Around the World in Eighty Days is a classic adventure novel by the French writer Jules Verne, published in 1873.

In the story, Phileas Fogg of London, a rich British gentleman living in solitude attempts to circumnavigate the world in 80 days.

Fogg departs from London by train at 8:45 p.m. on 2 October and he will have to return by this same time on 21 December, 80 days later.

Following the publication of the English translation, many people have tried to follow in the footsteps of Fogg’s fictional circumnavigation, often within self-imposed constraints.
