A lovely Google Maps Easter Egg: The suggested route includes 5,572km of swimming across the Atlantic Ocean. Click the image to enlarge. And take special note of item 44 in the description of the drive.

  • 42. Take the ramp onto Quai Frissard 1.0 km
    2 mins
  • 43. At the roundabout, take the 4th exit onto E05 0.9 km
    2 mins
  • 44. Swim across the Atlantic Ocean 5,572 km

The best thing about it: They suggest this can be done in 29 days:-)

Try this yourself: Open the Google Maps Get directions tool, enter FROM: Hamburg TO: New York, hit enter.

I hope they are not going to remove this one, considering they removed the lovely giant bug in the South of Germany!
