Elizabeth Jane Cochrane
In the spirit of giving 110% at work, journalist Elizabeth Jane Cochrane travelled around the world in 72 days using steamships and trains. While the two little lovebirds that both begin with the letter 'K' honeymooned around a luxury villa in Italy, Liz hand wrote her log, took her own photos, and actually mailed it all back to print on a newspaper. She went by the pen name "Nelly Bly."
