How would one prove that the Earth is round?

I took a flight from Minneapolis to Amsterdam to Delhi and on the return trip I took a flight from Delhi to Tokyo to Dallas to Minneapolis. In practically all of my flights, I was traveling east and reached the point from where I started. So the earth must be round, otherwise I could never reach the starting point traveling in only one direction.
