jobs are those which can get high income, comfortable working environment such as CEO, managers of company, clerks etc. But for me, I think my interest and enjoyment are much more important than money and comfortable working condition. So I choose tour guide to be my ideal job.
The main duty of tour guides is to make arrangement of air-ticket, arrange the itinerary for the tourists, book hotel for them and book restaurant for their meals. In addition, we need to follow the tourists and satisfied their needs and their wants. The duty of tour guide is important in a trip. It is affecting the whole journey of the tourists. I think I can handle these jobs well.
But why would I like to be a tour guide? It is because of my personality and my dream. Firstly, I am an outgoing, talkative and independent person. Indoor works and activities are not suitable for me. I think it is quite boring actually. As I am talkative, I am fond of chatting with people continuously. For a tour guide, I can talk to the tourists, so I won’t suffer from boredom. Also, I am independent, so I don’t need to be taken care by the others. I can handle everything well.
Secondly, my dream is to travel all around the world. If I am a tour guide, I could be able to travel all around the world free of charge, and with payment back. It sounds attractive.
The country I want to visit the most is Australia. There are some animal species that are unique in their country, such as koala and kangaroo. Also, I want to visit Sydney Opera House. It is exceedingly beautiful when I first saw it in postcard.
Another country I want to visit is Thailand. It is famous for its spicy food and beautiful scenery. The beach and sunshine are what I value most. There are many islands in Thailand. So, I can do my favourite sports like swimming there.
Finally, I can speak different language fluently. And this helped me communicate with the local people in different countries. I can speak Chinese, English, Putonghua, Japanese, Spanish etc. And these criteria allow me to go to different country and chat with local people.
After my explanation, don’t you think that being a tour guide is an ideal job? Do you want to be a tour guide too?
