“I wager twenty thousand pounds that I shall go around the earth in eighty days or less.” Thus on an October evening, 1872, Phileas Fogg made a bet with his companions in the London Reform Club. And with that, the English gentleman departed with his servant Passepartout! Many are the dangers which await for them on their road which takes them through India, China, and America...   “My a vynn gwystla ugans mil a bunsow my dhe viajya adro dhe’n bÿs in peswar ugans dëdh bò le.” Indella unn gordhuwher in mis Hedra, 1872, Phileas Fogg a genwystlas gans y gowetha i’n Reform Club, Loundres.
