Down Under (a snowbank, that is)

"The mixup with 'y' and 'i' meant a difference of two continents, 13,000 kilometres (8,000 miles) and around 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) in temperature between his intended destination and where he actually touched down." - Deutsche Welle

Also, the difference between a cosmopolitan Australian city and tourist destination, and a snowy burg in eastern Montana whose population is less than 5,000 and main claim to fame is as the home of the prehistoric paddlefish.

I had no idea that Sidney, Montana even had an airport. Always remember to double-check your spelling when buying plane tickets on Expedia.
