The Strand

Huzzah! We are extremely excited to announce that our valiant explorers, Jessica Last and Charlie Wild, have returned to London within 80 days (or an astonishing 72 days, to be precise)! Inspired by Phileas J. Fogg’s famed voyage around the world, their extraordinary expedition comprised of ten weeks, seven countries, nine seas, three oceans and countless incredible experiences. Keep your eyes peeled for their exclusive worldly Bombay Sapphire libation launching soon at Mr Fogg’s Society of Exploration inspired by their journey!

See below our summary of the unique adventures of the #MrFoggsJourney…

 

Italy

Our explorers learnt how to make traditional Italian spaghetti in the rolling hills of Southern Italy, whilst also exploring the magnificent multitude of  historical landmarks in the ancient city of Rome.

 

India

The pair were taught the art of kite-running by locals on the rooftops of Varanasi,  watched the sun rise over the river Ganges from a local fishing boat, watched a traditional Hindu ceremony and cremation on the Ghats of India’s holiest city and learnt the art of tea-making in the Darjeeling Himalayas.
 

Singapore

On the tropical island of Singapore, they sipped on cricket cocktails in one of the world’s top ten bars and ate breakfast with locals in the city’s most famous Hawker market.
 

Hong Kong

Here, our explorers camped wild on one of Hong Kong’s mysteriously hidden beaches, Tai Long Bay beach, surrounded only by clear waters, moody skies and tropical forests.
 

China

The adventurous pair hiked through the floating mountains of China’s Zhangjiajie ‘Avatar’ National Park, and stayed with a local family in the scenic mountain town of Wulingyuan.
 

Japan

They trekked through the ancient Kumano Kodo pilgrimage in the forests of Southern Japan, cycled across 8 islands, bathed in the hot onsens of Yunomine and sipped on sake in the tiny bars of Tokyo’s Golden Gai alleyways. The explorers also met the geishas of Kyoto, and dressed in traditional Japanese clothing of the samurai robe and geisha dress.
 

United States of America

On their final leg of their Mr Fogg’s Journey, they came face to face with a black bear in Yosemite National forest, bathed in the natural hot springs of the Mammoth Mountains and saw the world’s largest tree in the Sequoia National Forest. They also ventured to Badwater Basin (the lowest point in North America), woke up to the sunrise over Death Valley’s Mesquite Sand Dunes and culminated their journey by levitating in the skies on a hot air balloon!
