Two hundred flights, 120,000 air miles, 400 hours in flight, 220 different airports, 12.5 days waiting for flights and 140 different beds. Imagine the check-in hassles, the different airline meals and the jet lag! In November 2002 two travel-crazy New Zealanders set off to conquer the Guinness Book of Records for travel - 193 countries in 150 days - and they succeeded. This is the account of their outrageous journey, the places they visited and, in particular, the people they met. They were angered, humbled, scared and tired - but never bored. In fact, John Bougen would like to do it all over again! A book for armchair tourists and serious travellers alike.
