Islands You Didn’t Know Exist

From Pico Island to North Sentinel Island this is a list of islands you didn't know exist.
 6. Utila The smallest of the Honduras Bay islands is Utila. Columbus mentions it in his ship’s log books during his fourth voyage. The island is a very popular backpacker destination and a favourite of divers. Which makes a lot of sense since this tiny island has twelve dive centres. It has beautiful white beaches and the world’s largest barrier reef outside of Australia. Oh ya, and if that’s not enough for you, you can swim with whale sharks there as well. If you are into that sort of thing. *You know the thing about a shark, he's got... lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye.* Oh..sorry.. Whale sharks are not really dangerous like the great white in Jaws as they feed on plankton, not us.

5. Staniel Cay The Staniel Cay Island is located about 250 miles southeast of Florida in the Bahamas , roughly 75 miles south of Nassau. And it’s small. About 2 and half square miles. Have you ever seen the James Bond movie Thunderball from the sixties? It starred Sean Connery as Bond of course. Anyways parts of the movie were filmed at Thunderball Grotto, a nearby hollowed out island that has some pretty gnarly caves. That’s for all you spelunkers out there.

4. Saba Saba Island is part of the Dutch Caribbean. It is affectionately known as the ‘unspoiled queen of the caribbean’. That’s so sweet. It’s is home to roughly 2000 folks who are from all over the world. Christopher Columbus apparently saw the island in 1493, but chickened out on landing there because the rocks looked ‘too dangerous’. No big beaches or touristy resorts on Saba, but you will find an active volcano, sweet!

3. Gavdos Gavdos is the southernmost of the Greek islands. There’s less than fifty people that actually live on the island. How about this for you outdoorsy types, free camping! And for you types that love baring it all without fear of judgement or incarceration, extremely lax nudity laws! Gavdos is a favourite of backpackers as well as those who love to get naked. Did I mention their nudity laws are pretty non-existent? Well you can’t mention it enough. And you need to take a special ferry boat to get there.

2. Fernando De Noronha The Fernando De Noronha is actually made up of a group of 21 small islands in the Atlantic Ocean about 220 miles off the coast of Brazil. It is said that the very best beach in the world can be found in these islands. Brazilians know their beaches, and soccer, and festivals, and waxes, so I’ll take their word on that. Only 420 tourists are allowed on the islands at any given time and it’s is also very pricey to go there.

1. Palmyra Atoll The Palmyra Atoll is located in the Pacific Ocean almost due south of the Hawaiian Islands. Atoll means a ring shaped island chain. This chain is classified as unoccupied and is recognized as an unorganized incorporated territory by the U.S.government. Although it is considered unoccupied, there are 420 people who populate these islands. Excuse me...they are referred to as non-occupants. They are staff and scientists that work for different departments of the U.S government and for the Nature Conservancy. Now let all the conspiracy nuts….oops I mean theorists go crazy! No I don’t mean crazy as insane, I mean ,,well you know...aww..forget it.

Amazing Dubai



Having expanded along both banks of the Creek, Dubai is divided into two parts - Deira on the northern side and Bur Dubai to the south, as well as the top tourist destination of Jumeirah.

Abras, the traditional water taxis, are regularly used each day to cross people over to either side of the Creek. Each side has its share of fine mosques and busy souqs, public buildings, shopping malls, hotels, office towers, banks, hospitals, schools, apartments and villas. Dubai is blessed with golden sunshine and silvery beaches.

From the timeless tranquility of the desert to the lively bustle of the souk, Dubai does not only boast the best contemporary sightings but has also preserved some of the most intriguing historical attractions.



Leonardo da Vinci artwork makes auction history at Christie's



A rare rediscovered painting by Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci has become the most expensive piece of art ever sold at auction. Leonardo's masterwork, "Salvator Mundi," a depiction of Christ as "Saviour of the World", went for four times its estimated value. The artwork has gone under the hammer for a record-breaking $450.3m. It's a far cry from 1958 when it fetched a mere 60 dollars. At the time, it was thought to be painted by a student of da Vinci, rather than the master himself. But is this a sign of renewed respect for the old masters, or the result of some savvy marketing?
