    Default Furthest You've Travelled

    What's the furthest you've ever been from where you call home?

    I went to South Africa one time, visited City Planners and architects in Johannesberg.

    And to put it into context maybe we should include a start point... that would be from England.

    From England to the west coast of America. That was a 10 hour flight, which was quite fun, I watched about 3-4 films. Couldn't tell you which though.

    The longest distance was probably from my home of Atlanta, Georgia (in the south east U.S.) to Japan. Other long trips include from Atlanta to Hawaii, England, Ireland, Saudi Arabia, Greece, Egypt, and from England to Kenya. I've also been to the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Italy, and a few points in between, but those trips were based out of England. With in the U.S., I've also driven from Atlanta to the Grand Canyon.

    Man, I miss traveling.

    If I were to assume that the Dallas / Ft. Worth area to my home base / point of origin, then the furthest I have been from it would be Alice Springs, NT, Australia.

    I've also been to England, and then throw in a smattering of states within the USA (namely the south-east to central plains regions), and I've had a nice life of travel really.

    Manila to New York. The journey had several legs:
    Manila to Singapore: 3 hours
    Singapore to Kuala Lumpur: 1 Hour
    KL to Stockholm: 12 hours
    Stockholm to New York: 10 hours.

    The trip back was even longer. Ugh.

    West coast USA to China. The actual flight wasn't that bad, China is so far east it's west....we ended up spending 36 hours in travel, however, including nights in hotels (of which there were two). The flight back was closer to 48 hours because we were delayed in Tokyo and when we got to San Francisco, we'd missed our connecting flight. That was a joy.

    I'm going to Israel in January. That may actually be "further" away. We get an overnight in Paris... I've never been to Israel or France. The trip will bring my total of countries visited(/lived in) to 14.

    Well, my starting point for travel pretty much my entire life has been Chicago, IL.

    Back when I was kid, my mother had some family in Barranquila, Colombia, so we used to visit almost every summer. I think the last trip I had was in the summer of 1992 or somewhere in that vicinity.

    More recently, from late May to early July, I visited Egypt on a study abroad trip that went from Alexandria down to the Nubian border. That was freaking awesome.

    Hopefully, if one of these dang "Teach English in Japan/China" programs would actually accept me (going on five "We have decided not to offer you a position..." and yes I'm slightly bitter ) I'll be able to visit good ol' China and Japan for the first time. That would be awesome.

    Once I get into grad school, I hope to be able to travel internationally at least once every year.

    For me, the longest was Chicago, Illinois to Hyderabad, India. Took about 16 hours to fly from Chicago to Delhi (a distance of 7505.07 miles or 12078.22 km apparently) and another 30 or so to take the train from Delhi to Hyderabad. To be fair, it would have taken only about 2 hours to fly from Delhi to Hyderabad, but the train was infinitely more awesome.
