    Traveling the world, in 2 weeks

    Hypothetical question, with all expenses paid, you get to travel all over the world for 2 weeks.
    now since there's so much variation in flight time and distances, we'll just say you get to stay in one country for 12hrs, flight included, for a total of 28 countries all over the world.

    which of the roughly 190 countries would you visit and where would you like to go in that country?
    we'll just assume you can only visit 2~4 places in each country before your time is up.

    or you can just lot up your 336hrs how you like.

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    seeing as you won't experience much of anything in 12 hours, this is a pointless exercise.

    well, you can divide up the time how you'd like it, but you're limited to 336hrs

    Nonsense. Just pick the country you'd want to go to the most. Then tour embassy row in that country (the embassies are technically foreign soil). You could hang out in your preferred country, and reset the clock every 12 hrs by visiting another embassy. Unfortunately, this would confine you to the capital so you would be extremely limited in what you could do. With that in mind, I would go to Russia.

    not true...as most brothels have more than one girl, and there's usually more than one brothel per town.
