    About  200 km - Vancouver Island to Seatle. Normally  I  stay within 30 miles of home. Cheers!

    No. Sorry too busy seeing Disney, Legoland, SeaWorld and Universal.  I did visit with a cousin and her family who live close. This post was edited by my2cents at May 19, 2021 6:39 AM MDT

    You missed out on seeing Randy’s sandwich kitchen in his basement.  Next time drop by and if Randy’s not home, I’ll give you a tour.  Make sure Randy’s not at home first, because I’m not supposed to give tours of Randy’s house, or even be anywhere near it.

    Yes, definitely one of the places I would like to go back to visit 50 years later now.

    For me, Australia IS home and I've never been elsewhere. Brisbane is as far from here as I've been. About 1000 miles as the crow flies. Not being a crow, I had to tack on another two hundred fifty.

      Considering my place of birth as the origin point and my general upbringing in that same locale for the first eighteen years of my life with the exception of vacations taken in-country (continental United States only), I eventually branched out much further in every ensuing decade of my life.

      Excluding Antarctica, I’ve been on all of the other continents: AsiaAfricaNorth AmericaSouth AmericaEurope, and Australia.  I’ve been on islands of varying sizes that are not near any continent. I can na at least 24 countries to which I have been, and if transit through countries is included, the count would probably be about 40. I’ve sailed aboard ship in some of the most vast oceans and seas of the world. I’ve logged land miles and nautical miles and air miles that when combined could . . . er, um, well . . . could stretch for miles. (Ok, I’m reaching there.) 

      So take a globe, pinpoint my hometown (never has been revealed here), measure places on the exact opposite side of the world, and I’ve likely been there.

    The farthest places were the European countries, Iceland, and domestically, travel between Washington State and South Florida was pretty hefty mileage as well.

    I guess I'll say the furthest I've been between two of my homes,  approximately 1800 miles. I've never traveled abroad, other than briefly into Canada, and it wasn't the furthest I've traveled anyway.
