Top of the page there is a "quick links" menu from there select "calculator"

Use the "speed" converter... it basicly converts miles to km and back

Re: Distance from birthplace?

I'm currently sitting about half a mile from the very hospital in which I was born. Have lived all over the place (even in Oz for a short while), but now back where I belong for the forseeable.
