Los Angeles to Paris the Swimming Way

Man, I didn't expect that I'll update my new software blog so soon again, but I'm so excited: just found that I can get directions from Los Angeles to Paris through Google Maps! Here's how you can get there

The total distance of the whole trip is 6,567 miles and it will take 30 days and 23 hours. The most interesting part is that Google Maps advises me to swim across the Atlantic Ocean:

I knew Google Maps gives you the shortest distance between two locations but I didn't know that it tries to save money for you too! As gas prices continue to rise, it probably isn't that bad an idea to swim 3,462 miles. And it's some good exercise for a developer too :)
