YOU may think you’ve travelled a lot, but no one — literally, no one — has travelled as much by air as 74-year-old Fred Finn, at least according to the Guinness Book of World Records. He’s visited 150 countries and now, fittingly, holds the title of “most air miles flown by a person.”

On Monday, Finn spoke with HuffPost Live about how he’s come to spend 24 million kilometres — and countless hours — up in the friendly skies.
“I was commuting when I lived in New York across the Atlantic every week for about four years,” the Brit recounted. “Eventually Concorde came out, and I took its first flight out of Washington, which meant I could connect in Nairobi or Singapore on the same day and do that same trip in nine hours instead of 18.”
