Well as usual these internet mapping tools don't always give you the most direct route. I tried mapping it out from my home in NJ to Paris and instead of Google suggesting I "swim across the Atlantic Ocean" from, say, Perth Amboy, NJ, it took me 6 hours out of my way to BOSTON instead.

Silly Google.
