I strive to learn what others do well in their own countries, help them with what I can contribute from my own life experiences, and then incorporate the best of all of those qualities into my own life. I have found that when I give to others, it is returned in multiples. Even the little things make a difference, but you will not know unless you try.
For travel advice, I suggest that you research what you can from the comfort of home, and then be prepared to learn as you go. Sometimes, the bigger cities can dull your travel experience, so look for the little things and quieter places, like Torno on Lake Como.
