Teaching English to the world
I enjoy teaching and learning. This, and itchy feet, has taken me to many interesting places around the globe. The last few years I’ve been teaching overseas while trying to enjoy the experience by taking advantage of every opportunity. Next I'll be going to Germany where Ill continue learning German. While living in Deutschland I hope to become fluent in both the language and the culture. As for settling down - I believe I'm what the Chinese call a "bird without feet."
Low expectations make for good experiences. You can get used to anything - its about the place not the luxuries. Make an effort, not an excuse. If you enjoy what you do, you never work a day in your life. Be happy with what you have and you'll never want for anything. Waste not, want not, etc, etc...

Teach, Learn, Share
Avoid general concepts and look for the reality in everything. Be calm and allow your brain to work through information. Einstein once said "It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer."
What I Can Share with Hosts
Good conversation is a plus. If time allows, some kind of adventure or just a walk around town is always nice. Always happy to share the chores and cook.
