Sydney, Australia (that's s-Y-d-n-e-y)

And it's Australia, not Austria, for that matter.

Here's the story of a young guy who found himself in Sidney, Montana. Right, he was expecting to arrive in Australia.
Dressed for the Australian summer in t-shirt and shorts, Tobi Gutt left Germany Saturday for a four-week holiday.

Instead of arriving "down under," Gutt found himself on a different continent and bound for the chilly state of Montana.

"I did wonder but I didn't want to say anything," Gutt told the Bild newspaper. "I thought to myself, you can fly to Australia via the United States."

That was clever, though. If he kept going west, he would actually arrive in Australia. And a bit to the south, perhaps.

Sad thing is, he was trying to visit his girlfriend in Australia.

He could of course just hijack a plane and push his way through to Sydney. A "gel-type candy" is weapon enough, according to the recent liquid restrictions. But no..
The hapless tourist, who had only a thin jacket to keep out the winter cold, spent three days in Billings airport before he was able to buy a new ticket to Australia with 600 euros in cash that his parents and friends sent over from Germany.

Can't spell, and not exactly imaginative. Tough luck..
