Since I am replaying the game right now, I started to wonder just how many days did actually the whole story take?

Day 1 - Start of the game in Dream Zanarkand
Day 2 - Getting to Besaid
Day 3 - Kilika's temple
Day 4 - Luca
Day 5 - Chocobo eater, operation Mi'Hen
Day 6 - Off to Moonflow
Day 7 - Now I don't really remember if the party actually slept there or just spent some time... I will go on as if they didn't sleep so it would be all the way from Djose to Macalania and killing Seymour
Day 8 - Bikanel, the wedding
Day 9 - Calm Lands
Day 10 - Zanarkand
Day 11 - Beating Sin

I am pretty sure I missed a sleep there somewhere at least once, so please do correct me.

But anyway that means the whole journey took about two weeks. That doesn't sound very long now does it? There is really no deeper point to this thread though, I just wonder.

I'm pretty sure there are nights that aren't shown in cutscenes. Traversing an entire world in two actual weeks on foot is pretty unrealistic, even for a game.

Well considering they are all stronger individuals, individual drive to succeed and surpass the other pilgrimages made by other summoners, Auron's attitude, and they use ships, the airship, shoopuf, and maybe chocobo.

Edit:

I think you should seperate Bikanel and Bevelle assuming they spent a night in prison. You could even stretch to a bit more than two days.

Edit:

I think you forgot Thunder Plains inn.

They are, but they are still never shown to move faster along the ground than regular humans do.

Don't forget Sin farted on them an magick'd them to the desert for some reason. Extremely helpful for long journeys

Well while being unrealistic, I don't really think there are unshown nights in the game. Seriously where would you fit them? Can you imagine Auron staying at in for two days or something? Me not.

I'd wager it took a lot longer than that. Several areas in the game feel like they actually take quite some time to traverse, and aren't over and done with as quickly as you play through them yourself. Sanubia Desert for instance I could imagine taking days or weeks to cross till you get to Home. Not to mention who knows how long the Al Bhed took to figure out ancient machina and use them to locate Yuna in Bevelle. Judging by the fact that a wedding had been arranged and almost carried out in the meantime, it might have been quite a considerable span of time.

All in all, it might've been somewhere between 1-2 months, if I had to guess.

Because that's exactly what happened, right? Sin didn't just, y'know, take them over to Bikanel itself, like it has been shown to be perfectly capable of doing - twice no less - at the beginning of the game.

It was a Spoony Experiment reference from when he riffed on this game :P A cut scene with Sin, gas happens, then they're in the desert. However explainable it might be, his version makes me chuckle more. "Sin shows up... farts on them! Then all of a sudden they're in a desert."
