One Couple’s Journey Traveling Around the World

“Visiting 26 countries over 12 months required a frantic pace from the start, so our biggest shock upon returning came from finally slowing down rather than cultural contrast.”

Cotopaxi has been following the travels of Mark and Britnee Johnston of Salt Lake City, Utah, who have recently returned home after a year of traveling around the world. They visited 26 countries in 12 months. They experienced everything from trekking the Himalayas and snorkeling in Thailand to exploring Torres del Paine and climbing Machu Picchu. They conquered fears, forged lasting relationships, and expanded their palates. Upon returning, they reflected on reverse-culture shock, 

“This was due in part to us finally slowing down; like the end of a whirlwind rollercoaster ride, the brakes engaged and we returned to a more agreeable speed of life — one not known since blasting off a year ago. Visiting 26 countries over 12 months required a frantic pace from the start, so our biggest shock upon returning came from finally slowing down rather than cultural contrast.”
