"You don't have to search for happiness, you meet it on the way" – Isabelle Eberhardt

Isabelle Eberhardt (1877 – 1904) was a Swiss globetrotter and novelist who had an extraordinary lifestyle for her time. She traveled alone and in Algeria she even took on the identity of a man named Si Mahmoud Saadi. In the 1970s, she was rediscovered by the women’s rights movement.
