When it comes to travel, there are many opportunities for setting world records. And it’s not just people who love to travel either, as there are plenty of inanimate objects that get to see the world too! Here are some top travel-related world records:
This title is held by Raymundo and was set in 2010. Owned by ISPY(UK), Raymundo went on some serious adventures and travelled a whopping 395605 miles around the globe. He visited 6 continents and 35 countries. He travelled with airline crew or sponsors and had every mile logged on a dedicated website. If Raymundo had been travelling by road, he would surely have benefitted from a BP Fuel Card. Find out more at https://www.fuelcardservices.com/fuel-cards/bp-fuel-cards
In 1984, a cat named Hamlet got out of his carry case on board a flight from Toronto and got himself stuck behind a pillar. He was there for seven weeks before being rescued by which time he had travelled some 600,000 miles across the globe! That is one well-travelled feline!
- Toy boat
A toy ship has travelled 3773 miles after being launched by Harry and Ollie Ferguson from the UK. In the year between 2017 and 2018, the boat named ‘Adventure’ sailed from Scotland to Scandinavia, before being carried to Mauritania and finishing its trip in Barbados.
- Farthest distance travelled by a worm
An unusual attempt but the record for farthest non-stop distance travelled by a worm in 1 minute 28 seconds is an impressive 59.49 metres. That worm had places to go! The record was set in 2013.
