Thanks.

Does that mean I get to look like Sean Connery when I grow up?

The likeness is remarkable. You'll also have to explain to the wife that it's in your contract to get seduced by a pretty archaeologist by the name of Elsa Schneider whilst in Venice. Best break it to her gently...

Some sacrifices will obviously have to be made.

But I guess I'll just have to do my Doody,

eh, my duty...

The state of Georgia in the USA. (I live in Minnesota. Actually, wait! No I don't! I'm on Skull Island! Ignore that first sentence! Forget I said anything! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some bloodthirsty dinosaurs to hunt for supper...)

From UK; furthest would be Washington (4374 miles). Foreign places I've been:

Most of Western Europe
Cyprus
Saudi Arabia
Bosnia
Egypt
Iraq
Afghanistan
Missouri
Tunisia

In Egypt I went to Cairo and Luxor - tip for those going to see the pyramids at Giza - one pyramid is closed for 4 months of the year on a rotational basis, so if you plan to go inside the Great Pyramid make sure it's going to be open when you're there!

getting lost

Well, certainly the most remote land location I've been is the South Pole, where I am again now. The closest I've probably come to my home's antipode is the Australian Outback around Alice Springs and Uluru (Ayer's Rock). Sailing in 2007, I went through the point in the Pacific Ocean that is the farthest from any continental landmass on the planet. That felt pretty far "out there", too.

Current temp @ Pole: -66°F (about 15° warmer than yesterday)

I think Phuket's the furthest I've been from the UK (been to Cape Town and Hong Kong too, but they're a little bit closer).

Some Middle American countries like Guatemala, Belize and Costa Rica and some others in the western direction, Sri Lanka and The Maldives in the East. I guess the distance of those destinations is comparable.
