Round the World Passage 2011

Round the World Passage 2011

This challenge is the brain child of member Tien H
*only two changes have been made from the original...I up the max mileage by 10k and there is a set time frame

Round the World Passage
January 1, 2011 - December 31, 2011

This idea is a combination of the 7 continents / Olympic challenges and Round the World Tickets (real tickets you can purchase to travel round the world).

Read a book (or more if you’d like to) that is located in certain city / country or by an author of that city / country. You decide which city / country you’d like to ‘visit’ however the following conditions (similar to the RTW tickets) apply:

1. Maximum Mileage: 50,000 miles* (Unlimited stops – see how generous I am) with a minimum of 20,000 miles (5 stops)
2. The start and end of the journey have to be located in the same country
3. Choose a direction you’d like to take (East or West only) mainly when jumping continents, you can go north & south when you're within a continent
4. One crossing each of the Atlantic and Pacific must be included in the itinerary (but only one crossing allowed over each)
5. Do not to backtrack within a continent - the idea is to keep that forward motion

*To help you in calculating your mileage, the below site may be useful:

My trip:
starting in New York: Possession in Death by J.D. Robb 1/3/2011 miles traveled 0
Georgia: The Color Purple by Alice Walker 1/19/11 miles traveled 737
California: In Sheep's Clothing by Mary Monroe 01/29/11 miles traveled 3015
