Michael Palin has taken on the task of duplicating Phileas Fogg's feat by attempting to circumnavigate the globe, beginning and ending at the Reform Club in London, in eighty days, using no air travel. He meets Python fans in Greece, eats snake in China, and generally goes from one adventure to another, all the while fighting to make his deadline. Written by Kathy Li

Quotes

Michael Palin: [on the train to Shanghai] There's a small army of 50 staff on this train. I'm not quite sure what they all do but yesterday I saw one energetically sloshing a wet mop up and down our corridor. It didn't seem to be doing the carpet any good at all.

Warning- US dvds are not the series
10 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved the series but the DVDs you will link to are NOT the dvds of Palin'e journey. Panlin makes a great journey following the original intent of the story. He does not use aircraft and I find the journey both interesting and dramatic. Following the journey of Phineous is difficult today...surprisingly. His observations are amusing and interesting...especially to people from the US. The question that Palin constantly worries about is whether he can make it in 80 days and it is a dramatic race to the finish. Watch out, the dvds on Amazon are not the dvds of Palin's journey. I hope that someday they will make a version for us. Until then, be very careful.
