Meet The Man Who Has Visited Every Country In The World Without Flying A Plane

British adventurer Graham Hughes has
managed to visit all 201 UN recognised
countries without travelling by plane or
driving himself, BBC reports.....

“I did it because most people said it was
impossible and because it was a travel
adventure which hadn’t been done before” he

Hughes set off on his adventure on January 1,
2009 from Uruguay travelling for 1,426 days
on a $100 a week budget.
He finally completed his journey in the
world’s youngest country, South Sudan.

“I’ve fed the crocs in Australia, hunted the
dragons of Komodo, befriended the
orangutans in Borneo, played with the
lemurs in Madagascar, washed the elephants
in India and eaten live octopus in South

Hughes made it out alive — and earned some
major street cred along the way. In addition
to the Guinness World Records recognizing
him for “Most Countries Visited in One Year
by Scheduled Ground Transport,” Hughes
spent a week in a Congolese prison, was
arrested sneaking into Russia and joined a
Bwiti tribe in Gabon.

He even tiptoed into North Korea, which is
not exactly a popular tourist destination.
