Married couple from Wales – 62-year-old Clive and 60-year-old Jane Green – returned home after the holiday, which began 16 years ago. Originally planned to organize a week-long love touring Ireland and Spain, at the same time experiencing a 35-pound sailboat, but in the end, they traveled around the world and toured more than 50 countries.

The couple left the Wales 11 July 1998. Having been in Spain, they decided not to return home and continued on their way. So, for two years they have been in Portugal, Gibraltar, the Canary Islands, Cape Verde and Barbados, reports The Daily Mail . For 2000 Greens visited many islands in the Caribbean: St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Antigua and Barbuda, and Venezuela. Then another couple visited 17 countries, including the United States and Canada.

Weekly travelers they spent about 130 pounds (about 216 dollars). According to Jane Green, they often had to share different things. The most profitable exchange, she told occurred in Fiji. “None of the tribe did not speak in English and it was very difficult for anything to exchange. Then one of the women showed me her breasts and I realized that they needed a bra. I gave her my spare, and in return we got a lot of fruits and vegetables we were their last the whole month, “- said Green.

The couple have no children, the newspaper notes, and for the sake of traveling, they had early retirement – Clive worked in one of the utility companies, and Jane – in the hospital. His home in Abergavenny, a town in the south of Wales, Greens rented.
