Phileas Fogg Gets His Man

About how Phileas Fogg embarks on a quest for a companion for his voyages and finds Mr Right


It was the end of the summer of 1987 and the ballooning season was coming to a close. Phileas Fogg had had a good year, culminating in the discovery of Punjab Puri during his stay in India. Indeed so popular was it that all the Indian newsagents in London were clamouring for the stuff.

Come to think of it since 1982 he had made quite a few successful finds during his quest for first class snacks from around the world. Tortilla Chips and Corn Chips were firm favourites with London's Dandy set and the halitosis caused by the garlicky Mignons Morceaux was becoming acceptably fashionable. Even the exotic Shanghai Nuts were being consumed in vast quantities in ale houses and hostelries.
