Interviews with me

My usual reaction when someone points a camera at me for too long. Same thing about putting all these interviews here. Photo by Hilary Duff.

  • Travel deal guru Johnny Jet interviews frequent flyers from around the world, including guidebook writer and TV show host Rick Steves and astronaut Scott Parazynski. And now including me:  Travel Style: Johanna Read. I talk about my most embarrassing travel moment, the worst travel moment that turned into my best, and some of my favourite places and things. And for some inexplicable reason, I chose to use a photo of me on top of a lighthouse in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, where I am pretending to be a bear.




  • I’m featured in the June 2016 alumni newsletter of the Governor General’s Canadian Leadership Conference. This conference invites 225-250 Canadians from the public, private and labour sectors to participate in an incredible two weeks of leadership development and learning about Canada. I participated in the 2003 conference and toured the Yukon territory. Generally every four years, there’s a special conference in 2017 to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. Applications close September 30, at LeadershipCanada.ca.
  • Couples travel: I was interviewed for Stacey McKenna’s article in Mind + Body, a print magazine of the Coloradoan (Holiday 2015 issue). It has advice from several travel writers about how to not only maintain your relationship whilst travelling, but maybe have it grow even stronger too: PDF of print version: The Buddy System and online version:  The Buddy System.
  • An article about my lemon pie life and how to make your dreams a reality, by Lauren Crabbe for The World, Please: The Lemon Pie Life.
  • Via Love Play Work, how I started travel writing for LuxuryAndBoutiqueHotels.com (a chapter of what I call my “lemons to lemon pie” story): What if you had said yes?
