The Story

Adventure, journalist and possible spy 20th century explorer Violet Cressy Marcks, visited every country in the world.

Generally she chose to travel alone, although sometimes she took her husband along as a 'passenger'. In principle she believed that adventurous travel was 'no place for a man'.

“A snake crawling over one at night is not a pleasant proposition. The wretched thing had bitten me below the knee...” having lanced the wound I “decided on coffee, a walk and sleep, and if I was going to die I was at peace with the world so there was nothing to worry about.”
-Violet Cressy-Marcks
