Jules Verne came up with the idea for one of the masterpieces, Around The World in 80 Days, one morning as he was reading the newspaper.
Around The World in 80 Days follows a rich Englishman by the name of Mr. Fogg who, on a bet, decides to make a mad dash at being the first person in the world to circumnavigate the world in such a short period of time. He deals with troublesome natives, a group of people about to sacrifice a beautiful woman, and a police officer who is convinced that Mr.Fogg has been robbing a string of banks along the way.
Even in our modern age of aviation, any kind of journey around the world is still amazing and open only to those who are courageous and financially endowed enough to do it.
Aviation simply didn't exist then,and people weren't used to the idea of being able to cross very large distances over such a short period of time. The prospect of travelling around the world in eighty days must have been absolutely fascinating. Even in our modern age of aviation, any kind of journey around the world is still amazing and open only to those who are courageous and financially endowed enough to do it.
Around The World in Eighty Days has been made into several theater productions, films, T.V. shows, and animations. It is referenced often in popular culture as the backdrop for T.V. and cartoon episodes.
