Farthest south you have traveled?

What is the most south you have been? For me, it was Hawaii. 1975 I believe.

In 1983, I went through the Strait of Magellan on my submarine, the USS George Washington, reaching 54 degrees south latitude. We transited the Strait on the surface and from west to east.

The farthest north I have traveled is Fairbanks, Alaska, which is about 65 degrees north latitude.

Antarctica, Palmer Peninsula, around 65 degrees south.

Farthest north 80 degrees north just west of Svalbard. Also crossed Northwest Passage but probably never passed 75 degrees north.

Wow, I never really thought about this before. Maybe New Zealand's South Island, south of Christchurch.

Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand about 45 degrees south

I may try to volunteer at some science mission in Antartica when I retire. That's the only continent I haven't visited yet.

Rio. I got an e-mail from Continental Airlines in 2000 offering travel on their new nonstop from Newark (then our home airport) to Rio for 17,500 OnePass miles per person. DH and I were just dating at the time and we grabbed it. They never made the offer again. I still treasure the H. Stern bracelet I got there.
