Go to Google Maps and click on "Get Directions". Type in New York to London (or Paris for instance).
Scroll to step 23 and enjoy!

It cracks me up.

Going to Barcelona... Apr 16, 2007

It seems that our Google's friends are great Paris lovers...

... just try New York -> Barcelona

What a pity, they lost the opportunity to visit the Açores or Canary Islands !!
