Steppin’ it

Date: August 10, 2017 | By: bigfive | Category: Travel Blog

As much of the travel industry begins to descend on Las Vegas for one of the premier, weeklong travel shows, we took a minute to look back at last year’s event in terms of the amount of steps we took during that time. One of our team actually wore a pedometer last year, curious to see just how far he had walked. After this year long pedometer test, it turns out that he walked some 20,000 steps a day times seven days for a whopping 140,000 steps a week.

The unique turn of mind we have here at Big Five naturally led us to wonder how far that would take us if we were climbing Egypt’s pyramids. Yes, we tend to look at things a bit differently here, but isn’t that why you love us? Back to pyramids.

There are about 120 pyramids in Egypt. The average standard for pyramid heights is some 481 feet, which equals roughly 1,270 steps. That means you could choose to skip Las Vegas, board a plane, fly to Cairo and climb 110 of Egypt’s 120 pyramids. (No, we are not telling you to do that. We need our friends to stay OUT of trouble). It is up to you of course to decide which sounds like more fun. If you want to think about that for a while, visit our Egypt page for inspiration.

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing many of you in Nevada shortly. Safe journeys.
