Top 5 abandoned islands of the globe



Top 5 abandoned islands of the globe


People have always been fascinated by the deserted islands, numerous writers, including Daniel Defoe, Robert Luis Stevenson, Jules Verne, and Edgar Alan Poe, dedicating them to famous novels.

Although all the islands of the Globe have been conquered by humans, there are still unpainted earth patches in various corners of the world, bathed in ocean waters. Many of these recall the descriptions of Daniel Defoe in his famous novel Robinson Crusoe, dominated by wild nature, of landscapes that have nothing in common with exotic paradises that we can imagine. The mnn.com site has compiled a list of some of these places that seem forgotten by the world.



Isolated Islands: Saint Helena - The Official Globe Trekker Website
Isolated Islands: Saint Helena - named after Saint Helena of Constantinople, is a tropical island of volcanic origin in the South Atlantic Ocean.



Henderson Island - The Pacific Ocean patch was included in UNESCO's Patrimony, being one of the few atolls in the world not affected by the presence of humans. This site provides habitat for 10 endemic plant species and four other birds. Although uninhabited, the small Pacific island of Henderson in the Pacific Ocean is considered to be the most polluted place in the world, having the misfortune of being in the path of a stream that buries its shores in tons of garbage.

Ang Thong Islands - The group of islands in southern Thailand, not far from the lush Koh Samui, offers tourists a different kind of tropical experience. Most of these limestone islands, covered with tropical rainforests and bathed in turquoise waters, are uninhabited, but they are highly sought after by tourists interested in an adventure, but also by a low-budget trip. The archipelago is part of a national park, which is why access is controlled and provided only by some operators who provide kayaking in these unique places.

Jaco Island-  This uninhabited island of East Timor has an unusual story. Considered sacred earth, it was bypassed by the people of the place, and thus remained unpopulated. Its fine sandy beaches and turquoise waters attracted him, however, as a magnet to tourists, who find here a paradise corner left untouched by people. Atoll Aldabra Although less well known, Aldabra in the Indian Ocean is the second largest coral atoll in the world, with about 100,000 giant turtles living here. This is why the area is called "the virgin island of huge turtles". Over the years, environmentalists have made tremendous efforts to conserve the island and resist plans to build a military base or permanent settlements. The number of tourists who come to disturb the peace of Aldabra because of the geographic position of the island and the high cost of travel, as there is no direct air or water link. Additionally, visitor access is subject to strict rules.

Tetepare Island - The largest uninhabited island in the South Pacific, Tetepare has not always been deserted. The island's original inhabitants lived in scattered villages and spoke a different language, but for unknown reasons, they left the island in the middle of the nineteenth century. Subsequent attempts to turn the area into an agricultural colony have failed, and tropical forests have expanded to cover much of the surface. The descendants of the former inhabitants have set up an association that oversees conservation activities on the island and cares for these places to keep their wilderness. Tetepare is the ideal destination for scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts.

Devon Island - Not all the deserted islands are located in the tropics. It is the case of Devon Island, the largest uninhabited island in the world, located in the articulated area. With a frozen soil almost all year long, with an average annual temperature of -16 degrees, the area is poor in plants or animals. Arid land, frost-free temperatures and isolation provide a good way to test people's ability to adapt to a life outside the Earth. That's why the island is used by astronauts to test their equipment and train for future missions on Mars.

Mdina, the city of silence and the nobles





Close to the heart of Malta, where it should be its place, is the fortress Mdina, which opens your doors to a completely different world and takes you in a fascinating journey in time where you can hardly get away. Situated on a hill overlooking the modern world, Mdina, a historic jewel founded by the Phoenicians 4,000 years ago, was the capital of ancient Malta until the arrival of the Ioannite knights in 1530.



Mdina Malta - Old Capital and the Silent City of Malta - Medieval Town
It was home then, as now, to Malta's noble families; some are descendants of the Norman, Sicilian and Spanish overlords who made Mdina their home from the ...



The thick walls and broad ditch surrounding the city, built during the Arab occupation of the 9th-11th centuries, separate Mdina from Rabat, the city that surrounds it. In order to recreate the medieval atmosphere, the horse-drawn carriages are waiting for you at the entrance to the city, where you can take a tour of the ancient city.In the "Silent City", as it is known to the locals, nothing has changed for 350 years. You will be fascinated to wander for hours between the debris walls of golden brick, interrupted instead of small windows with lattices or shutters, flower balconies and lanterns. Here's how time stays in place, and silence and mystery-filled atmosphere make you want to talk like a whisper.

