FurthestCity is a simple site with the function of sharing exactly which cities, large or small, are most distant from each other. Enter a location, and view a small list of such places categorized by population size. We recommend trying it with your current location, then your hometown, and then your dream vacation destination.

We're currently in Reykjavik, Iceland, so we thought it'd be cool to use the site to calculate the farthest city away from our position.

It's not even half-way through 2014 and already here's proof that we've gone from one end of the world to the other.

Checking a city that's more equatorial, we see that Rio de Janeiro is furthest from Japan:

Now your turn! Having a bad day? Use this site to think about traveling as far away as possible. Head over to the official Furthest City site for more.
