    I think maybe going down the location route is a little obvious though.

    Unfortunately lists are not allowed to be used so you will have to find a different way.

    Nope that's good. I have a shorter route though.

    Wikipedia>Alaska>Petroleum>Gasolin>Petroleum Jelly>Rubik's Cube

    You were in first though so chose a new subject.

    Well, not shure it's right, but let me try:

    Wikipedia first page -> English -> Contents -> List of topics -> Natural and physical sciences -> Evolution -> Dinasaurs -> Tyrannosaurus -> T.rex ( disambiguation ) -> Tyrannasorus rex

    9 clicks, shurely you can do better :)

    Janez Drnovšek
    , try finding that.

    Not a legal solution - lists and topic pages aren't allowed. (Disambiguation pages are fair game)

    Main page -> River Thames -> Oxford -> University of Oxford -> Tyrannosaurus -> T.rex (disambiguation) -> Tyrannasorus rex

    Main page -> Russia -> Cuban Missile Crisis -> Fidel Castro -> Janez_Drnovšek

    Find Isabella_Rossellini
