FQ TOPIC: Distance

| | Comments (4)

Friday Q on a Thursday, woohoo! :) (and possibly even before Dave if I'm quick)

FQ HELPER: It may be helpful to use a globe and a distance calculator for the questions below.

FQ1: What's the furthest North you've been on this world? What were you doing there?
A couple of kilometres north of Jasper in Canada. We were there to see the scenery, but it was totally rained out.

FQ2: What's the furthest South you've been on this world? What were you doing there?
Near Wilson's Promontary in Victoria. We were travelling through Victoria and South Australia in 1994 and passed by there on the way back to NSW. .. Actually I take that back - I've been to New Zealand when I was 18 months old. But I can't tell you whereabouts we actually went. Queenstown I think is fairly far south.

FQ3: Where were you born, and what's the furthest you've been from that spot?
I was born Sydney Australia. The furthest I've been from home would be New York (15979 km).

FQ AWAY: Name a blog you read that's the most distant from you... whether it be emotionally, culturally, religiously, or by physical location.
Physically.. Richard and Paul are in England, which I think is further than Tennessee where Dennis is. I'd have to think about the others though.

and yup, Dave hasn't posted yet, I win! :)

Addendum.
I have to agree with Dennis. Dave is opposite to me in a lot of ways, including being a mac lover and a vegeterian. I'm a carnivore, and windoze whore :)

Gasp! That would make Bill Gates your pimp! Hey, at least you know you'll be making good money. :-)
