huh? What are we talking about? Automobile? Walking? Air-travel? You have to be more specific.
But 10 hours is nothing using any of the above modes of transportation.

Typically for me, their is no destination, only a journey. Take a cruise for instance - it's just one long journey that may take a week, ten days, or more.
In a more metaphysical, sense - a journey lasts a lifetime and ends when one dies.

If that's what we are talking about - air travel - I go to Asia several times a year, India or China mostly. Typical time to get there, with 1 or 2 flight changes (sucks being in the middle of the country at a non-hub) is 24 to 36 hours. At least once I missed a connection and got to spend the night in somewhere like Dubai airport - then it may take 36 to 48 hours.
I traveled by ship from Hawaii to California when I was a kid, are we talking about that? That took maybe a week, I can't remember.

40 hours from Florida to Scotland, including an unplanned overnight in Atlanta due to mechanical/weather issues on a final routing of VPS-Atlanta-Boston-Amsterdam-Edinburgh.

24 hours from Anchorage to Sydney.

Also since it wasn't clarified, we drove pulling a travel trailer from Seattle over to New York, down the east coast to Florida, west across the southern states and then back up to Eugene, OR. Took 7 months and 20,000 miles. We chose the scenic route to Eugene.

I've traveled round the sun 45 times. Each trip has taken a year to complete.
