I discovered Vanuatu
Well, not really, I mean it existed way before me and I did not physically discover it... But I first learned about it today, this very morning, out of total random. Never mind the details, it would be a bit long and boring to explain, but it was at work. So I discovered about Vanuatu, an island nation in the Pacific Ocean, southern of the hemisphere, relatively near Australia, if it has to be near anywhere. In fact, it is far from everywhere. Which gives it, in my eyes at least, a certain aura of mystery. There are plenty of fascinating tidbits to learn about Vanuatu, my favorite one is that it is a volcanic island. Now that makes it even more exotic and mysterious. Like the setting of some cheesy adventure movie. Being originally from the middle of nowhere myself, I feel a sort of kinship from remote places and this one fits the bill. And it is a volcanic island. A volcanic island. So now I know about Vanuatu. And even the name is cool.
