Travelers to Set World Record by Touching All Seven Continents in 72 Hours



LOS ANGELES, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, Dec. 13, American travel photographers Kasey Stewart and Julie Berry will takeoff from Sydney, Australia in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record by touching all seven continents in 72 hours. If all goes to plan, and no travel delays, the two will traverse across the world and arrive on King George Island, Antarctica the morning of Dec. 16 as world record holders. The current minimum to set a Guinness World Record record for "Fastest to touch all seven continents" is five days.

Last year, after stepping foot in Antarctica, Stewart achieved his lifelong goal of traveling to all seven continents. "As a little kid, I always wanted to go to all seven continents because I wanted to touch the corners of the earth and get a taste of every part of the world," Stewart says. "After I did that last December, I felt like I had barely scratched the surface and wanted to push myself to do something bigger."

The route they will take is:
Sydney, Australia
Dubai, UAE
Cairo, Egypt
Frankfurt, Germany
Toronto, Canada
Santiago, Chile,
Punta Arenas, Chile
King George Island, Antarctica

The total estimated elapsed time to touch all seven continents will be 72-79 hours dependent upon weather for the last flight to Antarctica. The two will spend almost 50 hours in an airplane and have on average 3-6 hours on each continent. They will be leaving the airport on each continent for activities that include a limo ride through Dubai, having a drink and local cuisine in a tavern in Frankfurt, the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo, viewing Toronto from the CN Tower and winter shopping for Antarctica in Santiago. Quark Expeditions, the worldwide leader in polar expeditions, is sponsoring their final flight to the seventh continent, Antarctica.