From the main streets with sumptuous buildings, each with a distinct history, the narrow streets, which sometimes cling to a door behind you, find it hard to believe that there is still life. But there is, even a noble one, for this makes Mdina the more special. Beyond the old walls and separated from the world we know, there are only noble families living in Mdina, 80 of them, that is, almost 300 inhabitants, all descendants of some of the oldest families of noblemen in Malta - Normans, Sicilians and Spaniards, have settled on these lands since the 12th century. In fact, Mdina is also called "The City of the Barons." With luck, on Sunday mornings at Don Mesquita, you can have your coffee with the barons who chew with the new world by browsing the newspapers.
But after a stroll full of history, we are asked to stop for a rustic Mediterranean lunch, and Malta can be a revelation to amateur tourists of new culinary experiences. Although the traditional dish is the rabbit stew (Fenek), Sicilian, Spanish and North African influences have brought seafood, olives, capers, pasta, rice, couscous and an abundance of condiments to the Maltese meals.

We will go to the south of the island, in the small fishing village of Marsaxlokk, where you can feel the full flavor of a fresh fish drawn from the Mediterranean. As soon as you get to the pier, the first instinct will be categorical to remove the camera, because dozens of assorted blue, red, yellow, and white boats are the charm and attraction of the place. The six temples of Haġar Qim On our way to the Blue Grotto, about a kilometer away from the small town of Qrendi, we will visit the Haġar Qim archaeological site, a megalithic complex of six temples built in the Neolithic Age around 3600-3200 BC. hr. That makes Haġar Qim one of the oldest religious sites in the world. The complex was uncovered in 1839, and during the archaeological researches many neolithic female statues were found, which shows that here were rituals for fertility, 5000 years ago. "These temples are made of stone blocks so large that only the giants could have built them," said Giovanni Francesco Abela, a 17th-century Maltese noble. That's because the largest of these stones weighs seven tons.

But in order to better understand the value of this place, the entrance museum invites you to a small cinema hall that offers a 4D reconstruction of the temple story, from present to prehistoric times, where you will feel even the storms on your skin who have stumbled over these proofs of ancient civilizations buried for millennia. Nature's show is in the Blue Grotto A kilometer further south, we meet one of Malta's most famous tourist attractions - the Blue Grotto, the place where the electric blue of the water leaves you hypnotized. The small Qrendi pier in the cliff offers boat trips to the seven spectacular watersheds for 6 pounds. Although the caves are themselves a natural wonder, the true beauty of the place is revealed in sunny and sunny days, beyond the rocky arcade of 42 meters high. Then magic is happening and you have the chance to see a unique phenomenon - the blue sky is reflected in the white sand beneath the caves, resulting in colored waters in vibrant cobalt and azure shades. In addition, the walls of the caves mirror the orange, purple and green colors of the underwater flora, providing a light and color show.

Malta a nature paradise


Malta a nature paradise
The small Mediterranean island of Malta, Gozo and Comino, is the ideal place for holiday-makers who combine beach relaxation with rapturous landscapes with a history lesson in the open air.

Malta keeps the Mediterranean flavor, British accent, Arabic details and African aridity as a monument of all the civilizations that conquered it, carrying yourself in a cultural waltz that makes you forget about the division of the world. Its historical depth, which carries you from ancient temples, medieval times, stories with goddesses and saints and knights in armor to the present exotic beaches, leaves you fascinated and thirsty for your knowledge. Valletta, one of the most fortified cities in Europe On a trip along the Maltese islands, we make a first stop in the capital of Valletta, named after its French founder, Grand Master Jean de la Vallette.



How a Deadly Prison Island Became a Natural Paradise
Apr 29, 2017 ... The largest island of the 38 islands contained in Coíba National Park, Coíba is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the most biodiverse ...



The town was built by the Ioannis knights after the Turkish siege of 1565, when Jean de la Vallette asked for help from the Pope to build a fortress city to cope with the Ottoman attacks. The strongly fortified city is a museum in itself, a true masterpiece of baroque style. Valletta is the smallest capital of the European Union, but it offers 320 monuments that you discover at every step. Once you step into the city gates, we stop at Upper Barrakka Gardens, the highest point of the Valletta, which offers a splendid view of the Marsamxett and Grand Harbor natural harbors, and under the terrace, 8 cannons shoot every day at the hours 12.00 and 16.00. Here, on the benches that stand in the shade of the columns guarding the gardens, the elders have their oasis of tranquility, but also their favorite socializing place, where they discuss small daily worries or discuss foreign curiosities with strange eyes, while a young man with long hair caught in a lush queue and wavy ribbons fluttering in the wind, engulfs the atmosphere with Spanish guitar accords. Taking a step at Valletta, you will notice that on both sides of the main street that crosses the city from one end to the other, there are narrow and steep streets that seem sharp, and at the end of them, the sea is blinking seductively.

