Monopoly in Canberra

Monopoly in Canberra

During the past week, I had a road trip to Canberra to visit my friends. The highlight of the trip was simply: Monopoly game.

Our American friend Don has a number of trips back and forth between beautiful Boston and reputable Rochester. According to him, that was almost 650km drive, as for my drive, it was far less than 300km each way.

Unlike some secretive individuals, I decided to track my own route with the Sony GPS tracker. My return route is shown below.

By importing the logged GPS data to computer, Sony GPS Image Tracker shows me the route I made which is quite interesting. (The map is provided by Google Map.)

This is my return route. Since I am not in hurry, I made some detours including stopping in Goulburn, visiting Honeybear in Ingleburn and stopping at Rev. Dr. Wu Yi's place for the Vienna bread on the way back home.

BTW, I did not win the Monopoly game.

2.5 times qualifies "a number of trips"?

Although it was not my first time to Canberra, but it was my first time driving to Canberra. In comparison, I don't do long drives often.
