Google Maps fun!!!

Maps Hooooo!

Well, here’s an interesting one.
For friends of the Google Map ‘Glitches’.

A simple route request for Google Maps (via the iPhone Maps application):
Highcliffe, Dorset
Penzance, Cornwall
By car, no problem 4 hrs 18 mins and 203 miles.

By foot, though, a bit different.

  • First, walk 15 miles to New Harbour Road South, Poole.
  • Take the 70 mile Poole, UK – Cherbourg, FR ferry.
  • Take the 388 mile Cherbourg, FR -> Rosslare, IE ferry.
  • Take the 291 mile Rosslare, IE -> Roscoff, FR ferry.
  • Take the 119 mile Roscoff, FR -> Plymouth, UK ferry.
  • Walk 78 miles from Plymouth to Penzance.

Total 970 miles!!!

Bit odd.
