Thunberg & # 39; s transatlantic odyssey
August 14: Set sail from Plymouth, England.
August 28: Arrives in New York, USA.
She takes over Washington, D.C. Montreal, Quebec, Iowa City, Iowa, Standing Rock Indian Reservation, South Dakota, Denver, Colorado, Vancouver, British Columbia and finally Los Angeles, California.
She planned to travel south to Chile for the COP25 climate summit, but due to political unrest it was moved to Madrid.
& # 39; It appears that I traveled halfway around the world in the wrong way & # 39 ;, she tweeted in November.
November 13: Set sail from Hampton, Virginia.
December 3: Arrives in Lisbon, Portugal.
December 9: Participates in a massive rally in Madrid for COP25.
December 13th: Friday for future protest in Turin, Italy.
December 14: Train from Basel, Switzerland, north through Germany.
December 17: Post photo with her dogs in Stockholm (& # 39; Home! & # 39;)
During the epic voyage, she saw the Atlantic Ocean cross over from the UK to America before visiting cities in the US and Canada and returning to Portugal earlier this month.
From there she went by train to a climate summit in Spain – which ended without agreement – before visiting Turin and Basel on her way back to Sweden.
She celebrated her return on Tuesday by posing with her dogs, Mozes and Roxy.
During her last climate protest in Turin, Italy, she threatened to put & # 39; world leaders against the wall & # 39; if they ran away from their climate obligations.
She later apologized for the comment made after the Madrid summit, claiming that a Swedish expression was lost in translation.
& # 39; I said yesterday that we should hold our leaders accountable and unfortunately said "put them against the wall". That is the English language: & # 39; att ställa någon mot väggen & # 39; (putting someone against the wall) means keeping someone responsible. That's what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language. & # 39; Mrs. Thunberg wrote.
& # 39; But of course I'm sorry if someone misunderstood this. I cannot express enough that I – like the entire school strike movement – am against any form of violence. It goes without saying, but I will say so anyway. & # 39;
And that followed the heels of another controversial Twitter storm after Thunberg was named & # 39; person of the year & # 39 ;.

The Thunberg odyssey began when she left Plymouth, England on August 14 and arrived in New York at the end of that month. She then went to Los Angeles to prepare for a trip to Chile for the COP25. But her plans changed when the conference was moved to Madrid and she sailed from Hampton, Virginia on November 13 and arrived in Lisbon, Portugal on December 3
President Donald Trump – who received the award in 2016 – tweeted that she & # 39; anger management issues & # 39; and said she had to & # 39; chill & # 39 ;.
Thunberg responded by changing her Twitter bio and chilling the words & # 39; currently & # 39; to include.
The Thunberg voyage through Germany was the final leg of a continental voyage that began when she traveled to New York with a low-emission yacht in August.
The 16-year-old activist started a worldwide movement last year when she started leaving school every Friday to protest against government inactivity with regard to climate change.
She refused to fly and has crossed the Atlantic twice by boat in recent months to speak at a UN climate summit in New York and the hastily arranged COP25 summit in Madrid.
Thunberg, who last attended the COP25 climate summit in Madrid, had a rocky trip home after she flew to Europe & # 39; s largest railway operator on Saturday, noting that she & # 39; overcrowded & # 39; train had been through Germany
