Capri, Carpi ... What's the Difference?

Capri, carpi, what's the difference? Apparently, about 400 miles. Here's what happened to a couple of Swedish tourists who mistyped the destination in their GPS:

Officials say a Swedish couple looking for the pristine waters of the popular island of Capri ended some 400 miles (660 kilometers) away in the northern industrial town of Carpi after misspelling the destination on their car's GPS.

Angelo Giovannini, a spokesman for the Carpi town hall, near Modena, said Tuesday the couple drove into the main square last week and asked the local tourist office how to reach Capri's famed Blue Grotto sea cave.
