Tuesday/ two stops and 10,343 miles

Here’s a map that I generated with Great Circle Mapper for my upcoming trip to Perth, Australia, with stops in Tokyo and in Hong Kong.  The route looks a lot different than one plotted on a flat, projected map of Earth’s surface !

Our departure direction from Seattle to Tokyo will be NW, even though Tokyo is at a lower latitude than Seattle. From Tokyo it is SW on to Hong Kong, and from there Perth is due South.
