Around the World in 80 Days - 3

This is one of the items bought together with other things by Mr Phileas Fogg for his trip around the world in 80 days. Try to guess what this is.


Around the World in 80 Days

Summary (Chapter 3-Phileas Fogg Shocks His New Butler)



Phileas Fogg takes leave of his friends. Passepartout, who has studied the programme of his duties, is surprised to see his master guilty of the inexactness of appearing at an unaccustomed hour; for, according to rule, he is not due in Savile Row until midnight. Passerpartout is even more surprised when he is told that they will be leaving for Dover in ten minutes.



On being told that they will be going around the world, Passerpartout is completely taken aback as he has been expecting a very quiet life with his master. The butler is told that they will be travelling very light and will have no need of heavy trunks. Passepartout tries to reply to his master, but he cannot.He mechanically sets about making the preparations for departure. By eight o’clock Passepartout has packed the modest carpetbags, containing the wardrobes of his master and himself; then, still troubled in mind, he carefully shuts the door of his room, and descends to Mr Fogg.




Mr Fogg is quite ready. He carries two travel guides under his arm, one for the railways and one for the boats. He takes the carpetbag, opens it, and slips in his wallet too.Passepartout is told to take care of the carpetbag as it has 20,000 pounds in it. They step into a waiting cab that takes them directly to the railroad station. Phileas and Passepartout then find their seats in the first-class cabin. Passepartout is still in daze, he still cannot believe what is happening to him now!
