Another great one! - I can't believe that Canada is only 755 miles from Florida, yet it takes forever to get to Canada from New York City by car (say 7-8 hours!).

A quick search on Google Maps says the fastest route from New York City to the Canadian border is 6 hours and 40 minutes, and if you hit traffic, I'd imagine it would be worse, so it seems pretty accurate.

Seriously. We accept several type-ins, but not that one, which is the name of the French part on the other side of the island.

Was quite surprised at how few countries there are from the Lesser Antilles and that Central America and most of the Caribbean coast of South America are closer.

Yes, exactly. I was trying all the classic Lesser Antilles countries and striking out. With time expiring I added Colombia and Venezuela and was shocked that they came up.
