About the Book

Screen Shot 2019-11-03 at 12.50.41 PM

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.
