A friend of mine is currently applying for her passport. I suggested she take a grand tour of the world and follow the route that Phileas Fogg took is Jules Vernes novel, "Around the World in Eighty Days," a route investigative journalist Nellie Bly took in 1888, in 72 days, after only two days of planning I would add.
Fogg's adventures took starting at the Reform Club, to him to the following locations; London, Paris, Turin, Brindisi, Suez, Aden, Bombay, Kholby, Allahabad, Calcutta, Strait of Malacca, Hong Kong, Yokohama, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Chicago, New York City, Liverpool, London, and lastly the Reform Club.
My friend would obviously start in a different location and I believe Teapioca Lounge (north) is a good enough starting point as any, considering it's a favorite place of hers. Her travels would take her from Austin, Chicago, New York City, Liverpool, London, Paris, Turin, Brindisi, Suez, Djibouti, Mumbai, Chitrakoot Dham, Allahabad, Kolcata, Malacca City, Singapore, Hong Kong, Yokohama, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Austin, ending back at Teapioca Lounge.
As you may notice a couple of her stops have changed. Due to safety concerns Aden has been replaced with its sister city Djibouti and instead of traveling through the Strait of Malacca and its problem with pirates, it's been replaced with separate stops (likely by plane) to Malacca City and Singapore. The names of both Bombay and Calcutta have been replaced by their contemporary names of Mumbai and Kalcata. And since Kolby doesn't even exist, it's been replaced by Chitrakoot Dham which comes closest in cultural description and physical description to Kolby.
Oh, and if my friend were to want to travel with her own "goes-anywhere" and Passepartout to her Phileas Fogg, I am an relatively experienced world traveler with a passport. Just saying...
