Let's say that you start at a point, for naming's sake, we will call it A'ville. You walk a total of 5 metres forward and have a rest. You then walk 3 metres backwards (ie. back towards A'ville) and have another rest. You set out again and walk a further 10 metres forward and take a much longer rest after such a long journey. You then take another walk of 5 metres backwards and take your final rest, before completing your very strange journey walking a final 3 metres forward and reach your destination of B'ville.

The question is: How far have you travelled since departing A'ville?
