Driving from Sydney to Boston

"These directions are for planning purposes only. You may find that construction projects, traffic, or other events may cause road conditions to differ from the map results."


Similar directions are available for all the locations I tried in Australia - Alice Springs, Tasmania . . . Note that if you start your trip in Australia, the distances are measured in kilometers, but if you start in the USA they are measured in miles. I suspect, like the driving from New York to London directions that I blogged about some time ago, these too will disappear before long. At least this time they suggest that you should kayak across the ocean rather than swim!

ROFLMAO!! Are those for real!? And if so why a kayak and not a speedboat or sailboat?

This looks like a fun new game to play with mapquest when work gets boring for a few minutes. I'll have to try door to door to my mum's :-)

That is so funny. I love quirks like this.

Let's hope you don't lose an oar in mid-ocean!!

Oh great. I had a flight booked to Heathrow from O'Hare this Friday, but I think I should probably start at least a couple of days earlier now. And god knows where all the life jackets are!!!
