My brother, a couple of friends, and I have been tossing around the idea of going to Germany sometime. After all, I’ve studied the language for two years now and want to make an attempt to use it before I inevitably forget it. Since plane tickets are a little expensive in the summer, we decided we’d hit up Google Maps to see how it suggested we get there. They estimated that it would take about 30 days to get from our house to Berlin. That includes a 3,462 mi swim across the Atlantic Ocean … and you thought the Iron Man Triathlon was a feat.
I wonder if Google has a disclaimer to fall back on in case someone attempts to follow these directions and drowns.
