They said it couldn't be done!
They said it shouldn't be done!
(and they were right on at least one of those counts...)
But done it has been!

Get your Passports and Visas up to date as like Phileas Fogg, you will be travelling around the world, courtesy of TheAndyGrant.

Mr. Phileas Fogg lived, in 1872, at No. 7, Saville Row, Burlington Gardens, the house in which Sheridan died in 1814. He was one of the most noticeable members of the Reform Club, though he seemed always to avoid attracting attention; an enigmatical personage, about whom little was known, except that he was a polished man of the world. People said that he resembled Byron--at least that his head was Byronic; but he was a bearded, tranquil Byron, who might live on a thousand years without growing old.

However you do not need to know this but for those of you who prefer your holidays with room service and duty free, you may want to start brushing up on your world knowledge.
