Around the World Without Flying

Around the world without a plane

Britisher Graham Hughes set a world record for being the most travelled person on the planet. He travelled across the world and visited 201 nations without even once boarding a plane!! So how did he do it?Graham Hughes

He either took a ground transport or walked on feet to visit every country in the world. His real challenge was visiting tiny island nations.They could only be reached via ships that went there once a month. He ended his four-year journey in South Sudan, which was not even a country when he set off from his hometown of Liverpool on New Year’s Day 2009.

Most people thought that he was mad and a lot of people thought that it was impossible.

But Graham made impossible possible. He said, “I think I also wanted to show that the world is not some big, scary place, but in fact is full of people who want to help you even if you are a stranger.”

 

While on one hand Graham saw space shuttle launch in Florida, on the other hand , 50 dolphins swam along his boat for two hours while he was sailing through Atlantic. Isn’t that awesome??
