    It's hard to say what actually has been the actual furthest I've ever been from home. It must be somewhere between Porth Elisabeth and Cape Point - South Africa :)

    I've been on a school trip to Rome, which is less than 1200 km away from where I live(d). I can't afford to travel. :(

    Depends on where you were. :D

    Where I am now - Argentina. Took me over 30 hours (by 4 planes, a bus and a car) to get here from Poland.

    Budapest, I think.
    Really, the highest concentration of pretty women I can ever remember was in Budapest... I lived most of my life in Southern California so that's saying something.

    I was in Essen! And a trip to Düsseldorf, but tbh I didn't like it there, WAY too many people.

    ^I agree with PK


    Furthest away must be either San Francisco or Seattle (or rather first beach in La Push. But since it's both on the US west coast, those few kilometers don't make a difference)

    Essen is a great place to go shopping!

    And although the population of Essen is only slightly lower than in Düsseldorf I do understand what you mean. I usually don't like spending my time in the inner city, and I'm very happy with my apartment in the suburbs. :D

    How'd you like San Francisco?
    My brother used to live there, a loft apartment right near Fisherman's Wharf.
    I'm not too keen on my brother, we're polar opposites, but I loved San Francisco so I visited him often.

    San Francisco was great! Absolutely loved it! Even the morning mist was beautiful in some twisted way. The city is beautiful, great atmosphere, very artsy, playful, legere... <3 it.
    Though... I can't say it's more beautiful than Seattle, even though there's constant rain in that one. Seattle simply has better views and an even more relaxed atmosphere ;)

    => They're both my favorite city :D

    Oh, and if that was my brother with an apartment near Fisherman's Wharf, I would've kicked him out of there and taken over ^^
