I had to compare Sydney with Buenos Aires. Sydney won out by 53 minutes.

I had to look this up. Cape Howe near Albany Aus or Cape Peninsula south of Cape Town South Africa. Looks like Cape Howe is just a bit further south. Hmm, what's the furthest southern point in South America? May need to plan a trip.

Cape Howe is at 37 degrees, 30 minutes. Puerto Montt is an interesting city with German heritage, a main port for the south of Chile and is at 41 degrees, 28 minutes south. But you should really go farther, to Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, at 54 degrees 48 minutes south.

Me, too. I admit to checking the map to be sure Fairbanks was north of Reykjavik.

Whitehorse, Yukon on the old school bus in 2014, as part of our circumnavigation.
Milford Sound, South Island of New Zealand in 2006.

DH has driven from one end of Russia to the other, St. Petersburg to Vladivostok, over the course of two rallies. Slightly overrated.

My wife has gone as far south as Argentina, but not its southernmost tip. I have gone only as far south as New Zealand.

Many mentioned Hawaii, and it is still way north of the equator at 21.3 deg North. And do you realize that Hawaii is closer to the Aleutian Islands in Alaska than to Los Angeles?

North: Vancouver
South: Key West
West: Santa Monica Pier? Unless Olympic N.P. is considered further West.
East: New York City

I hope to improve on the South and East by doing a cruise in the Eastern Caribbean sometime this year.

Hmmm... North and South directions are easier to define than East/West.

Is Hawaii 40 deg in longitude west of LA, or is it 320 deg east of the latter? Depends on whether you want to go the shorter or longer route. One can say Kalamazoo is 357 degrees east of Detroit.

Paradise Bay is pretty south, but I have that beat. I'm not sure where exactly Marc went on the peninsula but unless it was not any farther down than Lemaire Channel, I think I 'win'. Picture from the electronic scrapbook:

North Slope of Alaska to Aruba.

East-West: Started out traveling west from Houston to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk (Far East of Russia) via Tokyo. Continued westward to Moscow. Westward again back to Houston.

Oh, I'm really sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it; Porto Alegre is one of my favorite Brazilian cities. Home of the gaúcho, you get some of the world's best BBQ there (churrasco). I'm salivating just thinking about it.
