Visit the Strange

Looking for an unusual vacation spot? Then you might consider one of eight strange destinations as listed in this article on the Matador Network. There's Mount Thor (pictured), in Nunavut, Canada which has the highest (4101ft) vertical drop, if you're into rock climbing... or falling, as the case may be. Or you can swing by the Principality of Sealand which is nothing more than several gun platforms in the English Channel that were abandoned by the British after World War II. It was declared an independent nation in 1967 and has its own currency and can issue passports and visas. Sealand is also for sale, if you ever dreamt of owning your own country, and let's face it, all of us here at WU have had that dream I'm sure. But no matter where you might want to go in the world, this list could be a great starting point.

some cool places! you know Sealand would make on heck of a great home for all us wuvians, we'd all be expats then! or we could just rent it for a week and have the mother of all parties. 😜

I had never heard of most of these places. It's hard to imagine that there is still land that hasn't been claimed by anyone in this day and age, like Bir Tawil on the border of Egypt or places left unexplored such as the Zilov Gap in Siberia. I'd love to see them.
