Palmyra
More an oasis than an island, Palmyra is a former important city of Syria, now turned into an oasis. Its roots can be traced back to the mid-first century, when the elegant city linked caravan routes, between persia and Phoenicia. Presently, Palmyra is referred to as “bride of the dessert” and is one of the most signicative historial edifices of the Far-east. Various archeological teams are working on and off on the location, uncovering remains of ancient Asirian or Babilonian civilizations.

Bouvet Island
If you ever wondered what’s the most remote location in the world, here is your answer. Bouvet Island has a reasons for being this isolated: 93% of its surface is covered by glaciers. The island was part of one of James Cook’s quests in 1772, when he left South Africa on a mission to find it. Oddly enough, a flash of light was recorded by a satellite in 1979 likely caused by a nuclear bomb explosion or a meteor. The island also was the setting for the 2004 movie Alien vs. Predator.

Tristan da Cunha is a group of remote islands in the south Atlantic Ocean inhabited by only 271 people.

Deeded as them “the remotest island in the world”, Tristan da Cunha is an ideal place: it has no crime, no unemplyment and an income tax of several bucks a year.
