How long does it take to travel around the world?
If the earth were completely dry, with no oceans separating continents, one could walk around the planet, travelling day and night at a steady pace, in less than a year. But if you were a tidal wave, you could cross the earth in 60 hours. If you were a Boeing 747 jet and could fly nonstop around the earth, your trip would take about 44 hours. - bigsiteofamazingfacts.com; wiki.answers.com; thetravellerslounge.co.uk
