Farthest Away You've Been from Home?

For me, it was a trip to China- I went to Beijing, Shanghai, and another place that I don't quite know how to spell the name of.
Other than Canada, I've never been anywhere outside the U.S., which is kind of depressing...

Furthest I've travelled is Australia and New Zealand which is as far away from home as I could be.

Gee,I wish I could have been to as many interesting places as them,but sadly I haven't.The places I have been to(other than my home state)are only in the U.S.A.,such as Ohio,Virginia,Maryland,and South Carolina.

Texas to Alaska, I guess, I've lived in both places too, so I'm not sure if that counts.

I've been living in South Korea for the past four months and have done some travelling throughout Asia, but prior to that, Europe was the farthest away I'd been from home.

What, you didn't bother to travel across the continent to Oregon?

There is a reason they made a trail to here.

5456 miles give or take a few here and there, depending on how you calculate it.

I used to play this. Catching dysentery, loosing my oxen fording a river, and having to hunt countless bears made me afraid to traverse the Oregon Trail!

I have a slightly updated version of this game.I also used to play these all the time and I sometimes still do.They're pretty fun!
It makes me wish I could travel on the real Oregon Trail.

The farthest place I've ever been was a 7 month stay on the Fidji Islands - which is kind of the farthest possible place from my home in Germany.

Other than that I've been to France, Austria, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Tunesia - most of them several times.

Oh and Hawaii & Canada - but only to change planes to fidji .. so I don't think those count.

I hopefully will visit a part of my familiy living near Boston sometime close.

almost on the opposite side of the world.

I have travelled extensively, but the furthest I have been is to the South Island of New Zealand. As I am from the Netherlands, that's all the way around the world for me.

Anything further than that, I would actually be on my way back...

Well, there's mushrooms, and then there's the other mushrooms.

The first kind go well with bacon, and the others have a tendency to send you on long trips. If you found Farmer Maggot and came back without dog bites I think you were eating the other kind!

Fang, Grip and Wolf were all bark...lovely animals! Speaking of trips, per the title of the thread we ARE on our way to the pub, and from there who knows?

As for the old farmer, he's given us a ride and a basket full!
