Above is a map of the world. Click on it and take a ganders at the distance we've covered so far. It's a lot. Especially when you consider that Australia is like a normal country but stretched like plasticine to about 10 times the size it needs to be. Which means it takes ages to get anywhere. Still, I think someone said that the getting there is the best part of travelling. Obviously they hadn't spent 12 hours on an overnight Greyhound coach from Sydney to Melbourne but there you go. I'm sure they were just trying to be profound.