In a steady stream, the thousands of steps move from one store to another because the main street is a real shopping center where you can find from souvenir shops to clothes, perfumes, jewelery, beauty salons, fast food and cafes. But before you load your shopping nets, St. John's Roman Catholic Cathedral deserves special attention, for the renowned church, founded in 1572 by the Grand Master of Malta Jean de la Cassière, is regarded by architects as one of the most beautiful and representative buildings in the baroque style of the old continent. The interior of the cathedral is extremely richly decorated with paintings, the main attraction being "Cutting the head of St. John the Baptist", the famous work of Caravaggio's artwork. Another great detail is the marble floor, which is made up of almost 400 funerary stones of the knights killed in debt. But to better penetrate the knight's legendary era near the cathedral, the Grand Masters Palace invites you to a long-forgotten world. The long corridors with painted ceilings, guarded by dozens of armor, and the rooms adorned with art objects and old weapons have always been the home of the governors of Malta, and today the palace hosts the Office of the President. Here, since 1974, the presidents of Malta continue to be listed on a white marble plate. From 2014 until now, in the last line is written the name of a woman, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, Malta thus proving that it is as close to the medieval age as the modern one.

Tips for a cheap holiday to exotic destinations



Tips for a cheap holiday to exotic destinations

With a genius plan, creativity and much courage, you can venture into a luxury vacation with an unexpectedly small budget. At the time of Latin language, which many of us have not used for reasons easy to understand, the word "luxury" has a different definition than "a lot of money". It means light. In physics, luxury is a measure of the intensity of light. Where do I want to go? Lux does not cost. The joy of traveling is not only reserved for those with huge holiday budgets. You can get to places that travel agencies call "exotic" with the money you have in your pocket now. Find out how!



4 exotic destinations for a family holiday
Jan 15, 2018 ... Looking for an exotic destination for the whole family? These four locations around the world will keep both generations happy.



To begin with, I would say that you can waste your time with this text even if you are not or have not proposed to be a globe-trotter , you have a job with 21 days of leave per year and an average salary in the economy. They are universal travel tips , useful in any holiday baggage and any destination . Sure, after you put your finger on the map, it is necessary to have an applied documentation on the destination you have chosen. But until then, you will find some concrete thingsabout the sites you can consult, prices and tricksfor a substantial budget economy. Some suggestions are common sense, but - maybe - they are so simple and at hand that you have not taken them into account. The good news is that scientists have stated that you will have thousands of new neural connections with every experience that involves adaptive behavior to unknown situations. How is the holiday you're just preparing to leave.

Last Minute Deals booking ahead of time

The first estimate of a travel budget starts with the cost of accommodation . Depending on your appetite for risk, you can opt for a timely reservation or one of the last-minute hotel and hotel deals . Both variants substantially reduce the cost of a vacation in exotic destinations, otherwise extremely expensive. Some deals include transport packages, so you can get a clear picture from the beginning about the total cost of your trip.

A last-minute package provides a discount of at least 30-40% compared to the list price. The downside is that you must already be on the way to go when you choose your destination and have the money set aside for the entire trip. And, of course, it helps a lot to be open to adventure, some adrenaline, and the minimum risk involved in any planned knee travel at the last minute.

Search for low-cost accommodation options

An alternative to classical hotel accommodation is the hotel- rented apartmentsfor which you find offers on sites such as AirBnb , Homelidays , TripAdviser or Booking.com . This option is especially useful for larger groups who can afford to rent a whole apartment.

All large sites that collect such offers provide the lecturer with additional information about the place in question: description, pictures, placement on the map, and reviews or ratings from those who rented out there. If you book on a trusted site , it's almost impossible to be cheated, you have money back guarantee. That does not prevent you from being cautious.

 Choose a city break!

Most of the time, it is enough to make a brief change of landscape, entourage and atmosphere to load your batteries for the next week. A city break is cheaperthan a classic family vacation, it means less money on accommodation and food and, if you are willing to make quick decisions, a smaller budget for transport.

A good strategy is to "hunt" the offers of low-cost airlines and, depending on the discounts you find on the site, decide which will be the next destination.

