What you need to know before your trail

Whilst at London’s Exclusive Reform club one evening, Phileas Fogg makes a bet with his colleagues, risking his entire fortune by claiming that it is possible to circumnavigate the globe in eighty days. These were the days when travel was a wonder that not everyone got to enjoy and the ability to cross the world was thought to be impossible in such short a space of time.

With his French valet Passepartout in tow, Verne’s hero traverses the far reaches of the earth, all the while tracked by the intrepid Detective Fix, a bounty hunter certain he is on the trail of a notorious bank robber.
But Phileas Fogg and Passepartout are on the trail of something else all the more wonderful – the sense of freedom, wanderlust and excitement that only travel can give.
But the bet hangs over them, and the clock is ticking…
