I looked at my Virtual Walk directions this morning and realised that I haven’t done a proper Virtual Walk update since 2nd January. Yes, I did mention it in my 101 in 1001 update in March but apart from that, nothing.
And, yes, I have directions for my Virtual Walk. I am walking from York, being my home city, to Walt Disney World. I am measuring it “as the crow flies” which is a grand total of 6,882 km (4,301 miles, approx) and that is quite far enough, thank you. But, I am plotting it on a map too. I walked from York to Clifden on the east coast of Ireland, I can’t remember how far that was, and then I got directions from Google from Mary’s Harbour, NL, Canada to Animal Kingdom (because that is the park we always visit first). I chose Mary’s Harbour because it was kind of a straight line from Clifden to there on the map. The distance from Mary’s Harbour to Animal Kingdom is 4,334 km so I started plotting my route and distance travelled in North America once I’d walked 2,548 km.
Anyway, since my last update in January I have walked another 700.07 km giving a total of 5,775.84 km completed and 1,106.16 km to go. I have now completed 3,227.84 km in North America and have now left Jersey City, passed through Newark, NJ, gone around Philadelphia, PA on my way to Baltimore, MD. I then went through Washington DC, I should have stopped to have a look around, to Richmond, VA. I am now in North Carolina heading towards either Durham or Raleigh.
OK, that’s it. I’ll try to give a better update next time and maybe find out some information about the places I’ve “walked” through.
