In km yes but not by 'Country Transits': Italy -> France -> Brazil (via French Guiana) -> Peru -> Ecuador For Estonia you have to cross more borders. I'd like to make one based on actual distance but I don't have a table with distances between countries

How did I get fooled by Ireland - which I presume uses a transit via Gibraltar, which is where I live?
