Everyone know there just aren't enough jobs about - particularly those that involve travelling, luxury resorts and tonnes of money.
But that dream came true for photography and travel lover Sorelle Amore. Quite literally.
Early in 2017, Amore wrote a far-fetched wish in her diary:
Travel to 12 countries in 2017 and get paid to do it.
It is quite the stretch from most of our wishes for the New Year - you know, exercise more, earn more and eat less crisps - but, unlike most of us, the 28-year-old actually got hers done.
It all started when her brother sent her a job offer alluringly entitled 'Best Job On The Planet' from luxury property and travel company Third Home.
The advert says you can "travel the world, while staying in multi-million dollar luxury vacation homes" for $10,000 a month over three months.
And you thought your company's in-house gym was good.
No wonder 17,000 people applied. And, after only hearing about the competition a day before the deadline, Amore was one of them.
Finally, the applicants were whittled down to a shortlist of 15 and she was voted as the winner by the public.
The Australian said:
The next three months I would be living the life of a rock star.
The dream life.
The life you think can't actually truly exist.
But it did and I was living it.
She boasts 13 weeks of travelling, 15 countries visited - from Scotland to the Bahamas - and over 265 hours of transit in 28 planes (although that bit doesn't sound so good).

Amore's Instagram is predictably flawless.
If you're torn between being happy for her and suffering extreme, all-encompassing jealousy, it doesn't mean you're a bad person.
It just means you're a person.
But not all of it has been absolute perfection.
Here, Amore sports a plaster on her knee... because of a crash on her scooter in Bali.
Our heart bleeds.
