Setting is generally the time and place of a story. The time is the easier setting to define for this story. Fogg begins his journey around the world in October of 1872. He begins his journey from his home city of London, England where he is an English gentleman. His journey is part bet and part experimental proof. It has been stated that the journey can be made, but most of Fogg's colleagues don't believe it. If you have to pick one setting location that gets more page time than any other location, then London is that setting location since the book begins and ends in London. The world is a large place, and Fogg's journey has to take him to many places that Verne simply didn't have time to write about or didn't want to write about. As for places that the story spends a fair amount of time in, Fogg's story spends a fair amount of time telling readers about Passepartout in India, San Francisco and New York in the United States, Japan, and a ship on the Pacific ocean.
