Jules Verne wrote the novel Around the World in Eighty Days in 1872, in which Phileas Fogg makes a wager that he can travel around the world in just eighty days. Fogg did precise calculations to gauge his travel, and although he ran into complications, completed the trip in time. Can someone do that today? There have been a few people, mainly celebrities, who recreated Fogg’s feat, one even on a bicycle. But can an ordinary person using ordinary travel methods do it? Yes they can! You don’t even need a private plane.
There are a few trick involved, though. Rail travel is still feasible in many parts of the world, and your route should take you through nations that aren’t at war or hard to enter. The real trick is to book passage on cargo ships. Read how, with a bit of planning, you can circumnavigate the earth in eighty days at The Travel.
