Find a hotel or something that has that type of courtyard. Go there and loudly declare that you are claiming this land. Start shooing people off of your property. You'll take care of both of these at once.

Think bigger, how about around the world without flying? (It is possible, and includes the Trans-Siberian railway.)


I don't think I could do something like that all at once. I have social tolerance limits and I think the Trans-Siberian trip is pretty long as it is. Apparently, I can start in London.

The rough bit would be crossing the Pacific - 2 weeks (ish) on a cargo ship that take passengers. Seat 61 is a great website - every time I look at it I see things I'd like to do if I had the time...
