In the second episode of our special travel miniseries, Lilah chats with Jessica Nabongo. Jessica is one of the few people, and the first recorded black woman, to have visited every country in the world. His book, Catch Me If You Can, was published by National Geographic earlier this year. Jessica tells us about acts of kindness in Iraq, beaches in Zanzibar, food in Senegal and other stories from some of the 195 countries she has visited. She also gives us advice on where to go and how to travel well.
