Both she and Richard are well-traveled and have visited Europe many times.
She has had maids from Guatemala, Britain, Ireland, Romania, USA, Portugal, France, Germany and numerous other countries and is constantly criticized for her treatment of them and the expectations she has of them.

I felt completely trapped, with no one to talk to, no one who would understand.
