Christchurch, New Zealand.

Next time, if there is a next time, I'll have to go further south.

I've had a few 'round the world' tickets... so I guess the furthest from home would be everywhere!

Well, you can either look at it as NZ is home and the furthest is the East Coast of Maine or NY is home and Queenstown NZ is the furthest

Somewhat off-topic, but there has been an earthquake early Saturday morning NZ time, on the South Island, about 30 km west of Christchurch:

^ The sad this is I first heard about this from my family and friends in NY asking if I was ok... I really should check the news once in a while.

Such a shame. Luckily there doesn't seem to be many serious injuries and no deaths.

I realize that it is not eco-friendly, which makes me sad... BUT I've been across the International Dateline AND the Prime Meridian. I'm proud to be a world traveler. I wish it could be in a greener way.

Berwick upon tweed.

I've never left the UK. We didn't have the money when we were kids, then through Uni I didn't get a grant and decided debt was a foolish idea just to travel. Once married I also didn't have much money, and once we were off the bread line we had survived so long without travel it didn't seem worth it.

Same here, furthest I think is either Wales or the Isle of Man.

I had to do a latitude longitude check to get this right, but Cyprus it is.

Paris or Oslo, whichever is further. Although, you could technically call Norway my 'home' and California was simply the place I was raised.

Tokyo, or Tennesse, I'm not sure which one's further away from Ireland!

Seoul, South Korea or Beijing, China. They are both on the exact opposite side of the planet from me, and man were those some painful flights!

My first time overseas was on a cruise at the beginning of the year. Flew from Melbourne up to Sydney first, a day later we headed off to Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Was very awesome and really cool! Definitely would do it again, perhaps to different ports though.

I live a sheltered life. I have seen all of seven states in the U.S. and traveled to Canada a few times, up to Kenora and stayed in a cabin on Lake of the Woods a few times. I have never been oversees but I dream of visiting the UK! I'm just too poor right now and getting worse with student loans. :(
