World's greatest vagabonders
her father was great too. he was a doctor and would accompany different ventures around the world sending back letters to a very nervous wife(she died because of it i think). He wrote once a letter talking about being on a ship in the pacific next to a cannibal island with a storm approaching. when his wife got the letter finally (of course it takes a long time) in the newspaper was an article of a ship in the pasific hit by a storm and beached on a cannible island all crew dead. however this was not his ship.
later he was meant to accompany custer to meet the crow and cheyenne. he wrote to his wife who recieved the letter after the famous little big horn battle. yet again he had been delayed and not managed the trip. really funny.
Oh and mary's journals are hysterical as well as her stance that a woman should dress as would be appropriate on the streets of london even if she was in the heart of africa. she tried very hard to convince the british government
... ( i am rambling sorry)
Richard F Burton is brillient also. he knew forty languages when he died and so completely he could pass as a native in many areas. (his wife is also facinating) he was the one who translated arabian nights and kama sutra into enlgish.
He did his vagabonding entirely broke, and often enslaved. He explored southwest USA in the name of just getting home.
