Plan your trip to a far away spot on the globe. You might wish to walk in a straight line
or maybe just take the shortest route
(other than, perhaps, digging
). Take your camera in case you pass one of these
Its all to do with great circles
and rhumb lines
I think. We have talked about confluences before
but the project still has about 5,000 on land, to be visited so I thought they could do with another mention.
I was delighted to notice that a journey due south from Edinburgh would take me to the west of Liverpool and onwards to Timbuktu.
