2hrs at heathrow
13hrs heathrow - hong kong
4hrs HK airport
11hrs Hong kong - Auckland
5hrs Auk Airport

My longest trip was from Bonaire/Netherlands Antilles to Auckland/NZ
Bonaire to Aruba
I left on a Wednesday morning and arrived at NZ Saturday noon.
Flying home same endless flight...
Pattaya, Thailand to Berlin, Germany for the World Cup. I had virtually run out of time so could barely stop on the way back. Think shortest theoretical time is 19days, give or take, and i did it in about 25.
Pattaya - Bangkok - O/N to Nong Khia - Vientienne - Luang Prabang - Oudomxay - Luang Namtha - via Mengla to Mohan then O/N to Kunming - O/N to Chengdu - O/N to Xi'an. O/N to Beijing (arrive 2days early as have to collect ticket on Fri, and train leaves Sun night). 3x O/N to Irkutsk. 2x O/N to Tyumen, 2x O/N to Moscow, O/N to Riga, Vilnius - Klaipeda, O/N on ferry to Karlshamn, Sweden, Kobenhavn, Hamburg, Berlin.
((I know that distance wise it's not as long as many, but as I don't fly, in terms of time taken and to be somewhere on time as opposed to on a joly - like on the way over which took about 15months - then that was my longest))
I took the Indian Pacific train from Sydney to Perth - two and a half days! It was a pretty interesting experience but probably not one i'd repeat. We had to sleep in our seats and two nights sleeping in chairs was hard going.
I flew from someplace in Europe(cant remember which country) to Thailand.
From Utrecht, Holland, to Auckland, New Zealand, with garuda airways. Via singapore, jakarta and bali. total around 40 hours. The same for a train journey from Utrecht to Kiev, Ukraine.
From Klagenfurt (Austria) to Frankfurt 1,5hrs (or so)
Frankfurt airport 8hrs
Frankfurt - Singapore 12hrs (? can't remember)
Singapore- Auckland (NZ) another 12hrs (or so)
(+ 12hrs time difference, if that counts *g*)
the trip took me approx.2days
