Not all smiles...[/caption] In fact, after her massive round-the-world adventure—completed sans cell phone or GPS, mind you—Elspeth returned home quietly, and put all her photos, journals and other evidence of her trip away in a box. And for the most part, that's where those memories stayed for the better part of three decades, as Elspeth pursued a successful career in England as an award-winning architect.

She’s since written a book about her trip, which will be on hand to purchase and have signed at the event.
