Does a banana travel by a boat?
If you buy a banana in Europe, changes are almost 100% that your banana has been travelling by boat. Sea transport has always been very important to the organisation of a banana exporting. From the nineteenth century, the banana trade has basically connected tropical producing countries with northern hemisphere markets. The earliest connections were from West Indian islands to Britain and France, and from the Caribbean coasts of Central and South America to the United States.

How fast a boat can travel varies based on the type of boat. Someboats travel at very slow speeds like 3-4 knots, and others at 80+knots.
Depends on how much fuel, food and spares it's carrying. Several times around the world isn't a problem.
Travel by boat from England to Japan is a possible trip, but a long one. Modern travelers will utilize the Suez canal which connects the Mediterranean sea to the Indian ocean via the long and narrow(for a sea) red sea. This man made short cut cuts the trip almost by one-third or more... From the Ind…ian ocean, continue east , ... going around the large country of India, until you can slowly begin working your way north , which should be at Viet Nam and above that is huge China. You are very close, now. Following the coast of China north, you will eventually find a divided country.... from the sea you will see South Korea then North Korea,...which is the only connection to the mainland (and China). From this location next to Korea, you are almost at the southern tip of the island nation of Japan. to find it's capital, you must reach the eastern side of Japan and find a nice port to park your ocean liner. Before the Suez canal was build... from England, you travel south down and around Africa. The southern tip of Africa to sea-going folk, is always a difficult and dangerous transition ... from the Atlantic ocean into the very rapidly moving Antarctic ocean (there is no large body of land slowing the oceans rapid flow rate - aided by the earth's spin). Anyways,.... at the southern tip of Africa, head east and with the Antarctic direction of flow. You'll make good time. Still, you're going to join the 'modern path to Japan' at India... as I've written above. (MORE)
slowly! but in all seriousness... down the Ohio river, which will take you to the Mississippi river, through the gulf of Mexico, and on to Florida.
I just saw the commercial and logged in to know if my assumption was true. My wife was hesitant to believe that It was shot in Punta del Este, Uruguay. I am 100% certain that it was filmed by the sea port, playa mansa and Jose Ignacio!!! I grew up vacationing there. It took me the first shot by the …water and the light tower to realize it....I am truly amazed how marketing is out sources just any where in the world and film in any locations around the world!! An example are car commercials most of them are filmed in some European city! Going back to this commercial if anybody can prove me wrong go ahead but I am very positive about it was film in this beautiful place of the globe!!! It is more I have been in every single location of were the commercial was shot!!!! Ciao, -Reto ;) (MORE)
To an extent, it depends on the plane or boat in question. But flying is considered the safest form of transportation; largely because it is so heavily regulated.
That's like asking how fast does a car travel. It depends on the car. Tug boats are powerful but not very fast. An average top speed may be about 13 kts. plus or minus 4 kts.
Boats don't travel on it's own. People steer it and maybe, in a row boat, the row the boat.
It depends on the country that you are from, but bananas are almostalways going to have a lot of "food miles." They likely had totravel over a thousand miles to reach your store.
Some land lover who has no clue of the history of bad luck and banana's on boats, was sitting in his office one day, before peeling his banana, he stopped to look at it, thought it looked like a boat and created a corporate campaign around it. sad,

\nYou probably want to know about a "U-Boat", from "Unterseeboot", German for Undersea Boat, or, in other words, a submarine.\n. \nSo the answer is "underwater"..
This is a song about Jamaicans loading the banana boats and waiting for the 'tally man' to count their load so they could leave and go home.
Not sure to whom you are referring. The early settlers traveled by ship. After the introduction of transatlantic flights, people could choose between ships or planes.
\nA song by a black man based on a traditional song sung by black Jamaicans. Soooo racist. NOT.
The Answer can be found in the history of Trinidad where the banana boat song was a traditional Jamaican song. They loved The Belafonte version and won't argue about copyrights. They just love music in that style
Take a cup and fill it with water and slowly pour a little bit of water into the eye and keep doing that until it feels like it's out.
Yes, some companies offer cruises from Singapore to Penang. But they are not a cheap way of getting to Penang. It would also take much longer than a flight.
You can book through a cruise vacation with a stop in the country of Spain. But if you intend on traveling from USA to Spain; I do not know if there is such route. But if ever you are in Spain please do not miss to visit Tenerife.
Although U-Boats often employed "Wolfpack" tactics, this did notmean the traveled together. Each U-Boat would travel alone, whileothers patrolled their own section of sea, miles away. However if 1U-Boat did come across Allied shipping, they would send out radiosignals to any other U-Boat within dist…ance to come to their aid.As a result the strength of a Wolfpack depended purely on how manyU-Boats were in a similar stretch of sea at any given time. . ADDED: The questioner appears to have misunderstood the term.The Answer gives it correctly: "U-boat" stands for "Untersee Boot"(sorry, can't use the correct accents), the German words forliterally, 'Undersea Boat'.

