Question Places all over hell and creation

The idea I get is in places anywhere and everywhere... but with an hyperbolic exaggerated sense...

I would translate it like,
"lugares por todo lo habido y por haber"
"todos los lugares posibles"

Probably there is an Spanish idiomatic way to say it, like "por el cielo, el infierno y el purgatorio incluidos"... but not quite sure if there is a nice concise Spanish cliché that would match the nice register of this English way of expression...

Any ideas always welcome!
Lo propio de la verdad es que se basta a sí misma, aquel que la posee no intenta convencer a nadie.