But you can take advantage of the city ​​break offers that most airlines offer or package agencies offer to visit a European city on a long weekend.

Hunt the off-season promotions

You'll always find special promotions, accommodation vouchers, or full holiday packages, so it's a good idea to track travel agency websites to get discounts that are usually offered for a limited number of places.

Subscribe to newsletters - Most travel agencies and travel agencies offer free subscriptions to regular newsletters announcing promotions and new packages added to the list of offers.

Travel during the week

Accommodation at the hotel is cheaper at the beginning of the week when hoteliers try to cover their remaining vacancies. Not only that, but the cities are less crowded by tourists during the week, and some fun cost less than the weekend, when prices are often rising.

Low cost vs. carpooling flights

Carpooling ( blablacar , carpooling , UBER ) significantly reduced transport costs over long distances. Benefits are countless, from the opportunities to find interesting people to a cheaper trip and provide easy access to destinations outside of the tourist map, less connected to public transport. Low-cost flightsare already a click away and also greatly reduce your holiday budget.

Discounts and tourist cards for discounts

Most city tours provide visitors with special city ​​card discounts that offer significant discounts and cover many of the city's major objectives. Compare the list of discounts offered with your own list of goals you want to visit, and if you think you are making a major cut, buy a card that usually includes both free museum entries and discounts on public transport from the city and the bill in some partner restaurants.

Make a list of your friends abroad. Of course, it is not one of the revolutionary ideas you would expect to find in a top of cheap vacation tips, but it is very helpful. You could resume ties with people that your distance pulled out of your daily newspaper. It's fun, it's networking and it's free. Or almost for free.

But you can take advantage of the city ​​break offers that most airlines offer or package agencies offer to visit a European city on a long weekend.

Hunt the off-season promotions

You'll always find special promotions, accommodation vouchers, or full holiday packages, so it's a good idea to track travel agency websites to get discounts that are usually offered for a limited number of places.

Subscribe to newsletters - Most travel agencies and travel agencies offer free subscriptions to regular newsletters announcing promotions and new packages added to the list of offers.

Travel during the week

Accommodation at the hotel is cheaper at the beginning of the week when hoteliers try to cover their remaining vacancies. Not only that, but the cities are less crowded by tourists during the week, and some fun cost less than the weekend, when prices are often rising.

Low cost vs. carpooling flights

Carpooling ( blablacar , carpooling , UBER ) significantly reduced transport costs over long distances. Benefits are countless, from the opportunities to find interesting people to a cheaper trip and provide easy access to destinations outside of the tourist map, less connected to public transport. Low-cost flightsare already a click away and also greatly reduce your holiday budget.

Discounts and tourist cards for discounts

Most city tours provide visitors with special city ​​card discounts that offer significant discounts and cover many of the city's major objectives. Compare the list of discounts offered with your own list of goals you want to visit, and if you think you are making a major cut, buy a card that usually includes both free museum entries and discounts on public transport from the city and the bill in some partner restaurants.

Make a list of your friends abroad. Of course, it is not one of the revolutionary ideas you would expect to find in a top of cheap vacation tips, but it is very helpful. You could resume ties with people that your distance pulled out of your daily newspaper. It's fun, it's networking and it's free. Or almost for free.


Gozo, the Calypso Goddess Island


Gozo, the Calypso Goddess Island

Just a 25-minute ferry ride from the northern port of Cirquewwa, the island of Gozo, the second largest island of Malta, welcomes you in a rustic and more welcoming atmosphere. In Greek mythology, it is said that the Nymph Calypso was conquered by these places, that he chose to keep him trapped here for seven years on the shipwrecked Ulysses, whom he fell in love with. Among the first things that will attract your attention in Gozo are the quaint houses, standing well on the rocky hills overlooking the sea, which retain the same architecture, but the same color - a honey-yellow color, which gives a harmony to the place. It is said that in Gozo, the locals leave the open doors even when they are gone, criminality being non-existent on this extremely quiet island.



Calypso (mythology) - Wikipedia
Calypso was a nymph in Greek mythology, who lived on the island of Ogygia, where, according ... His patron goddess Athena asks Zeus to order the release of Odysseus from the island, and Zeus orders the messenger Hermes to tell Calypso ...



