- The Bermuda Triangle, North Atlantic;
Shrouded in myth and mystery, the infamous 500,000 square mile stretch in the Atlantic, dubbed the Devil’s Triangle, includes the area between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. The US Coastguard will dispute the existence of this place, but many theories and stories exist about unusual magnetic readings and ships, planes, and people who have disappeared here without a trace. Fortunately it is not considered to be dangerous now, and you can tour St. George, Bermuda and the surrounding vivacious towns.
- The Catacombs, Paris, France;
World famous French tombs called catacombs create a network of old quarry tunnels underneath the streets of Paris. This is the final resting place of around six million Parisians, most who date to the French Revolution. Most are anonymous, as the skulls and bones were taken from the city’s overcrowded graveyards during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Authorities have arranged the bones into macabre displays that the curious from near and far can visit for an experience like nowhere else.
- Cat Island, Japan;
Only a short ferry ride from Japan’s Eastern coast, Tashirojima Island has a population of only 100 humans who dedicate their lives to caring for the island’s majority residents, cats. Originally the island’s inhibitors were encouraged to come as a defense to the island’s mice problem, as they were once known for producing silk. Local fishermen regarded the cats as a sign of good fortune, and eventually built a cat shrine, along with newly built cat shaped cabins for tourists to come and experience the island.
