In 1953, a 13 year old and his parents emigrated from England to the United States. That is, of course, Nightline anchor Ted Koppel. Young Ted Koppel, of course, grew up to be a foreign correspondent for ABC news, and spent the last two decades anchoring Nightline. He figures he's visited at least 85 countries. In 1999, he kept a journal of his life and travels - that year he reported from Kosovo and vacationed in Ireland and Greece and Turkey. The journal became a book, Off Camera, and I spoke with Ted Koppel about his year traveling, starting off with that Kosovo trip. "The toughest thing about traveling in the Balkans," he writes, "is traveling in the Balkans."
