Is it possible to have zero average speed but nonzero average velocity?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

This is probably completely wrong, but I'll put it up anyway:

If one's frame of reference is also the center of an arbitrary circle, then an object that travels along the circumference of that circle will have zero average speed but nonzero average velocity.
