Some days driving just takes too much effort, taking the train takes too long, and buying a plane ticket takes too much forethought. Thankfully Google has made the option available to take two radically different and arguably faster forms of transportation: riding atop a dragon or cruising on the back of the Loch Ness Monster.

A dragon can get you from Snowdon to Brecon Beacons in just 21 minutes. That's not bad considering it's a journey of over 100 miles.


Alternatively, you can hop on the Loch Ness Monster to get from Fort Augustus to Urquhart Castle, a 28 minute trip that stretches across the entire Loch Ness lake.


If neither of these modes of traveling across Europe works for you, you might need to go incognito. These are private creatures, after all, though in my case they both popped up just fine. Enjoy them while you can, as they're temperamental beings, and we don't know how long they will be around.