You will, of course, notice the exotic vegetation so different from the temperate climate - palm trees, cacti, eucalyptus and leanders white or red, with a discreet smell. As a matter of fact, the cactus is especially cultivated by the inhabitants, from its fruits preparing their traditional reddish liqueur and cacti sweet. The Goias are full of good will, so that on cool seaside seaside chances, you have a good chance of having a party with honors with Neapolitan peasants, both young and old, spontaneously gathered at a modest terrace. Their mourning joy attracts tourists as a magnet, and at the end of the evening, no one stops.

How Citadella Has Reborn In Gozo, you should not miss Citadella in Victoria, the fortress that sheltered all the inhabitants of Gozo who fled the Ottomans in the Middle Ages. In 1551, Turkish pirates conquered Gozo and took almost the entire population of only 5,000 inhabitants, the island remaining practically unpopulated, and the Citadella almost completely destroyed. The rescuers were once again the Ioannian knights, who banished the Turks and began restoring the island. It took almost 50 years to repopulate the island and rebuild the Citadella. The Story of Citadelle will "enchant you" in a 360-degree cinema hall where you will be invited by the hologram of the Calypso Nymph.

At Citadella, you can stop for a delicious traditional meal at Ta Rikardu, a small, rustic and intimate restaurant with a history of 40 years, where you will be warmly welcomed. The owner, Rikardu, has a small goat and sheep farm that constantly supplies the restaurant so that every morning his wife pulls fresh cheese on the table. Here I recommend you try the rabbit or goat fries, which are the specialty of the house.
Another stop on the island of Gozo deserves to be made at the Ta'Pinu Church in the village of Gharb. The existence of the Roman Catholic Church dedicated to the Virgin Mary is connected with many miracles, which now fill the walls of the place with the testimonies of hundreds of people. For this reason, the Ta'Pinu church is the most sought-after place of pilgrimage in Malta.

Maltese fest, between saints and fireworks Malta is an attractive destination all year round, but if you want to surprise it in all its traditional splendor, it's good to visit it during the holiday season called the "fest". From May to September, every Saturday, a small village or small town in Malta and Gozo is dressed in a celebration to celebrate with great reputation the spiritual patron, thus thanking them for another year without bad events. Besides the processions where the statue of the saint of each locality is worn on the streets, the fest also means much fun and joy in pure state. The localities of Malta and Gozo enter into a fierce ground fireworks competition, which the Maltese take very seriously and for which they are preparing all year round. The artifacts made by residents are different from what you've seen before. Built in the form of continually moving moors, complex devices create a long-awaited and highly owed show by locals. Unfortunately, this game of fire is left almost every year with victims, sometimes with whole families losing because of this almost insane pastime of the Maltese. Besides, if someone dies under these circumstances, he is declared a national hero. Żebbuġ, a small town in the heart of Malta, whose holy patron is St. Philip, organizes one of the most beautiful works of its kind.

Crowded European countries you should avoid



Some European countries are trying hard to diminish mass tourism, municipalities in tourist areas that have been invaded by tourists at events requiring a series of measures to do so.

Venice, for example, which has only 55,000 inhabitants, is traveled annually by about 30 million tourists. In an attempt to limit their number, the municipality has set a "numerus clausus" of 20,000 people authorized to participate in the Serenissima carnival in San Marco Square, writes the French publication Les Echos.

Barcelona has 1.6 million inhabitants and is traversed by 32 million tourists every year. 60% of the tourist accommodation offer is concentrated between Ramblas and Barrio Gotico. In order to limit the access of tourists, the authorities are imposing drastic rules for opening a new hotel or increasing the number of accommodation places in the central areas, but being more indulgent in terms of the periphery. The regulation also includes accommodation in private homes, the owners of which are required to obtain authorizations from the municipality.

There are 830,000 inhabitants in Amsterdam , but the number of tourists who assault stores every year exceeds 17 million. As such, the municipality decided to ban the opening of any souvenir or fast-food shop in the heart of Amsterdam. Approximately 40 streets are targeted. On the other hand, the tourist accommodation, already limited to 60 days, could be halved. And Budapest has problems of this kind: with 1.7 million inhabitants, the capital of Hungary is transited annually by 4.1 million tourists. Authorities are trying to limit the timetable for bars in the Jewish district, proposing closing them between 24 and 6. Dubrovnik , has 43,000 inhabitants and is visited annually by 4.2 million tourists. In 2016, the Adriatic pearl recorded a record number of 10,388 visitors in a single day. Currently limiting access for tourists is considered, with only 4,000 per day accepted. Santorini is almost suffocated by tourists. With a population of only 13,000 people, the island is transited by 2 million tourists annually. Authorities have imposed a ceiling of 8,000 daily arrivals for this year.
