    Smile ask for information

    dear in the book of grammar in use
    they said
    We use the present perfect continuous for an activity that has recently stopped or just stopped. There is a
    connection with now

    When we talk about a period of time that continues from the past until now, we use the present perfect
    (have been/have traveled etc.). Here, Dave and Jane are talking about the places Jane has visited in her life
    (which is a period that continues until now).

    so this period continuous until now

    so what is the difference between the present perfect continuous and present perfect simple
    thank you

    "Jane has been travelling around the world, she has visited 14 countries in the past year and she hopes to visit many more."
    Does that make it clearer?
