What kind of job could have a physics graduate willing to travel? I have recently graduated and I'd like to move and work in another country for an undetermined time.

I've recently graduated with a master's degree in physics, and I would like to have some work experience outside my home country, which is Belgium.
The problem is, I don't really know what to do with my degree. I had initially planned to do a PhD in Belgium, but I discovered two months ago that I wasn't as motivated as I pretended to be for this kind of job. For this reason, I don't have a clear idea on what kind of sector I should focus my demands.
I'm looking for original ideas outside the world of banks or education. For example, could my competences be relevant for:
- NGOs: paid or as a volunteer at the beginning;
- The European Commission;
As you can see, I have a very vague idea about the kind of job I'd like to have. Nonetheless, I'd really like to discover other culture and languages, and if any future job involves a little of that as well, that would be a big plus.
I'm not excluding the possibility to work in education or work as an engineer, so if anyone of you has an interesting experience to share, I'd love to read it!
You should also know that I have written my master's thesis on an aspect of string theory called the AdS/CFT correspondance. This is a very theoretical subject which needed no programming skills at all.
As a final note, I speak French, English, and have an upper-intermediate level in Spanish (and some Dutch buried inside, but that doesn't really count).
Thank you very much for you help AskMeFi! I'm sure you can help me. :-)
