BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A 21-year-old German tourist who wanted to
visit his girlfriend in the Australian metropolis Sydney landed 13,000
kilometers (8,077 miles) away near Sidney, Montana, after mistyping his
destination on a flight booking Web site.

Dressed for the Australian summer in T-shirt and shorts, Tobi Gutt left
Germany on 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."
