|Our path around the world starting in Indy. 14 airports in 14 days.|
That's the question we got from our waitress at dinner the other night when the subject of travel came up and we indicated that we had traveled rather extensively. I don't think we've ever had that particular question. We always get "What's your favorite place?" or "Have you ever been to________?" (Italy and probably, respectively). But the way this question was phrased was a new one. "How far...?" My initial response was, "As far as we could, because once we had gone so far, we were on your way home."
I was thinking of the classic riddle:
How far can you walk into the woods? The answer: Half way. After that you're walking out of the woods.
That was the case on a trip back in 2010 that took us around the world (see the accompanying flight path nearby). Ann wrote about it in a previous Excellent Adventure post. Now, even though we can officially say we joined the Circumnavigator's Club, I suppose we didn't technically go as far away as physically possible on the planet. That would be the exact opposite side of the globe from Indianapolis; a point somewhere in
|The farthest away spot. Flight 370? Maybe. Ann & John? No.|
It is an intriguing question, nonetheless. So we'll ask you. How far away have you traveled?
