She recorded her experience in writing and published a 715 pages strong, richly illustrated report in 1903. Thirsty for knowledge, she addresses the history of every country she travelled, attentively compares the different perceptions of women in the cultures encountered, states observations on the behaviour of the colonial powers' representatives and tells enthusiastically about her joy of travelling, enjoyable travel groups, buzzing big cities and overwhelming impressions of nature.
Inspired by the travel route taken by Cäcilie von Rodt, the Division Maps and Images shows a selection of contemporary city maps and photographs of her travel destinations.
