Take the train from Cardiff to New York

The Russian Government is proposing the construction of a tunnel from Siberia to Alaska under the Beiring Strait. It may seem fanciful but it would only be 64 miles long which is just over twice as long as the Channel Tunnel which is 31 miles long. It would cost $10 billion to $12 billion (yeah, I'd say take that with a grain of salt and multiply by at least 5) and it would take 10 to 15 years to build.

Imagine how cool it would be to travel by land from Cardiff to New York! Probably by train, but I'm sure some people would try to drive it. Hell, some crazy people might even try it by foot.
