Back from Iceland, where fast and low cars are really rare, but weird 4x4 fill the roads!

This moves my west record a bit further, but still on this side of the Atlantic.
  • North: Knivskjellodden, Norway: 71° 11' North
  • East: Narita Airport, Japan - 140° 23' East
  • South: Nara, Japan - 34° 41' North
  • West: Keflavik Airport, Iceland - 22° 37' West

My personal geographic extremes need some updating.

North: 68° 48' 12" N, 16° 32' 55" E - Harstad, NOR, 2014
South: 34° 48' 57" S, 58° 32' 31" W - Buenos Aires Ezeiza airport, ARG, 2019
West: 32° 49' 25" S, 69° 56' 34" W - Parque Provincial Aconcagua, ARG, 2019
East: 22° 45' 06" N, 59° 19' 44" E - near Qualhat, OMN, 2017

Altitude: ~2940 m - Mt Etna, ITA, 2014

I really wanted to come home from Argentina with a new altitude record, but the paths where I could go above 2900 m were closed due to the deep snow.
But I probably broke a very special record, experiencing the lowest ever dew point of my life : -23° C! (Calculated from T=-9.4°C and RH=32%.)

Well, I forgot to update the stats in the international forum, so my present records are:

North 60° 04' 15.7" - Odda, Norway
South 27.75° Maspalomas, Canary Islands, Spain (Playa del Inglés)
West West 122°29'W San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, United States of America, California
East 29° 4' 0" E - that is Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge on Bosphorus (Istanbul, Turkey)

Max. altitude Rysy (Tengerszem-csúcs, Meeraugspitze) 2499 m (Slovakia, High Tatras) 23.07.2016.
Min. altitude -223m under sea level, in a tunnel near Stavanger, Norway - I think that was it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byfjord_Tunnel

As for the dewpoint, I guess I experienced it to be lower than -23 oC. In 2002, when -26 oC was experienced in Kazincbarcika according to metnet.hu (Usrin informed me about that site for the very first time them), I was in the town at 2-3 a.m., when it was probably only 1-4 oC 'warmer' than the daily minimum. As far as I remember, we were far away from fog, so the dew point could have been lower than Usrin reported from Argentina. Another possible change is when in February 2011, I was hiking in the High Tatras, and it was around -10 oC near the Zöld-tavi menedékház (Chalet of the Green Lake, Chata pri Zelenom plesé), and a very dry and strong wind was blowing from North, the air was extremely clean and dry at that moment.

Continents I've visited (new with bold):
Europe
North America
Asia (Bosphorus only)
Africa (Canary Islands only)

Countries where I spent a night (sleeping on the bus/in an aircraft doesn't count):
Hungary
Great Britain
Slovakia
Denmark
Italy
Romania
Croatia
Montenegro
Turkey
Bulgaria
Czech Republic
Norway
Poland
Spain
Portugal
Sweden
Greece
Slovenia
Austria

Countries I've visited (at least some hours spent, but no nights spent there, new with bold):
Belgium
Germany
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Albania
Switzerland

Countries I've visited, only transit (new with bold):
the Netherlands
France
Serbia
Macedonia

Countries I've flown over (new with bold):
Ireland
Iceland
Canada
Morocco

Places where I've lived:

no changes, but my girlfriend (wife from 2017) moved to Kazincbarcika to me in August 2014

It's a pity that I was always at a wrong place (mostly Budapest) when parts of Hungary had temperatures below -20°C. Of course it could have easily meant a dew point below -23°C.

Btw, the extremely dry air in Argentina was not a pleasure - made my overly sensitive nose bleed a few times... (During the relatively warm afternoons, the same moisture in the air gave relative humidity of not more than 10%.)

Statistics on my time spent in different countries are under preparation.

Norway: visited in 2015, coins were put into my collection.

I had bad luck in Macedonia, when we were travelling to Greece last year, we stopped at a petrol station with the bus, and a guy noticed a 1 Macedonian denar coin just a few tenths of a second faster than me and picked it up instead of me...

Exactly. I have the same minimum altitude, having crossed this tunnel many times.

However, I expect to break this record twice in October. First I'm going to run half-marathon in a brand new subsea tunnel going down to -291 m:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryfast
And for late October, the company is planning a geological field trip to the Dead Sea - that would be a nearly unbreakable record.

Oh! A peso? Thanks! Can't wait to feel it in my hands!

Sometimes I also forget about the baisas.

(Then 42 currencies of countries instead of 40.)
