    How far north, south, east and west have you traveled throughout the world?

    Me:

    North - New York
    South - Florida
    East - beaches along the east coast
    West - Gettysburg, PA (maybe, I think)

    I have never left the east coast in the U.S. and have never left the U.S. itself. I would love to see other places in the world but the fear of flying always keeps me back. I would have to be drugged, lol.

    West would be technically the same as my North, and that would be Tillamook Bay, Oregon.
    South would be San Luis Obispo, California
    East - Memphis, Tennessee

    I've been to Vancouver, Canada, Everett, Washington state.

    And Canton, China. Or aka Guangzhou, the main Capital City of the province Guangdong .


    :) China is awesome.
    Then again, my bias is because I'm Chinese :lol:

    The furthest West I've been is Florida.
    The furthest East I've been is Kenya.
    The furthest North I've been is Edinburgh, Scotland, thinking about it, it could be Amsterdam but I'm not sure.
    The furthest South I've been is Kenya.

    North: Amsterdam (I lived in Munich, Germany during 2nd and 3rd grade)
    East: Italy or Austria
    West: California
    South: Florida

    When I lived in Germany, we took road trips all over Europe and I am PRETTY sure looking at this map that Italy is the farthest East we have gone, I can't be 100% sure though.

    I haven't been to the area in a loong time and I didn't bother to line the cities up on a map, so my 'west' could also be my 'north', but anyway..

    North:Wisconsin (Dells)
    South: Florida (Tampa)
    East: North C. coast
    West: Minnesota (just south of Minneapolis)

    Haven't made it out of the country yet, but before I die I'll make my way to Alaska and New Zealand. And Africa.. and South America would be awesome as well. :lol:

    North: I had a layover in the Minneapolis airport, which is the furthest north in the US I've been, but as far as me actually getting out into the city, furthest north in the US would be New York City
    East: Berlin, Germany
    South: US Virgin Islands
    West: Kansas City, Missouri (I know, major fail. Never been further west than my own state despite me being all over the eastern half of the US, 2 European countries and several Caribbean islands. I think I might be going to LA this summer though)

    South: Cuba
    West: Victoria, BC
    East: Ooh, toughie. I think that'd have to go to Beograd.
