How Far From Bonheur to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Bonheur to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> from Bonheur to:

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that begins at Bonheur. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Bonheur) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bonheur. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bonheur

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Bonheur to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 316.81 degrees.
