Great showcase of the power of the routing engine and the usefullness
of OSM (over Google).

I've added a route from Fisterra (Portugal) to the easternmost point in
Russia I found that was routable: Komsomolsk-on-Amur. There is still 43
degrees to go to the dateline, but those roads are not well connected.

As it is, it's still a route of 14,235 km, covering 148 degrees of longitude.
