Infographic inspired by Jules Verne's “Around the world in 80 days”, shows how long it takes to go around the world using different forms of transport

How long do I need to go around the world? This question has always probed the mind of every traveler who plans to one day fulfill the great dream of traveling the world. Marked by the desire to explore new regions and get to know different cultures around the planet, embarking on a long journey can be fascinating and one of the great feats among people who have this “travel gene”. 

The most daring plan this experience in a totally unique way, adapted to their own inner desires - until they get the courage and conditions - to allow themselves to meet the unexpected and escape any form of comfort zone. Whether traveling by bike, cruise, sailboat, plane or even doing most of the journey by car, the desire to embark on such an experience is almost unanimous among people who love being tourists and walking around the world.

Referring to the novel by French writer Jules Verne, released in 1873, the Betway, casino site was inspired to detail in an infographic showing different ways to embark on a round-the-world trip, including replicating part of the route taken by Phileas Fogg, a character in the work “Around the world in 80 days”.

Phileas made the journey with its beginning and end in central London, traveling around the world using, for the most part, rail routes that do not exist outside of Verne's literature, but which can be recreated with other methods of travel.

How long does it take to go around the world?

With railways spread all over the world, one of the most desired options is the round-the-world travel by train. Although it is not possible to use this means of transport alone, the trip is considered the third fastest way to go around the world and would take about 30.6 days. 

But, as some regions of the world still do not have a rail connection, some parts of the journey need to be done with the support of ferry, car or plane. The total distance of this trip, according to the infographic, would be more than 57 thousand kilometers.

Another curiosity presented in the infographic is that, if the adventurer takes on an experience like this traveling by car, for example, he will have to travel more than 51 thousand kilometers, taking about 23 and a half days of trip. As in many parts there are no roads, using a ferry and plane for part of the journey is essential to complete the trip within this period, but it can make the itinerary much more interesting and profitable.

In the novel, the character managed to travel all over the world traveling more than 65 thousand kilometers in 80 days. But, according to the infographic, if this adventure were made with the technology we have today, it could be successfully completed in 3.3 days, that is, 80 hours of journey.
