He hadn’t many friends and spent a lot of time in Reform Club playing cards and discussing news. Once Mr. Fogg made a bet, that he could go around the world in only 80 days. Issue price was twenty thousand pounds. So Mr.Fogg and his French manservant Passepartout started their adventure at the 2 October, 8.45 p.m. and should be back home on Saturday 21 December at eight forty-five. They had to cross France, Egypt, India, China, Japan and America. In the second half of the 19th century, it was unimaginable. This venture became more incredible, when after few days of Fogg’s departure, detective Fix accused him of robbing and bank a begun to chase Phileas.
