Man Trips to 201 Nations without Plane

British traveler Graham Hughes has turn out to be the first person to visit all 201 countries in the world with no utilizing a plane, according to resource. The 33-year-old swashbuckler from Liverpool used buses, taxis, trains and his own two feet to travel 160,000 miles or 2,56,000 km in 1,426 days, all on a shoestring financial plan of just $100 a week.

He used up four days "crossing open sea in a spongy boat" to reach Cape Verde, was jailed for a week in the Congo for being a "spy", was under arrest annoying to "slink into" Russia and had to be "released from Muslim fundamentalists by a Filipino lady boy called Jenn". And on Monday Hughes finished the epic four-year trip by crossing into Juba, the capital of South Sudan, which did not even exist when he set off from his hometown of Liverpool on New Year's Day 2009.

"I love take a trip and I guess my motive for doing it was I required to see if this could be completed, by one person travelling on a shoestring," he enlightens to the Christian Science Monitor. "I feel I also wanted to illustrate that the world is not some big, terrifying place, but in fact is full of people who want to help you even if you are a visitor”.
