Abstract: The article analyses the vision of otherness in the writings of Isabelle Eberhardt (1877- 1904) and of Aurora Bertrana (1892-1974). The 19th century expands the possibilities to undertake trips to faraway lands. The incipient European colonialism, the building of the Channel of Suez, steam navigation or the consolidation of a middle class that aspired to expand geographical knowledge, explain the remarkable increase of European travelers to countries of oriental culture. Women also join this wish to travel and, subverting the established patriarchal values, uses the trip as a tool of knowledge of the other and of personal discovery. Accounts of trips offer a vision of the world reformulated from the double marginality of being a woman and the foreigner condition.
