Ever wonder how far you are going to go?
here is a great link to discover the distance between where I am and you are. This tool determines the distance between major points on the globe (based on airport codes).
What I find interesting is that many common far off developing country destinations (ie Central America) are actually closer to me in Calgary than my birthplace Corner Brook, Newfoundland is.
We tend to think of travelling across the world in terms of distance travelled, but there is something more to crossing culture than kilometres.
