He Visited All Countries in the World - Without Boarding a Plane?

Graham Hughes, a British man from Liverpool, just set a record by visiting 201 countries - all the countries of the world - without flying on a single airplane!

What a great accomplishment, but think you can do it too? I mean, visiting some countries can be challenging in itself (for safety/security reasons), but traveling to some remote places without an airplane - I can only imagine!

"He says people tend to wonder how he got into the further-out countries like North Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan, but he says they were the easy ones." Ok, I can trust him on that I guess. And yes, getting to all those small island nations in the South Pacific seems particularly difficult!

  1. i can definitely attest to north korea being easier to get to by sea! and a ship from korea to south america (i wanna say chile is where it lands) takes 40 days, but it can be as much as $2000 cheaper than a plane ticket! :)
