I suddenly have an irrepressible urge to travel the 10,608 miles to Port-aux-Français in the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. Why? Because now I know it's the furthest capital city from where I live.

I found out through the extremely charming and very wonderful FurthestCity.com, which does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. It tells you the furthest cities of over 100,000 people, 1,000,000 people, and the furthest capitals.

Check it out right here.
