Map­ping the pm trip to Europe

Thurs­day 28 Septem­ber 2006 05:19

While I was go­ing to the oth­er side of the At­lantic any­way I fig­ured it would also be nice to vis­it New York City, since that's about in the same neigh­bour­hood of the glob­al vil­lage. And Mon­tre­al seemed a nice des­ti­na­tion to fly to from Am­s­ter­dam so the route was: fly from Am­s­ter­dam to Mon­tre­al on 9/11, train to New York, train back to Mon­tre­al, train to Hal­i­fax, fly to Saint Pierre, fly to Mon­tre­al, fly to Am­s­ter­dam. But only af­ter notic­ing the plane had to re­fu­el some­where be­tween Saint Pierre and Mon­tre­al I dared to con­sult Google Earth to find out how this would map to the Euro­pean neigh­bour­hood of the glob­al vil­lage: It's like some­one from around Mon­tre­al would like to vis­it the Faroe Is­lands, flies to Am­s­ter­dam and vis­its Ber­lin since that's in the same area. In that com­par­i­son Am­s­ter­dam - Ber­lin isn't that odd, it's just that Am­trak takes about 10 hours to cov­er such a dis­tance, and Euro­pean trains take about half of that time. But what I didn't re­al­ize was that the Faroe Is­lands were that close to Am­s­ter­dam...
