For the last post in this travel series PD ponders places that he would love to visit.
- Mont Saint Michel. This spectacular abbey and fort off the north-west coast of France held off invaders due to its accessibility only at low tide.
- The Arctic and the Antarctic. On opposite ends of the globe.
- Quinta da Regaleira, Portugal. Most magnificent architecture and gardens. See PD post May 28th, 2015.
- Japan, for its ancient culture.
- While in Japan, try the luxury train Seven Stars in Kyushu. The demand for cabins is so great that a ballot is held months ahead of each trip.
- Null Island, the real place that does not exist. This "island" is located at precisely zero latitude and zero longitude (0°N 0°E) and is precisely one square metre in area. It is used to flag errors in geocoding. A permanent buoy marks the site.

Note for the curious: PD does not intend to swim out to Null Island.
Note: photographs are from the relevant websites and are the copyright of the respective owners.
Note: PD does not get sponsored by any company and chooses to write about products that catch his eye while on the prowl, without the makers' knowledge. That way he remains impartial.
