Russian traveler Fyodor Konyukhov, 64, reached the Australian town of Northam on Saturday, passing over the same airfield he set out from on July 12, according to ABC, a local broadcaster.
A video posted on the adventurer's instagram page shows his balloon flying over Australia.
It took approximately 11 days and six hours for the Russian traveller to fly around the world, covering 20,500 miles. Something Jules Verne's Phileas Fogg couldn't even dare dream about.
Konyukhov's record-setting flight started in Australia with his path tanking the balloonist across both the Pacific Ocean and the Southern Ocean. He flew over New Zealand, South America, the Cape of Good Hope, scathed the borders of Antarctica and safely returned to Australia.
