In 1945 Schoedler retired and devoted herself permanently to "vagabonding." Between 1922 and 1963 she traveled to every continent except Antarctica, often settling down for months or years in a favorite place. She preferred to avoid cities and concentrated on native peoples and customs and exotic scenery. She died in a car accident at the age of 72 in August 1963 while touring the American West Coast.
