I’ve Been to 60 Countries, but These 6 Changed Me Forever

Reader's Digest Canada Logo By Johanna Read of Reader's Digest Canada | Slide 1 of 8: I've been lucky enough to travel to 60 countries on every continent, save Antarctica. They've been large like China and tiny like Vatican City. Sometimes I go for in-depth visits of a month or more, and sometimes I've just had a small introduction, thanks to a Viking or Windstar cruise. There are none I wouldn't go back to and several I love so much that I return regularly. I'm driven by the need to learn as much as possible about the world and the different histories and cultures that make it so rich. I aim to practice responsible tourism as much as possible, ensuring that the destinations' economies, cultures, and environments are at least not made worse by my visit and perhaps made a little bit better. Before you book your next trip, check out these tips on the right way to travel, according to environmental experts.
