Whilst I don't suggest that you teach to travel (unless perhaps its teaching English or the like), if you have a passion for teaching and a passion for travelling, then they certainly go hand in hand. With anywhere up to 15 weeks leave a year, it allows plenty of time to travel and explore. This is particularly useful if you are on an overseas working holiday and travel is a priority for you.
Now don't get me wrong, you may not want to travel every holiday. Teaching, especially full time in a school, is like jamming a whole year of work into 4 short terms and come holiday time, the couch is quite often more enticing then negotiating an airport and exploring a new place.
If you're not married to a teacher, it can also get a little tricky. Most mere mortals only have 4 to 5 weeks leave a year, which leaves a rather big disparity. This is the case for my husband and I and here are three ways we work around it.
