I'm a little smitten.
I saw a story on Reddit yesterday that was entitled something like "Who the hell lives here?" with a link to this map. Click on it and zoom way out.
That small island in the middle of nowhere is called Tristan da Cunha and is the home to 270 people and one volcano. They live more than 1500 miles from the next closest piece of inhabited land (Santa Helena, which still only contains a few thousand people). People living in Antarctica are closer to big cities than the residents of Tristan da Cunha.
They've got electricity on 24 hours a day and a new Internet cafe. There's one doctor, one channel on TV, and zero airports. They fish, they farm and two of their three main exports are Tristan da Cunha stamps and coins. When the island was evacuated in the early sixties due to volcanic activity, and the residents were moved to another British territory for a few years, nearly every single person chose to return to the island as soon as possoble
I don't know why an island so remote and so devoid of convenience and modern technology appeals to me, but it truly does. Maybe one day, perhaps when I'm far off the east coast of South America, or the south west of coast Africa, I'll get to visit. Maybe it'll be after they get around to building a hotel or a restaurant. Maybe not.
Hold on, Tristan da Cunha. I'm coming. Slowly.
