When one gets a bit older it's usually frowned on if you talk about the past too much. Tourism gives Paul a legitimate reason to reminisce about times/experiences in his life when he has grown up on a farm, sold wine, been a tourist operator etc. and draw on those experiences when answering clients' questions.
