First Round-the-World Pub Crawl Begins March '08

    PERTH, Australia, Nov. 6 /CNW/ - The first round-the-world pub crawl has
been set for departure on March 24, 2008 from London, offering travellers a
month-long party across four continents.
    It covers 11 worldwide destinations: London, Munich, Prague, Reykjavik,
Dusseldorf, tiny Maria Alm in Austria, Phuket, Auckland and Queenstown in New
Zealand, Honolulu and Cancun.
    Arranged by Australian touring company Thirsty Swagman, the "Around the
World in 60 Pubs" tour will visit more than 60 of the world's best pubs and
    "This tour is the ultimate adventure to the finest nightlife destinations
on earth, without any boring sightseeing or early wakeups" said Kenneth Hart,
founder of Thirsty Swagman Pty Ltd.
    "Those who embark on this journey will have a story to tell for life.
Nothing even close to this has ever been done before, anywhere or anytime."
    The idea of a round-the-world pub crawl was first announced in April and
quickly gained world-wide attention. Now that a date and the destinations have
been set, the company will finalize bookings by December 31. The tour is
limited to just 25 people.
    "We chose all the destinations because of their reputation for nightlife
and choice of pubs and bars" said Karen Logan, Media and Online Manager at
Thirsty Swagman. "Every place we visit offers something totally unique, and no
2 pubs will ever be the same. From the longest bar on earth in Germany to live
music pubs in Thailand, every night is action packed."
    The tour includes all flights from London, 3-star accommodation incl.
breakfast, all land-based transportation, entry to pubs and bars with discount
drinks at some, video production, t-shirts, and an official certificate for
completing the first ever round-the-world pub crawl. The price in Australian
dollars is $11,900.
