Around the world in eighty days...


One day in the Reform Club, Mr. Phileas Fogg, an Englishman who usually never travels, makes a bet that he can go around the world in 80 days. The same day Passepartout has just started work as Phileas Fogg’s new servant. He is in search of a quiet life. Everything changes with the bet, and, after packing a few essential things, the two men embark on a big adventure to try to win it.

The first part of the journey is by train through the English country down to the sea, where they must cross the English Channel. However, when they get there, they meet John Roberts, a pipe-smoking sailor, who tells them that they have missed the boat. Fortunately, John Roberts offers them the use of his own boat, free of charge! They set sail, and eventually make it to India.

While they are in Bombay, in the heart of India, they meet at beautiful princess named Aouda. Aouda is kind to them and she shows them a new way to travel through the jungle by elephant in order to continue their journey and reach Hong Kong.

The two travellers make their way to Hong Kong by elephant with and Aouda also shows Phileas Fogg a beautiful traditional Indian dance from Bombay, before they say goodbye. In Hong Kong, Phileas Fogg and Passepartout get separated. While looking for Phileas Fogg, Passepartout meets a Phileas Fogg, Passepartout meets a Chinese magician called Chao Lin-Chin. He is a funny man who is short sighted and often misunderstands things, but he is able to do magic tricks.

Passepartout and Phileas Fogg eventually find each other and set sail for London. They think they have arrived a day too late for Phileas Fogg to win his bet, but they are not sure. Passepartout goes to buy the newspaper in order to fi nd out what the date is, in order to see if they have managed to travel all the way around the world in eighty days!
