Oh the Places You’ll NEVER Go…
Wanderlust. The travel bug. Restlessness. Running away. Whatever you call it, human beings were born to be movers and shakers.
Sure, some people may be perfectly content to be homebodies, but your familiar faces just make home even more important for us globetrotters traveling the world for weeks, months, or years at a time.
Where’s your next trip? The Caribbean? Europe? Southeast Asia? We all know the popular destinations like Croatia, Iceland, and Tulum, but what about the trips that take us off the map? In fact, some of the coolest destinations are those off the beaten path, untouched by the sandaled feet of tourists.
If you’re a ‘road less traveled’ kind of person, these are the tantalizing trips that you will never take, strictly because these places—ranging from top-secret military bases to entire islands—are forbidden destinations.
Check out the places your wandering feet will never take you…
North Sentinel Island
Located deep in the Bay of Bengal in the Andaman Islands southwest of Myanmar, North Sentinel Island is heavily wooded, about the size of Manhattan, and a recognized exclusion zone that nobody is allowed within 3 miles of.
The reason for this is that North Sentinel Island is home to the Sentinelese, an indigenous tribe and one of the last known groups of people on the planet that remain virtually untouched by modern civilization. Though some contact has been made throughout history, the Sentinelese population is unknown, and their language is unclassified and unintelligible.
Made infamous by countless works of fiction and folkloric reports of UFO crashes and testing, the Air Force facility known as Area 51 is one of the most well known forbidden destinations in the United States: it’s very name conveys secrecy.
Located 83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas, Area 51 is assumed to be a classified aircraft research facility, but it is more commonly linked with the Roswell UFO incident of 1947.
