work experience ideas?

my planned work experience for lcvp just fell through and ive only got a week to think up something else!
ne ideas? i want to study teaching but dont plan to teach for a good few years because i want to travel and do tv and radio and some other stuff for a few years!
what would be exciting or just plain fun to do for a week it does not have to be anything to do with the teaching etc . . .

please help!

Try get experience in a radio station, maybe? Someone I work with got work experience in a fire station -- she (yes, she -- the only girl there!) loved it. Could be exciting

What's wrong with teaching for a week? It's not like you'll be forced to go straight back to it after school, you can still do all your travelling and stuff. And the week might give you some idea of whether you really want to do teaching permanently some day.

I'm sorry but interesting jobs generally don't come your way unless you work your ass off for years to attain them. You're not going to get "ultima dream job" within a week. Unless you head to Belfast to be one of Ireland's first porn stars.

I did my work experience with the Gardaí...best week ever!

If you play your cards right like me and my friend did you will be out all day on patrols etc.

Seriously even if you have no interest in being a garda, do it!
