"You don't know until you go!"
I am a middle-aged optimist and live to help others, but cannot do that out of ignorance. When I travel I learn and become a better helper. Thus, when I travel, I help. Not only do I help the people immediately around me by sharing my charm, I tend to buy goods and services which certainly helps support their economy, and the tourism industry in general. Since I am a Teacher, the (theoretical)(book) knowledge I have about people or an area becomes practical, which enriches me and I am able to transmit this to my students and anyone else who cares to know more about what I've gained. I have extended this information by writing several books under my pen name of "Juanito Hayburg" and hopes the writings become a source of information and inspiration. More importantly, I have been married almost a third-century and have two children, with whom I have particularly enjoyed traveling; those travels continue to be a source of my books.
