Day 1,885: The Last Post

Fri 28.02.14:

It’s taken over a YEAR of deliberation, but it’s official: Guinness World Records have sent me notification that I am, without a shadow of a doubt, the first person to visit every country in the world without flying.

From Day One I billed The Odyssey Expedition as a “Guinness World Record breaking adventure” and now all my hopes and dreams, everything I strived, fought and pushed for for over 5 years has been validated. I have it.

Guinness World Records have FINALLY granted me my very own, unique, never-been-seen-before World Record Certificate. And here it is:

Guinness World Record Certificate


So certificate in hand I headed down to the Pier Head in Liverpool, gathered my family and friends and filmed this – the final shot of The Odyssey Expedition. Here it is, 5 years in the making….


Well I did it. I F—ING WELL DID IT!!! That’s it. The Odyssey Expedition is (well and truly) complete!

Now it’s time to tune your internets into my new adventure: JINJA ISLAND!!!

I’ll see you there 🙂

  1. Graham- good for u! overcame all the little nasty troubles that come with big dreams. I hope my friend can join you as a GWR holder… he’s in a wheelchair and wants to be the first person to visit every country without walking. He will fly though. He’s been to about 40 so far… I’ll keep you in the loop

  2. So I have already read every single one of your blogs from the first one to this one, (including all of you rants). I must say that you are an inspiration and I dream to do a fraction of what you have accomplished. I’m currently rereading your blogs from the beginning just because they’re that fascinating. Cheers from Canada and all the best. PS congrats on winning SOS Island!
