Journal of a Trip Abroad in 1920

Fannie Drummond spent six weeks traveling through Europe in 1920. Her great-great-granddaughter found her diary of the trip, and is posting each entry on a blog exactly 90 years to the day after they were first recorded.

Some of our fellow passengers are disgruntled ex-saloon keepers and their families going back to the old country where they can pursue their business unmolested. Others are Belgians and others in sympathy with them. We enter into no arguments but look pleasant and smile, and gradually the ice is melting and they begin to think that we are pleasant people after all.

And here's a shot of grandpa on camelback at the pyramids:
