Following our article on female adventurers of the past, were bringing things up to date with a look at the explorers making their mark today and inspiring others to get out and blaze a trail.
Journalist Nellie Bly jumped off the page at me as I was researching Victorian female travellers. The more I got to know her, the more I was intrigued by this fearless character who wouldnt take no for an answer. Her crusades in print brought reforms in womens asylums, orphanages, sweatshops and prisons.
The story that brought Bly the most acclaim was circling the globe in 72 days in 1890, beating the fictitious record in Jules Vernes Around the World in 80 Days. One hundred and twenty five years later, I followed in her footsteps.
We both travelled alone with one small bag. She went by ocean liner and train. I flew. She journeyed through the Victorian age. I travelled through the information age, blogging along the way. Tracing Blys race around the planet expanded my own world of adventure, and I became a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. The UK and Ireland have produced many bold female travellers. My goal is to put them on the map as role models encouraging us to travel out of our comfort zones.
