Hello Amie,

Welcome to Lingora! Great to have you here! Like you I love travelling and visiting new countries. As you mention, each country has its' own unique culture and environment, so I would also like to visit as many countries as I possibly can during my lifetime!

Your English is very good indeed. I had no problems understanding you, as you speak very clearly and fluently.

Just a few things I would like to point out.

1. regarding to which countries (I would use the phrase "with regards to") with regards to the countries I would like to visit.   

2. trying to response a dificut question (In English, you respond TO a question) trying to respond to a difficult question.  (also, pay attention to the spelling of the word difficult

3. thousand - the TH sound is difficult to master. I would recommend you watch a video like this one on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCkONOv2JJM

listen to me saying the word a few times....

4. any preference about those countries, (In English, you have a preference for something)

5. many type of foods that give me some curiosity to meet all of them Many types of foods that make me curious about trying/tasting them. (You try / taste different foods in English)
