The author traveled first to the Holy Land. She knew it was dangerous to travel alone and she thought that she might never return from her trip so she wrote her will just in case. She saw the pyramids, the Sphinx, the tomb of Queen Hatshepsut, Jerusalem, and Cairo. The journey took a little over ten months. She kept a journal during the trip and each night and wrote in pencil about her adventure during the day. In 1846 her journal was published in Austria. It became one of the most popular travel books in Europe.

The earliest traces of navigation and commerce are necessarily involved in much obscurity, and are, besides, few and faint. It is impossible to assign to them any clear and definite chronology; and they are, with a few exceptions, utterly uncircumstantial. Nevertheless, in a work like this, they ought not to be passed over without some notice; but the notice we shall bestow upon them will not be that either of the chronologist or antiquarian, but of a more popular, appropriate, and useful description. The intercourse of one nation with another first took place in that part of the world to which a knowledge of the original habitation of mankind, and of the advantages for sea and land commerce which that habitation enjoyed, would naturally lead us to assign it.

A word had better perhaps be said, and said here, as to my share in its composition. It is now twelve years ago since my friend--then Mrs. Brassey--asked my advice and assistance in arranging the Diary she had kept during the eleven months' cruise of the 'Sunbeam'. This assistance I gladly gave, and she and I worked together, chiefly at reducing the mass of information gathered during the voyage. I often felt it hard to have to do away with interesting and amusing matter in order to reduce the book even to the size in which it appeared. It was a very pleasant and easy task, and I think the only difference of opinion which ever arose between us was as to the intrinsic merit of the manuscript. No one could have been more diffident than the writer of those charming pages; and it needed all the encouragement which both I and her friend and publisher, Mr. T. Norton Longman, could offer, to induce her to use many of the simple little details of her life, literally 'on the ocean wave'.

When the fathers of the present generation were young men, and George the Third ruled the land, they imagined that the whole interior of Africa was one howling wilderness of burning sand, roamed over by brown tribes in the north and south, and by black tribes—if human beings there were—on either side of the equator, and along the west coast.

A classic of travel writing, this book recounts Stevenson's adventures on an extended walk through uplands and mountains in south-western France. Humorous on his own failings as a traveller, and on his travails with Modestine the self-willed donkey, it is also an exploration of peasant life in an area marked by the violence of the wars of religion. This version includes the fragment "A mountain town in France", originally intended as the opening chapter, but often omitted and published as a separate essay.

Our vessel was manned with a real American crew, that is, a crew, of which scarcely two men are of the same nation—which conveys a tolerably correct notion of the population of the United States. The crew consisted of one Russian, one German, one Italian, one Scotchman, one Newfoundlander, one Irishman, two Englishmen, two New Englanders, and two Negros—the cook and steward. The seamen of America are better paid, and better protected, than those of any other nation; but work harder, and must understand their duty well. Indeed if we had not had a good crew, our ship, being old, might have suffered severely.

There are few objects of interest in the town of Cherbourg. The women all wear the large Normandy cap. In the Place d'Armes is a bronze equestrian statue of the Emperor Napoleon I., and on the pedestal is inscribed "J'avois résolu de renouveler à Cherbourg les merveilles de l'Egypte". In the Library is a curiously sculptured chimney-piece of the fifteenth century, coloured and gilt, removed from a room of the abbey. The principal church, La Trinité, is a strange jumble of architecture.

Leest verrassend makkelijk weg voor een boek uit 1875. Abbott maakt zich af en toe schuldig aan het ophemelen van zijn onderwerp (onverschrokken, visionair, waardig etc etc) maar sluit ook zijn ogen niet voor de wreedheden van de Europese 'ontdekkers' tegenover de oorspronkelijke bewoners van de Caraïben. Velt uiteindelijk het wat obligate oordeel dat we Columbus 'in zijn tijdgeest' en in het licht van de toen heersende opvattingen moeten zien.

Der Kaiser der Franzosen hat sich bitter getäuscht, wenn er geglaubt hat, durch eigene Anschauung vermittelst einer blossen Triumphreise den Zustand einer Colonie kennen lernen zu können. Schon um civilisirte Völker zu studiren und dann ihren moralischen und materiellen Zustand würdigen und beurtheilen zu können, darf man nicht als grosser Herr, viel weniger als Kaiser reisen. Ich erinnere nur an die bekannte Reise der Kaiserin Katharine in Süd-Russland, der man alle Tage dieselben Leute, dasselbe Vieh entgegen trieb, um sie glauben zu machen, dass die Provinzen gut bevölkert seien. Und sehen wir nicht in Algerien bei der Reise des Kaisers sich etwas Aehnliches wiederholen? Die Duar in der Provinz Oran waren bei der Durchreise des Herrschers nach Sidi Bel-Abbès an die Landstrasse gerückt; so erzählen uns die Lokalblätter.

Am 7. April 1861 verliess ich Oran und schiffte an Bord eines französischen Messagerie-Dampfers in Mers el kebir ein. Es war Nachmittag, als wir beim herrlichsten Wetter aus der grossen Bucht hinausdampften. Die meisten an Bord befindlichen Passagiere wollten, wie ich, nach Marokko, doch waren auch einige, die Nemours, Gibraltar und Cadix als Reiseziel hatten. Der grösseren Ersparniss wegen hatte ich einen Deckplatz genommen, da mein Geldvorrath äusserst gering war; das Wetter war eben so sommerlich, die das Dampfboot führenden Leute so freundlich und zuvorkommend, dass man kaum an die grösseren Unbequemlichkeiten des Decklebens dachte.
