  • It's a very beautiful island. I wouldn't recommend the nightlife but star gazing, trail and mountain hikes, SCUBA and Snorkeling are amazing. If they can allow commercial flights again it would be a great place to visit.
  • Lost me a geography bee. Absolutely terrible place. I hate it. Just kidding I'm sure it is a fine place
  • With a population of about 900 inhabitants, you'll see more donkeys. Absolutely remote and fascinating. Once in a lifetime opportunity.
  • Bad call number in any time came from this region
  • Awesome map, I love to build my base at the quarry as there are beaver dams there and right now I'm prepping for the tek cave in the volcano. Just need better melee muts on my rexes :(
