Around the World in 80 Days

We set ourselves the challenge to travel 24,901 miles; the distance to circumnavigate the globe within 80 days. Now that we are 4 weeks in we thought you would like to know how we are getting on.


Not only is this challenge raising much needed funds for our charity partner Barnardo’s, it is also promoting a healthier lifestyle both within the workplace and at home; as those involved are actively taking steps (excuse the pun) to improve their health and wellbeing. We hope this expedition highlights the great work Barnardo’s do to open up a world of opportunities to young care leavers; who we will continue to support through our fundraising. We have collectively travelled 10,214.92 miles over the last 4 weeks via walking, jogging, cycling and swimming which has taken us to the below countries and landmarks.

Week 1 took us to ancient Egypt where you can find Mumble visiting the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo


Week 2 lead Mumble to Pakistan where he enjoyed the grand splendour of Mohatta Palace in Karachi.

Week 3 we found ourselves in Thailand, below you can see Mumble outside of The Grand Palace in Bangkok.

Week 4 our travels took us to China where you can see Mumble by The Longhua Temple in Shanghai.

So our quest continues, until next time…..
