Share Your Experience: The Longest Journey You've Ever Made. by Nobody: 8:42am On Dec 17, 2013
Travelling is one of the most interesting hobbies/events that everybody likes, if not, is what majority like. Hence, experiencing new culture, sightening , meeting new people and feeling of atmosheric weather condition of other places are what make it very interesting.

However, inspite of all these interesting part, it could be so frustrating atimes as many people still hate sitting inside a car or plane for hours.. Anyways, some may still love it.

Feel free to share your experience. What is the most distanced (hrs) journey you've ever made, either on road or air ? Were you really comfortable with it? Do you like travelling on a long distance? smileysmiley smiley

Lagos - New York via London, 24hours biological clock time!
I have also done Benin - Maiduguri, 2 days because I slept in Abuja, was able to enjoy the scenery of Jos, Kaduna, Bauchi, Yobe grin

Yer, in 2010, I was stranded in Spain during the infamous Ash Cloud (due to my own stubborness). I needed to be in London urgently, Heathrow was closed, no airline flew that route only Iberia, so I jumped on board, and ended up in Madrid for 2 days, no bath, no change of clothes! When Heathrow finally opened, I succumbed to sleep and missed the first flight to London. When we finally got to London, there was Eko market at the airport we had to sit on the floor waiting through passport control.

Looking back now, it was worth the experience, at least I have a story to tell. cheesy

[b]Longest journey I have ever done lasted 8 months.

Started from San Diego, Ca. Stopped at Hawaii for about 4 days, then left and spent 3 days in Saipan. After

that, we spent 4 days in Guam. Spent 3 days in the Philippines and then 1 wonderful week in Hong Kong.

Left Hong Kong and spent 5 days in Singapore, then 3 days in India. From India to our destination Irag, I

think we must have spent about 6 months in Iraq or something like that. Turned around to head back to

the united states but stopped at Bahrain, then Dubai, before we left the Gulf but passed through the Suez

canal that splits Egypt and Isreal while exiting the gulf. Then we spent 5 days in Malta, Italy, then Gibraltar.

Then passed through Panama canal and voila home sweet home. Man we actually stopped at more countries

but i cant remember them all. here is a pic of my world cruise jacket that i bought during the cruise it doesn't have all the

countries we stopped at because they wanted to charge me an extra 130 dollars to put them all. [/b]

Mine was from Sydney to Darwin both in Australia. It was a five days journey by train with several brief stopovers. I had my legs swollen , and was exhausted at the end of the journey. It was fun anyway but I doubt if I will ever make this kind of journey again. I drained my pocket for a flight back to Sydney.
