Of course, as the "Great Circle Mapper" site reminded me, my "circle" may not be quite as round as I was thinking it would be because the flights will probably take the northern route shown on this awesome image below:
Still, it is rather fun to see that this trip will go in some kind of loop around the world.
I talked about this in one of my "The Dan York Report" podcasts this morning:
I mentioned a "write-on" globe that I use to show where I will be traveling for my kids. While I bought it at the headquarters of Delorme Maps up in Freeport, Maine, the globe itself turns out to be made by Replogle as the "Geographer Globe". You can probably find it in stores that sell globes or on various online sites. Here is one link to buy it on Amazon.com, although you may be able to find it at other places for less.
It's been fun to use that globe to give my family a sense of where I am going.
It also serves to remind me of just how long I'm going to be in airborne metal tubes! :-(
 In full disclosure, this link to Amazon is an "associate" link. If you were to actually purchase the globe, I would make a tiny amount of money for the referral. If you think that has any influence on my writing about it, you obviously don't know me well. :-)
