If I could earn a living off of what I love most, it would be hard for me to decide what I love most, but I think that I would like to earn a living by traveling to different areas of the world and becoming educated there. I would not just want to learn what the books in the area are about, but I want to learn of the culture of each area. I would learn the native language and learn what aspects of their civilization I might be able to help. I would likely never help each area in the exact same way, but instead I would pull from what I had previously learned. For example, I may go to a small area in France where they are experiencing a problem with erosion around their grape, wheat and corn fields. During a visit to another area, I had been taught a trick to preventing and reversing soil erosion, and so I teach this trick to the farmers of the area I am currently visiting. In gratitude, the farmers would likely choose to teach me a special trick they know of harvesting which I could carry on to another area. My travels would be focused on small areas where humanitarian aid may not feel themselves necessary or may not even know the areas exist.
