Step 43: Swim Across the Atlantic...

One of the things that always amuses me is when Americans ask me whether it was possible to drive from the US to where I am from (Austria). "Of course not!" I usually say (and then I give them "that look"). But apparently I am wrong! Try this: Go to http://maps.google.com and get driving directions from Vienna to New York. It actually gives you step by step directions of how to drive. My personal favorite:

Step 43: Swim across the Atlantic Ocean (5,572 km).

Total time estimated for the entire trip: About 29 days and 17 hours.

I wonder if they account for any breaks along the swim...
