    MacQuarie Island in the sub-Antarctic.  I was there as an expeditioner for a full year from October 1976 to October 1977.   I knew it would be fascinating.  But what I experienced there was almost beyond description.   Imagine steaming slowly towards the shore to be met by thousans of penguins swimming, diving, playing around the ship as it came in.   MacQuarie has three million - yes 3 million! - penguins, 18,000 elephant seals.  It has fur seals, leapard seals, albatross, hundreds of thousand of different types of sea birds.   If you look at some of my hubs you'll see a few pictures of the place.

    The most unusual? I am debating between Yellowstone National Park of USA and Yukon, Canada.

    Yellowstone has the most fascinating geothermal features. Yukon has the most amazing northern landscapes. I have written a hub for each. Which one? I cannot decide.

    Just off one of Rome's favorite shopping streets lies a secluded early-Christian monastery, in which the monks were often barricaded during times of Christian persecution. So, any monks who died through those years had to be buried within the monastery walls. The monks made art from their bones, and today you can tour a seres of small grotto-like chapels, each decorated by thousands of human bones: in one, an alterpiece made entirely of aged human shoulderblades, in another, a frieze comprised of dried human skulls. Weird and creepy and awesome and chilling and incredible all at once.

    The most unusual destination I had when I went to Africa. That is the most unforgettable travel I had in my entire life.

    Unusual for Americans is where I lived on Halmahera Island in Indonesia, starting 1983.  A lot has changed there since then, too.
