Eliza's Travels

    Eliza spent a great deal of her life traveling the world.  Some of the many places we know she visited include Alaska, Japan, China, Korea, Russia, England, Italy, Ireland, Java, and India.  Eliza's enthusiasm to explore, and her hardiness, are as apparent in her writings as her strong opinions!  (Read some of the book, Winter India, here.)






    Above picture is one of Eliza's photos from a trip to Asia.  The woman in the photo is probably Eliza herself.  (See the
Smithsonian collection of her travel photos here.)
