British Who Visited 150 Countries to Become most Travelled Man. Fred Finn, who has visited 150 countries and spent 16 million miles and countless hours up in the skies, holds the title of \"most air miles flown by a person\" in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Washington: Fred Finn, who has visited 150 countries and spent 16 million miles and countless hours up in the skies, holds the title of "most air miles flown by a person" in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The 74-year-old Brit said that he was commuting when he lived in New York across the Atlantic every week for about four years, the Huffington Post reported.
The Brit added that eventually Concorde came out and he took its first flight out of Washington, which meant he could connect in Nairobi or Singapore on the same day and do that same trip in nine hours instead of 18.
The international businessman, who used to have three passports attached to each other, all with valid visas stamps, but today only carries a U.S. and British passport and oftentimes asks to forego stamps to save space, added that he lives most of his time in the Ukraine and the longer he can hang onto one passport, the better.
Finn, who claims to be "the number one writer on TripAdvisor" with "like 43,000 followers," continued that every country he has been to, he has actually either worked in or stayed there.
He explained that he thinks layovers in airports are hardly business in the country and people have got to go out into the country and see it to say that they've been there.
