This is fun, JM - you could link this with Signs, Signs (see my post today). I've been to the northernmost city, not here... ;-)

Well it is 11832 Km's from my city =)

That is a whole lot of miles/kilometres. Such a nice design.

It's a long way from anywhere.

I love this sign. Always nice to know how far you are from anywhere :-)

14688 to Bombay. Now when I look back I traveled quite far. I love this place and I want to go there again.

Thank you so much for posting this picture.

Awesome capture! You did a fabulous job taking this shot. You got it all in beautifully. Plus it is a very interesting sign. I asked my husband- who is playing on his computer- your question, and he said Chili. Sorry, honey...that is not the right answer.

You have literally been to the ends of the earth! Amazing. Love the sign. We have the southernmost city in the U.S. here in Florida - Key West - and there is a similar sign down there also, but smaller.

Donnie said...

Looks like you can go anywhere from there.

Whoever put up this sign surely is making a good point about the distance !

Andy said...

There's a lot of choices to make there. Toronto would be the closest to my home.

When we were in Ushuia we got the last flight out before the airline went on strike. We did not want to be stuck down at el fin del mundo, as it would be a long way back to drive, as your sign shows.

Halcyon said...

You really have been some interesting places!

Lindsay said...

Your wonderful pictures make me want to follow in your footsteps and see them for myself. However, with some places, I must be content with you bringing the world to me.

I like how they put several locations on each direction. It makes a nicer pattern than the ones that have single locations. I'm ready to go!
