Twice round the world by train for Reevoo

I just realised I forgot to celebrate my second Reevoo birthday.

So to make up for that I just worked out (not very scientifically) that in the 2 years 2 months I’ve been working at Reevoo, I’ve travelled almost twice round the world by GNER train. And that doesn’t include my travel on London commuter trains, tubes & buses…

Distance from Durham to London Kings Cross = 232 miles as the crow flies1.

Journeys per week = 2

Number of weeks (excluding holidays) = 48 + 48 + 8 = 104

Total distance travelled = 104 * 2 * 232 = 48,256 miles

Earth’s circumference = 24,901 miles according to About.com

Twice round the world = 2 * 24,901 = 49,802 miles

Anyway, I’m tired and that was tricky maths, so I’ve probably made a mistake. Probably time to go to bed.
