Notes

Description
"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. Along with beloved destinations like Peru and South Africa, you’ll also find tales from far-flung corners and seldom visited destinations, including Tuvalu, North Korea, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic. Nabongo’s stories are love letters to diversity, beauty, and culture-and most of all, to the people she meets along the way. Throughout, she offers bucket-list experiences for other travel-lovers looking to follow in her footsteps." --books.Disney.com
