A - I'm talking with 90-year-old Phil Andrews who leaves tomorrow on a trip around the world.  He's hoping to set a new world record.  He'll be the oldest man to travel around the world. 
How do you feel, Phil?

B - I feel great.  I'm excited about the trip.  

A - How are you going to travel?

B - International Airlines is sponsoring my trip.  They're letting me fly free for this month because, thanks to reporters like you, they're getting publicity in return.   

A - What countries are you visiting on the trip?

B - I'm stopping in Portugal where I hope to spend a day relaxing on the beach.  In Egypt I'm going to spend a day seeing the Egyptian pyramids.  I'm stopping in India where I hope to see the Taj Majal.  In Thailand I'm going to spend some time in Bangkok.  I'm also stopping in Hawaii to spend a day surfing.
