In 1872, French author Jules Verne (1828-1905) wrote a fantastic novel that described the adventures of Phileas Fogg, a man who bet his colleagues that he could successfully travel all the way around the world in just eighty days. In the days before airplanes this would be a pretty remarkable, if not impossible feat. The story was very popular at the time and was translated into English the next year. Perhaps you might have seen one of several movie versions of the story, Around the World in Eighty Days.
Using your atlas or globe, describe a journey that someone could take today travelling all around the world. Try to involve as many different means of transportation as you can.
