9 Places To Avoid While On Vacation

Everyone tells you the best and most beautiful places worthy of your money and time, to spend your vacation in. But how about those to avoid? No one wants to have their vacation ruined, right? We feel your pain! Which is why we’ve come up with a short list of travel destinations you should really pay attention to. Check it out!

1. Buford, Wyoming

Buford, Wyoming

Although it used to have a popuilation of two, Buford now only has a single resident. Located in the middle of Wyoming, the least populated state in the union, this place should not be on your travelling plans.

2. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

The Patch is a basically immobile, gigantic mass of trash out in the middle of the Pacific, which everyone tends to ignore. Composed entirely of plastic bottles, chemical sludge, and other kind of debris, this is larger than the state of Texas.

3. Alnwick Poison Garden, England

Alnwick Poison Garden, England

The Alnwick Poison Garden is a garden full of plants that can kill you. Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. Sure, this is not your average botanical garden, but I think I’ll brign my mother-in-law.

4. Ramree Island, Burma

Ramree Island, Burma

Ramree Island can be found in the beautiful Burma, although it’s a giant swamp full of thousands of saltwater crocodiles, as well as mosquitos loaded with malaria, and venomous scorpions. Scratch that, will you?

5. The Zone of Alienation, Ukraine

The Zone of Alienation, Ukraine

The Zone of Alienation is the 19-mile decommissioned perimeter surrounding the grounds of the Chernobyl incident. Administered by a branch of government, no one can get in – as if you’d want to, right? However, a few hundred residents refused to move. No comment.

6. Ilha de Queimada Grande, Brazil

Ilha de Queimada Grande, Brazil

Ilha de Queimada Grande isn’t a fantastical island getaway, although it sounds pleasant enough. This is an island full of thousands of snakes; its name literally means, “Snake Island” – note to self: learn foreign languages, might save your life. Here you will find the highest concentration of snakes in the world. Dreamy, isn’t it?

7. St. Helena

St. Helena

The same place where Napoleon was imprisoned and spent his final days may sound historically interesting, but there’s no functioning airport. The only way you can get on or off the island is via container ships from South Africa, which only come every few months. And it’s not lookint that appealing, if you ask me.

8. Izu Island, Japan

Izu Island, Japan

The Izus are a group of volcanic islands located off the southern coast of Japan’s Honshu island. Ttechnically part of Tokyo, here is where the air constantly smells of sulfur; as a result, residents have been evacuated twice—in 1953 and 2000—because of “dangerously high levels of gas.” Not funny.

9. Mud Volcanoes of Azerbaijan

Supposedly, mud tratments are goor for my face. I don’t know about that but when  these muddy volcanoes actually erupt, it’s not exactly a pretty sight. In 2001, a new island grew out of the Caspian Sea, due to an increase in volcanic activity. Generally, they go off every twenty years, and when they do, they shoot flames and deposit tons of mud. Watch yourselves!
