when Nellie Bly was a reporter for the New York World newspapers, it was
very rare to for a woman to hold that job. Instead of writing about
social events, Nellie wrote hard news stories about factory life and poor
people and crooked politicians. One news story that she was determined
to get involved her breaking a record. Travel was not easy in 1888.
There were no airplanes or high speed trains. It could take weeks
to cross the Atlantic to get to Europe. But Nellie set out to travel
around the world in 75 days. Join her on her voyage and find out
what life was like over a hundred years ago.
