cé­line Cousteau calls

her­self a “mod­ern no­mad” and laughs at the idea of hav­ing a home­town: “My tap­root is in France, be­cause that’s where my fam­ily is, but I have sur­face roots ev­ery­where.” That’s no ex­ag­ger­a­tion: The French-Amer­i­can grand­daugh­ter of famed ocean ex­plorer Jacques Cousteau trav­els “hun­dreds of thou­sands” of kilo­me­tres (ev­ery­where from the Ama­zon to the Antarc­tic) each year through her work as a film­maker and an ex­plorer and now as an am­bas­sador for the Tread­Right Foun­da­tion, which ad­vo­cates for sus­tain­able tourism. “Trav­el makes us all ex­plor­ers be­cause it’s about the ex­plo­ration of your­self in a new place,” says Cousteau.
