Around the World in 90 Days on the Cheap

“Back in 1872, it was easy to go around the world. When Phileas Fogg, the hero of Jules Verne’s novel “Around the World in 80 Days,” wanted to do it, he simply left his London club, went home to collect a few shirts and his servant, and caught the 8:45 p.m. express train to Dover. He was on his way.”
