Not done this for a while, what is the most extreme location you have visited in each direction of the compass? The same for airports (which you have actually flown into).

N - Tallinn (Vanalin) Estonia / airport TLL
E - Tokyo (Narita airport is actually the furthest east I went) / airport NRT
S - Parktown, Johannesburg / airport JNB
W - Tofino, BC / airport YPW (Powell River BC)

I have flights booked to both SYD and MEL, so in a few months time I'll be able to claim MEL as my southernmost point, and SYD as the easternmost (even though I'll travel west to get there...)

Edited to replace HAM with ANC, as I totally forgot I was there last year...
