Popes on the Road

Before the late Pope John Paul II became known as the "Pilgrim Pope" for visiting other nations (

a record 125 countries

!) during his years in the Vatican, Pope Paul VI (seen above in an undated photo) originally earned the nickname. As pope between 1963-1978, Paul VI became the first pope

to travel outside the Vatican

by airplane.
