AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS (JULES VERNE)

Based on Around The World In 80 Days written by Jules Verne, I would like to write on [refer question]
INTRODUCTION

As we know, this story is set in 1867 when a wealthy but meticulous gentleman, Phileas Fogg accepted a wager from his fellow friend that he could complete a journey to circumnavigate the world in only 80 days. If he and his French butler, Passepartout did not reach London on the exact time, he would lose his 20,000-pound-bet.

On Foggs and his friends way to Allahabad by train, they had to stop and continue the journey on foot due to the 50 miles incomplete railway track. Rather than giving up, he was calm and tried his best to find a way and solve the problem. After driving a hard bargain, he managed to buy an elephant named Kiouni. Later, he hired Ali as their guide and continued the adventurous journey on elephant.

EVENT 2

Saving Aouda

Brave (bravery) / Kind (kindness) / Thoughtful (thoughtfulness) Helpful / Helping others Important event (incident) / event (incident) that I like the most / suspense event / interesting event

After riding for a while, they stopped and rested under a banana tree. Out of the blue, they heard a loud noise. They saw a group of bandits pulling over a beautiful girl. Right at that time, Fogg made a drastic decision to save her. Finally, after a combative fight with the ruthless bandits, the girl was saved.

1. I love this event because it taught me that we should always be helpful and help people in need. For instance, Fogg was willing to help the poor girl and risk his life saving her even though she was a total stranger to him. 2. From this event, I learnt to be a brave person. For instance, Fogg was a brave person as he was willing to help the poor girl and risk his life saving her even though he knew that the bandits was cruel. He taught me that we should always be brave and fight crime. 3. In this event, the element of kindness is clearly shown when Fogg was willing to help the poor girl and risk his life saving her even though she was a total stranger to him.

EVENT 3 Hanrietta

When Fogg missed China, a steamer to Liverpool, rather than giving up, he tried his best to solve the problem. Fogg persuaded a captain of a steamer called Hanrietta but he refused (but to no avail). Luckily, he agreed to take them to Bordeaux. On the way, Fogg bribed the crew to change the course to Liverpool and he was succeed. Unfortunately, they ran out of coal. Without any other option, Fogg met the locked captain and offered him a handsome money to buy Hanrietta. Later, he ordered the crew to burn all the woods in the ship so that they could continue the cruise.

WHY?

Determined (determination) Never giving up Resourceful

1. I love this event because it taught me that we should always be helpful and help people in need. For instance, Fogg was in order to achieve success, we must have strong will and determination. For instance, Fogg did not gave up when he missed China or even when they ran out of coal. Instead, he remained calm and thought of a way to solve it. 2. This event also showed me that there would always a solution for every problem. All we have to do is to think a little harder or even out of the box and make use of everything around us. 3. In this event, Fogg once again showed us that he was a determined person. When he missed China, he did not gave up but tried other alternative to reach Liverpool. He was also a determined person when he was willing to buy the steamer even though it costed him a fortune so he could continue the journey.

Whatever the question is, do not panic!! The answer is there, all you have to do is to think a little harder and make use of these three events. You can do it!
