Trekking With Phileas Fogg
We love audiobooks. With the volumes of audiobooks we've gone through over the years, it goes to show how much time we spend in the car...
Around the World in 80 Days" by Jules Verne, narrated by the talented Jim Dale. So as we rode in our car, we accompanied Phileas Fogg on his travels by steamer, rail, sled, and elephant. We enjoyed the story more than we expected and adored the character of Passepartout.
Could Phileas Fogg have in reality circumnavigated the world in merely 80 days? We may have a better idea once we finish watching the BBC travel series, Michael Palin: Around the World in 80 Days!
