Extreme & Other Points Traveled

Extreme points traveled 

Some people never leave their hometown or state, or travel outside their country. I’ve been traveling since I was 17 and to date I’ve been to more than 60 countries and territories on five continents and sailed the seven seas.

As of this writing, here are some of the extreme geographical points I have traveled to / crossed and still have a few more to add.

Please leave comments how far you have traveled from home.


To date, my northern most location I have visited is Jokkmokk, Sweden, north of the arctic circle. Location: 66.612298, 19.839591.

I plan on going much further north in Alaska, looking at Wiseman as a basecamp for the arctic at 67°26′0″N 150°5′40″W.


To date, my Southern most location I have visited is Santiago, Chile. Location: -33.4851714, -70.5993728

Future plans are for Punta Arenas, Chile as a basecamp at 53.1638° S, 70.9171° W.
