It's very easy, and a quick google search for 'antipode' and 'map' will find sites that find it for you. For example, Antipodes Map either detects your location, or you can enter one, and it'll show you on a zoom-able map where your antipodal destination is. Unfortunately as shown by the map above, only about 15% of land territory is antipodal to other ...

675 km (420 miles) in Mauritania People are apparently permitted to hop a free ride in an ore hopper on the iron-ore train between Noadhibou and Zouerate, Mauritania. Those able to pay $4 (at least in 2007) can upgrade to a seat in an actual passenger cabin. GScott also mentioned this route in an answer to a prior question on where train "surfing" ...

Technically Mill Ends Park in Portland, Oregon, USA. It is a circle 2 feet (0.6 m) across. It was named an official city park in 1976, and is operated by Portland Parks & Recreation.

Alte Kirche St. Georg und Nikolaus, Flüelen, Canton of Uri, Switzerland (from Wikimedia Commons) Found by noting the time & direction of shadows, inferring that the view was facing north, looking for lakeshores in Switzerland that run roughly north-south with the lake on the west (there are not a lot of them) and with railroad track running near the ...

This is not in Belgium, but in Béthune, France, although not far from the Belgian border. The belfry (the tower) is originally from 1346, but was destroyed during the first world war and rebuilt between 1921 and 1923. You can find it on Google Streetview from almost the same point as your photographs have been taken. Image source: Wikimedia Commons How did ...

I nominate Paris Vatry airport. 147 km from Paris. Don’t even think there’s a direct link to Paris...

This picture was taken at the "Landing Memorial" in Saint-Tropez, Côte d'Azur, France. The memorial honors the American, British and French landing troops who came ashore in the Provence on the 15th of August 1944. The memorial also honors the French commandos led by Henri D'Astier de la Vigerie, who landed on Saint-Tropez on the 17th of August 1944. More ...

Russian Consulate General in Barentsburg, Norway. The settlement has a population of 470 people. Even if you assume that is also serves Longyearbyen, the capital of Svalbard (not connected by any roads with Barentsburg), the population of both settlements is only around 2570.

One journalist did attempt to research this - both the artificial labs and the natural spaces. He details it in his book - Zero Decibels if you'd like to read it. The highlights in nature: Several years ago, the Campaign to Protect Rural England declared a spot in Northumberland the most tranquil place in the country (when the nearby military base isn't ...

From March 2020 all public transit in Luxembourg will be free. Luxembourg is about 60km long and well served with rail lines and bus routes, so presumably the longest trip will be about 60km.

South America is physically connected to North America, but there's a jungle/marsh area in the middle that has no roads through it (the Darién Gap). Several people have crossed the Gap, but this is a major expedition. Most took at least 30 days to travel the 100 km length of the Gap. There are several bridges across the Panama Canal, so Panama north of the ...

The defunct Ciudad Real Airport, also marketed as "South Madrid Airport", is/was about 200 km (227km from the Puerta del Sol, the official distance) away from Madrid

A return flight from Westray to Papa Westray is a mere £21, or £10.50 per leg. It also happens to be the shortest scheduled flight in the world. Prices haven't changed since at least 2013 and tickets are available on-the-spot. I'm not sure if any other route can beat that price while being just as consistent.

I can not comment yet on this SE, and this is not an answer to the question, but I feel like I have to warn you. And the other two answer you got (Jan's and Tor-Einar Jarnbjo's) are still pretty good. Before you go racing, you may want to check this video about a situation identical to yours: https://youtu.be/fUapNMXiz0k This happened a year ago on a ...

The pic was taken at Villa Rufinella (AKA Villa Tuscolana), Frascati, Italy. The steps leading upwards are also visible on Google Streetview (at the right): Since another pic from the same date at the Hungarian PM's facebook page was taken in Rome (in front of Santa Maria sopra Minerva), this pic must haven been taken somewhere nearby. The shadows cast ...

Mt Greylock, the highest point of Massachusetts provides a view of at least 5 states.

It looks like it's Vernazza, one of the Cinque Terre - five very cute and colourful towns on the Italian coast. The photo seems to be shot as much the same as this image, but flipped for some reason: Image by chensiyuan [ GFDL or CC BY-SA 4.0-3.0-2.5-2.0-1.0 ], via Wikimedia Commons Unfortunately, your visit might be more difficult than you'd like.

This is in fact a completely legitimate photo. It is from Baarle-Nassau where the borders get really funky. Indeed, the one house you are looking it is just one of many, though it is probably the most famous. The exact address is Loveren 19, Baarle-Nassau 5111, The Netherlands. In a situation similar to that along, say, the India-Bangledeshi border, ...

There is a fantastic website (albeit in German) called PatList that lists every paternoster elevator in existence, as well as whether or not its publicly accessible. Currently there's about 300 such elevators left in operation (of which at least 50 are freely accessible to the public), so they're far from rare. Google Translate works well with the site, so ...

This question is hard to answer since you would have to define "in use" very precisely. Here are some wild guesses: Wikipedia has a list of the oldest buildings in the world. Prominently feature tombs/graves/similar and you could well argue they are still in use. That would go back as far as very roughly 4000 B.C. Stonehenge is believed to have been ...

There are some very remote roads in northern Quebec. The James Bay Road (Route de la Baie James) is one option. Located in northeastern Canada, in the province of Quebec, the James Bay Road runs north from its beginning at Matagami to Radisson, 620 km (388 miles) away. It is a very remote road - there are no towns along the road (except at either end), and ...

There are four ways you could celebrate New Year's multiple times, but the TL;DR is that no, there's no practical way to celebrate New Year's more than twice... although there are a few theoretical possibilities if you're willing to spend a lot of money on this! The best way is to cross the International Date Line, so you get an entire day or more to ...

You can eventually follow the link you sent out to the photographer's Flickr website: https://www.flickr.com/photos/shontzphotography/15169016487/in/album-72157645951788784/ In the discussion area, it looks to be from an area in Te Mata Peak in Havelock North, New Zealand.
