"Graham Hughes, 33, arrived in South Sudan early Monday, capping off his 1,426-day journey. A Liverpool native, Hughes traveled 160,000 miles using only buses, boats, taxis, trains and his own two feet, the Monitor said. He also managed the trip on less than $100 a week."

Where do I get a job like that?

Probably in Indiana.

Magellan circumnavigated the globe. That doesn't mean he made local stops.

footnote: hobos don't either , but did you know that Xmarks the spot comes from the hobo?

when ever a hobo got a hand out from a home etc etc . he put a chalk marked x on the curb to alert the fellow hobo .... this is a good spot for food
