And still most Canadians don't live further north from the U.S. border than 300 miles..? From Venice, you'd end up roughly in let's say Munich but not further then Frankfurt.

The Dutch, Belgians and British in the shit..? Never mind the Scandinavians, for the price of a beer they charge who cares...

(no offense I really like Sweden and Finland)

@ Road UK: Well that's why I wondered. Nearly all population of Québec lives within 200 kilometers of the U.S. border. There are many swimming pools in an area that is apparently regarded as the northern end of significant human habitat. If you drive north from Montréal, civilization stops after just one hour of driving.

Montreal's summers are warm, at times hot and humid with average high temperatures of 26 °C (79 °F) and low of 16 °C (61 °F), temperatures frequently exceed 30 °C (86 °F).

And I know more: I know someone who has to go to a town near Huesca, but instead he got to a town which is close to the border with Catalonia! He probably heard Binaced instead of Vicién (Where he was supossed to go).

As long as people don't mistake Birmingham, West-Midlands, UK for Birmingham, Alabama and Amsterdam, NL for Amsterdam, NY or even London UK for London, ON we can take it with a laugh. I'm still waiting for the first African delegates, wanting to see the Queen at Windsor Castle to turn up at the border check-point between Detroit, MI and Windsor, ON.

Or Sant Vicenç, there are four towns called Sant Vicenç in Catalonia, and the four are in the same province! (Sant Vicenç de Castellet; de Torelló; dels Horts and, why not, Sant Vicenç de Montalt, probably one of the most known towns of SSC Spain). And I have passed through two of them on the same day!

I wish. No, it was more depressive than that. I was diagnosed with a progressive brain cancer. But... they mixed me with someone else! So I don't have brain cancer. But after 3 months they still don't know what I got. I hope it's nothing serious. I hope it's just a transient polyneuropathy.
