I have booked a flight that will get me a lifetime record for both North and East, so first it is time to share my (shameful) achievements for this year.

Life:
North: Copenhagen, Image Denmark, 55°40 N (or: Somewhere over the North Atlantic in a plane, just in sight of Greenland), both 2007
South: Arlington, Virginia, Image USA, 38°52 N, 2007
East: Napoli, :flag-it: Italy, 14°15 E, 2010
West: Washington Dulles International Airport, likewise Image USA, 77°27 W, 2007

2011:
North: Bakel
South: Ell
East: Panningen or Koningslust*
West: Veldhoven

* the village of Koningslust is further east, but most of the road between theses places is part of Panningen, and this road has a bend from northeast to northwest.

Also of note is that though all these four places are in the Netherlands, there is a small part of Belgium that I managed to visit as well.

2011:
North: Deventer
South: Kerkom-bij-Sint-Truiden, :flag-be: Belgium
East: Zutphen
West: Leiden
(All others in :flag-nl: the Netherlands)

2010:
North: Utrecht, :flag-nl: the Netherlands
South: Napoli, :flag-it: Italy
East: Napoli, :flag-it: Italy
West: Den Haag, :flag-nl: the Netherlands

2009:
North: Groningen, :flag-nl: the Netherlands
South: Paris, :flag-fr: France
East: Somewhere in :flag-de: Germany, near Meppen
West: London, Image UK

2008:
North: Dublin, :flag-ie: Ireland
South: in :flag-fr: France, just across the border from Schengen, Luxembourg
East: Elmpt, Niederkrüchten, :flag-de: Germany
West: Dublin, :flag-ie: Ireland

2007 you can mostly guess form the lifetime achievements at this time.

Finally it did not happen :cry:, so Jesolo still stands as the Northernmost point ever reached by me.
