Nellie Bly was the person who reinspired my round-the-world ambition.
I learnt of her during my visit to the Jules Verne museum in Nantes.
In the three-storeyed house, there was a little corner about Around the World in 80 Days book. At that corner, and there was a yellow A4 poster of a vintage-wearing lady.
The little description that accompanied the photo told me that she was a journalist (like me!) and had went on a round-the-world trip in only 72 days, 6 hours and 11 minutes. How impressive!
