Weekend Getaway is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. For the puzzle in the European version of the game, go here.


You and your girlfriend went on a road trip over the weekend. On the way to your destination, you drove 180 miles, and your girlfriend drove the rest of the way.

Coming home on exactly the same roads, your girlfriend drove the first 150 miles and then you got behind the wheel for the last leg of the journey.

So what is the difference in miles between the distance you drove and the distance your girlfriend drove?


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Distances both to and from your destination were exactly the same. On the way there, you drove 180 miles, and on the way home, you drove one way minus 150 miles.

Think about the distance your girlfriend drove. On the way there, she drove one way minus 180 miles. On the way home, she drove 150 miles.

The total distance each person drove must include the trip out and the trip back. If you combine the earlier information about each leg of the trip, you'll see that your girlfriend drove a total of "one way minus 30 miles."

Using the principle in Hint Two and the information from Hint One, you can express the distance you drove as "one way plus 30 miles."

With that said, the difference between the distance you drove and the distance your girlfriend drove should be clear as day.



Too bad!

Think you need to draw up a formula to solve this one? Think again. Finding the solution is simpler than you'd imagine.


That's right!

As shown in the above chart, your girlfriend drove a total of one way minus 30 miles. You drove a total of one way plus 30 miles. Therefore, you drove 60 more miles.
