Around the World in 80 Days - This thread is now closed. Please post on Part 2 for kms/miles/steps for Thursday 21 Jan

Dear Travellers,

I hope everyone enjoyed their day trip to Burma - what a fascinating place to visit. Tomorrow I've persuaded the captain to take a slight detour to Andaman Islands - please pack your swimming gear. Snorkels will be provided.

Tonight on the dancefloor, we have another special guest appearance. The wonderful Gregory Porter, American jazz vocalist will be singing all night long. And there will be a jive lessons beforehand so no excuses. Plenty of cocktails and bucks fizz to get you in the mood.

We are now on Day 27 of our voyage around the world. Yesterday we did great and still with travellers to check-in, achieved 557kms. Oh my we are doing so unbelievably well :) :) You are truly amazing - look at how far you have come.

Happy Travel everyone :) :)

Mine is a garmin too. I am a deskjockey so don't do much exercise all day. The watch is fab as it tells me exactly what kms I am walking and as I never walked anywhere in the past I know that everything I record is exercise I wouldn't have been doing just over a year ago.

It does mean I don't have so much to contribute here though.

Managed 11.3 km today. Back to the normal routine with an early morning walk / jog and a walk after work. Need to get more active at work though, I realised I spend over 8 hours stuck in front of a computer, mostly sitting on my posterior.

Aren't the Andaman Islands where hostile tribes live, who don't want anything to do with civilization? Or am I mixing them up? Picture looks really good though, can't wait.

Thanks for planning such a fantastic route.

9.2 km today. Majority of that walking around the corridors at work.

The dog managed to talk me into an evening walk. After 15 min I almost rang hubby to come pick me up as I was in agony. Had a coil fitted yesterday and also got my period so was not nice. I managed to push through and completed the walk, but took a lot longer than normal. Collapsed on sofa and had some ibuprofen. Feeling a lot better now. Hopefully I'll be back to normal soon.

Well I followed your suggestion and now have bike with no wheels going no place, after I had been sat on the thing for an hour I noticed that the trip computer wasn't working.

Had that been on the road it would have been about 11 miles, so I don't know where I am with it.

So ML I have one hour peddling and I don't know if that is of any use on this journey, back on road tomorrow.

If you say you would have done 11 miles in that time grandad, of course we shall believe you :)

My counter only works on the open road, because it's linked to the front wheel, which doesn't move when it's on the stand. I have to count pedal rotations and multiply by wheel circumference to get my distance :)
