One day the members of club discussed about a robbery that took place in London, on the way of speech Phileas Fogg told he could travel around the world in eighty days. All the members who got interested about that topic offered him twenty thousand pound if he is able to do it else he have to give twenty thousand pound to them. He then announced them that he is going to start his journey on Wednesday of 2nd October at 8:45 pm from the club and will return to the club on Saturday 21st October at sharp 8:45 pm. It was the day he appointed his new servant named Jean Passepartout. He asked his servant to accompany him to get succeed in his mission. Thus they both got started. On their way Phileas didn’t forget to take his new bank notes. Mean while someone robbed a bank in that city. The investigator, Mr. Fix got suspected that Phileas made the robbery and started to follow him with out his knowledge. He acted friendly to Jean and collected information about Phileas. Phileas plan was to travel through rail and steamer in the direction of east to west London-Suez via Mont cenis, Brandish through -7 days Suez to Bombay -13 days Bombay to Calcutta -3 days Calcutta to Hong Kong - 13 days Hong Kong to Yokohama - 6 days Yokohama to San Francisco -22 days San Francisco to New York -7 days New York to London - 9 days Total - 80 days Fix tried to stop Phileas several times but it was all in vain.
Phileas did not forget to get stamped his passport in each port as evidence. On their way he bought an elephant which he later handed over to the man who helped him to travel, also he rescued a lady who was supposed to die through a Hindu system, Sati. He later married her. At last Fogg arrested Phileas and fainting Jean on the 79th day of his trip which was a great hit for Phileas. However they reached London on the 80th day but in an incorrect time. Phileas was feeling excited when Jean told him that they arrived on the 79th day itself. He told him that the reason for the confusion is they traveled in the west-east direction which made them gain a day.
