I ordered something from England that was shipped last week. This is the tracking info (in reverse order):
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
So in essense, from the time it was picked up by FedEx, it's been bouncing between England and France.

Once I ordered something from Germany. It went to few cities in Germany then 2 cities in France (including Paris). Then it went to Bangkok then to Sydney. It was with UPS Express. It took 4 days total.
