Airbnb is launching a brand new holiday where explorers can visit 18 countries across six continents in just 80 days.
The trip is inspired by Jules Verne's iconic novel Around the World in 80 Days, following in the footsteps of the novel's protagonist Phileas Fogg (although without all of the drama he faces during throughout the story).
The holiday includes heaps of novel-worthy experiences such as thrilling safaris in Africa, breathtaking temples in Asia, ancient citadels such as Petra in Jordan, walking across glaciers in Iceland and trekking in Australia's Outback.
The once-in-a-lifetime trip costs £4,057 per person on Airbnb Experiences which includes your accommodation, flights, transport, food and soft drinks.
Oh, and just like Phileas Fogg, you'll start and end the journey in London.
It's worth noting that you'll need to buy your own return flights from London, but any flights you need to take during the holiday itself will be covered in the package price.
You'll want to book quickly though as there are limited spaces (unsurprisingly, it's proving popular with intrepid explorers).
The trip is taking place later this year, kicking off on the 1st September 2019 with a return date of the 19th November.
Countries you'll be exploring include Romania, Uzbekistan, Egypt, Jordan, Ethiopia, Kenya , Nepal, Bhutan, Thailand, China, Australia , New Zealand, USA, Ecuador, Chile and Iceland.
Accommodation will include everything from houseboats to hotels and campsites, so you can immerse yourself in the local culture wherever you're visiting.
Not bad for a 12-week trip.
