In the nineteenth and early twentieth century many travelers went on a journey from Latin America to Europe by steamboat. In this context, the Atlantic Ocean, on the one hand, represented what was necessary to be overcome, whilst, on the other hand, it also functioned as the connecting element between the American and the European continent. This chapter focuses on the actual transfer – the crossing of the Atlantic with the steamship – and outlines the entangled constitution and transformation of sea-traveling bodies and the Atlantic space. By combining praxeological approaches with philological perspectives this article captures the TransAtlantic along the three-step sequence, “departure – crossing – arrival”, tracing its meaning for the travelers.
