It took Graham Hughes nearly four years to cover 201 nations to become the first person to travel the world without flying.

Now fans can undertake the same journey in only four minutes without needing to leave the house.

The 33-year-old from Liverpool used buses, taxis, trains and his own two feet to travel 160,000 miles in 1,426 days - all on a shoestring budget of just $100 (£65) a week.

Um, i think prior to the first trans-oceanic air route starting (which wasn't, in practical terms, until after WWII), quite a number of people travelled the world with out flying.


If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.
