The site http://ipinfo.io/ gives you back not only your IP address, but your geolocation too. Example (with a fake IP):

$ curl http://ipinfo.io/
{
  "ip": "734.675.653.542",
  "hostname": "No Hostname",
  "city": "Debrecen",
  "region": "Debrecen",
  "country": "HU",
  "loc": "47.5333,21.6333",
  "org": "...",
  "postal": "..."
}

Let’s visualize my location:

Debrecen, Hungary, center of the world :)
