It's all about location.
anything other than a perfect circumnavigation would require the observer to walk in a curved path rather than a straight line.
you would still have passed where you started after 25,000 miles. so you did end up there, briefly.
only at the equator or prime meridian.
you start at 75 latitude and head straight east, it will be a much much shorter trip
