——-If you were to make a trip around the world, which route would you choose to take? Think about how would it differ from Phileas Fogg’s route? And without worrying about too many of the details, how quickly do you think you could make it around the world today? Please choose several different types of travel for the trip, and remember that even if you fly, you will need to keep track of the airport cities you stop in.
I think that, using today’s resources and travel improvements, I could make it around the world in 40 or 50 days. I would use Airplanes, Boats, and maybe Trains and Cars. I would have to take into consideration, setbacks. Such as, delayed and late flights. Boat problems, and the fact that it would cost a great deal of money. I might get a flat tire, get sick, or even die trying.
I could die if the plane crashed. If my boat sank, if I crashed my car or if something else happened. I have never flown on a plane except for when I was a year old. I don’t remember it at all.
My route would be different because I would be starting in Florida and traveling the opposite way that Mr. Fogg did. I would start in Florida and then go to San Francisco. From there I would go to Yokahama, then Hong Kong, then Calcutta. From Calcutta I would go to Bombay and then Suez. From Suez to London and back to Florida.
