15 million mile man   Leave a comment

After travelling 15 million miles and taking 718 Concorde flights to 139 countries, a Brit tourist has become the world’s most travelled man.

Wealthy Fred Finn holds the official record for the most miles travelled by a passenger after visiting an incredible 70 per cent of the world’s 196 nations.

Fred has spent 52 years travelling the globe, during which he has covered 15 million miles ” the equivalent of travelling to the moon and back 31 times.

He has kept a detailed log of every flight and train journey he has taken, which he had counter-signed by each driver and pilot to verify his achievement.

Fred said, “I have no desire to visit any new counties now. I’ve been to more places than I could ever dream of and don’t really want to visit the remaining ones.” Fred has estimated he has flown across the Atlantic over 2,000 times.