Well, it depends on where the bananas are coming from. Although I'd imagine most would come from Latin America, there are bananas grown fairly close to the UK: in Spain. This distance would most likely take a day or less, depending on means of transportation. You could see a week or less if coming f…rom Latin America. (MORE)
There are many stories, some saying that ships hauling cargo (among them bananas) would sink and that the predominate feature on the surface was yellow bananas. I read that in Florida, charter boat captains have banned all things banana. No lotion with the word banana on it. No muffins with the offe…nding fruit and esp. not the banana its self. Here is another story of the tale. Around the 17th and 18th century trans-ocean crossings were very dangerous endeavors for Captains, crews and passengers aboard wooden sailing ships. There were a very high percentage of vessels that sank in these times. Ships often sailed routes that would take them near tropical islands, where they could replenish with food and water. Passengers, explorers and crew would purchase crates of bananas from local islanders. Banana crates were have said to contain more than just this good fruit. They sometimes had spiders, snakes and other creepy crawlers taking up residence inside. These critters would then find there way into all the nooks and crannies, the bilge & bunk rooms and multiply. Causing moderate to serious problems aboard a ship at sea. It order to combat this, Captains began telling people that bananas are very bad luck and the vessel will be successful by not having bananas aboard. If you know sailors they are a superstitious lot.

Coastal islands, usually. Most people who own a personal boat use it for fishing, some just travel up and down the river or go skiing or wakeboarding.
yes, you can. unless its over 2 years expired. you can even use expired lotion. the only reason why you might not want to use expired lotion is the lotion will be all peely and just gross. but it wont harm your skin.
It is considered to be bad luck in the Hawaiian culture because the sailors there would always take bananas with them on the boat, the bananas would always rot around the time the boat got far enough into the ocean, sea, etc. to catch any fish, the Hawaiians associated this with bad luck.
A lot of the unmapped places were easiest to get to across water, and sometimes explorers didn't want to interact with locals by traveling by land.
by learning to drive a boat for very long distances and have alotof feul in the tank ooh and food
Probably not but to be absolutely certain you need to contact the UK Border Agency.

No you can not boat to Russia well you can but it would take like a month.
Have you been searching for banana boat? The actual song is Monomonom by the Muppets
Because he was sent to Tahiti to observe the Transit of Venus, to aid in the scientific effort of the day to mathmatically calculate Earth's distance from the sun, and travelling by ship was a whole lot more sensible than swimming there! He had no real options to travelling by boat in the late 1700s…. (MORE)
Yes, it is possible, but extremely ineffiecient. Using GoogleEarth's path distance tool, I found that, by zig-zagging throughthe great lakes, the distance is 812 nautical miles, or almost 1000standard miles. It would be much faster to just go by train or car.

Although extensive research has been done there does not appear to be any information about where one might find a banana boat recipe holder. There are a variety of banana boat recipes that are available on sites such as All Recipes and Betty Crocker.
The original, official name for The Banana Boat Song by Harry Belafonte is Day-O. There are indications it had no official title at first and began as a call-response by Jamaican banana workers.
Yes but bananas are not used widely in electrical wiring becausethey tend to go rotten in a short time. Also the resistance is morethan copper wire.
the musical elements of the banana boat song ( by harry belafonte ) is call and responce.
