Jessica Nabongo is a writer and photographer, and the first Black woman to visit all 195 countries. Less than 300 people have done that - and less than 30 women have visited all 195 countries. More than 200,000 people have followed Jessica’s journey.

She has documented almost every aspect of her quest - the highs and the lows - from crystal blue waters in Indonesia, warm and welcoming strangers in Sudan, and the foothills of the Himalayas - and she’s captured the other side - difficult border crossings, sad moments at airports, and other travel fails. As a daughter of Detroit, Jessica has set out to demystify the world we live in and the people in it (and tells the truth about periods along the way...).

Her journey also reveals bigger questions - how do we set goals for ourselves, and how do we go after what we what? And what parts of ourselves do we take with us, and leave behind, when we embark on such quests?

After a year of quarantine life, it seems appropriate for THE WOMEN to TRAVEL. And there is no one better to do that with than Jessica. IG: @thecatchmeifyoucan

Every episode host Rose Reid follows one woman’s journey to do the extraordinary, and Jessica has done just that.
