Has anybody ever walked round the world?
« on: 05 October, 2017, 11:27:56 PM »
Some friends and I were talking earlier today about getting a new hobby. One guy suggested doing something healthy would be best. I couldn't argue with that, but he stumped me when he said “You know how Francis Chichester sailed round the world? Right? How about walking round the world. Now that'd be a gas!”

I thought, gas or not, it’s insane, totally doolally. Realistically, has anyone ever been cuckoo enough to actually try it? Has anyone ever walked clean round the whole world? Did they succeed? How long did it take? Is there a world record for it?
