Unit price per

In this inspiring travelogue, celebrated traveler and photographer Jessica Nabongo—the first Black woman on record to visit all 195 countries in the world—shares her journey around the globe with fascinating stories of adventure, culture, travel musts, and human connections.

It was a daunting task, but Jessica Nabongo, the beloved voice behind the popular website The Catch Me if You Can, made it happen, completing her journey to all 195 UN-recognized countries in the world in October 2019. Now, in this one-of-a-kind memoir, she reveals her top 100 destinations from her global adventure.
Beautifully illustrated with many of Nabongo's own photographs, the book documents her remarkable experiences in each country, including:

  • A harrowing scooter accident in Nauru, the world’s least visited country,
  • Seeing the life and community swarming around the Hazrat Ali Mazar mosque in Afghanistan,
  • Horseback riding and learning to lasso with Black cowboys in Oklahoma,
  • Playing dominoes with men on the streets of Havana,
  • Learning to make traditional takoyaki (octopus balls) from locals in Japan,
  • Dog sledding in Norway and swimming with humpback whales in Tonga,
  • A late night adventure with strangers to cross a border in Guinea Bissau,
  • And sunbathing on the sandy shores of Los Roques in Venezuela.
