10 Shocking Ways People Have Traveled Around The World
In A Hot Air Balloon
In 1999 travelling around the world in a hot air balloon sounded like science fiction. However, Bertrand Piccard, 41, and Brian Jones, 51, were able to fly over the entire Earth in a hot air balloon with not even one pit stop in less than three weeks. They were the first ones to do it.
Cycled The Globe
A British engineer by the name of Mike Hall was the first person to ride his bike around the Earth in the record time of 107 days. He actually rode for 92 and spent some time on planes across the oceans. His record still stands and he’s officially the fastest person to cycle around the globe.
