If scrolling through Instagram photos of Coachella, the poppy fields in California, or the French Quarter in New Orleans gives you the itch to travel, you're probably in need of a road trip. Wouldn't it be nice if someone would just pay you to travel throughout the country, your biggest worries only where to get your coffee in the morning and what to see next? The perfect travel jobs are often elusive dreams, but sometimes dreams come true.

Paint company Behr is looking to hire a "color explorer" to travel across the United States and Canada, brainstorming new paint colors based on what they see. It could be a burnt orange lifted straight from sights of the Grand Canyon, a gray-blue inspired by an Oregon waterfall, or a light pink from an old mansion in Savannah.

This color explorer will get paid $10,000, with all travel expenses covered. In addition to scouting colors, the color explorer will keep a blog about their trip for the company's website. Because the color explorer will be sharing their experience with the public, Behr is looking for someone with a sense of adventure, someone who is really looking to soak up local experiences.

You know when you were a kid and thought the greatest job of all time was naming nail colors? This is like that, only you get to travel. Color me impressed.

If this sounds like your dream job, head to Behr's website to apply by May 15. Then, get ready to paint the town... well, it's up to you to decide the color!

Here's how to keep your healthy habits up while you're on the road. And here's how to keep those vacay vibes going after you get home.
