Blog: Olly WehringAround the world in 60 pubs

Olly Wehring | 7 November 2007

A round-the-world pub crawl, spanning 11 worldwide destinations across four continents, is set to kick off next March.

Australian touring company Thirsty Swagman said today (7 November) that the 'Around the World in 60 Pubs' tour will offer travellers a month-long party, across London, Munich, Prague, Reykjavik, Dusseldorf, Maria Alm in Austria, Phuket, Auckland and Queenstown in New Zealand, Honolulu and Cancun.

The crawl, beginning in London in March, will be “the ultimate adventure to the finest nightlife destinations on earth, without any boring sightseeing or early wakeups," according to Thirsty Swagman founder Kenneth Hart.

Hart added: "Those who embark on this journey will have a story to tell for life. Nothing even close to this has ever been done before, anywhere or anytime."

The package is inclusive of flights from London, three-star accommodation including breakfast, all land-based transportation, entry to pubs and bars with discount drinks at some, video production, t-shirts, and an official certificate for completing the round-the-world pub crawl.

The event will be priced at AUS$11,900 (US$11,172).

Thirsty Swagman may be interested to know that just-drinks would be happy to cover this event in a journalistic capacity. Reluctant, of course, but happy all the same.
