4 Hidden Islands The World Needs To Know

The world is a wide and mysterious place. Even though our technology is meant to make it smaller, the world is somehow expanding in different ways. Different untouched lands and islands exist in various parts of our planets. Some of these islands may pose danger while a majority of them just scream adventure and beauty.

If you’re a person who enjoys adventure and the water, some of these islands are meant for you. However, if you’re planning on enjoying a nice glass of red wine and visiting spas, then there definitely are islands which tend to those needs. These places are usually unexplored or often too exclusive to be a traditional tourist destination.

So, we have put together four islands that will be intriguing to your interest and you’ll definitely have fun exploring them.

1. Pitcairn Island, Pacific Ocean

Pitcairn Island is one of the unique islands that’s located among a few volcanic islands around the British Islands. It’s a small island which consists of about 4 families and about 50 inhabitants. If you’re planning to head there, you might have to stay with the locals instead of hotels or hostels; as there are none on that island.

If you’re a technology dependent person, then you definitely are up for a challenge because most people on that island are strangers to technology. However, it’s definitely a place worth visiting because, for once, you get to unwind and let yourself go. If you love culture and heritage, then you would enjoy being part of the Polynesians and Bounty Mutineers.

By end of this trip, whether you’re traveling with a partner or alone, you’ll enjoy the calmness and indulge in a completely different culture which can be refreshing.

Note: If you get lost, try describing the buildings because there are no street names.

2. Monuriki Island, Fiji

The Monuriki Island is a tiny island located among a cluster of islands. This cluster of islands is also known as Mamanuca. The beauty of this island is breathtaking as it’s surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna as well as amazing coral reefs. It’s no surprise that this island became the Castaway Island that hosted the lost and lonely Tom Hanks.

If you’re wondering if you’re going to be stranded, don’t worry. There are inhabitants on that island. However, this island isn’t a typical tourist destination due to its isolation as well as the obscure way to get there. Just like the previous island, you would be able to unwind and enjoy your holidays far from technology and constant communication.

If you enjoy the flora and fauna, you’ll be amazed by all the plants and animals you can find there. From the Fiji Chameleon to the ripe beautiful coconuts. You’ll find yourself in for a treat.

3. Lanzarote, West Africa

Lanzarote is an island that’s located among the cluster of the Canary Islands. This island is heavily influenced by the Spanish regime allowing it to not only adopt its language but also its culture. Unlike the other islands, this island is an island of luxury. It’s much better suited to be explored with a partner or on a honeymoon.

You’ll not only be able to enjoy a fine glass of wine cultivated from the best vineyards, but you would be living a life of luxury. You’ll be able to explore the nature as well as the beautiful scenery. If you’re a person who enjoys exquisite luxury, then don’t forget to visit the cactus garden to embrace the beauty of the cactuses from all around the world. The highlight of this place is, however, its pristine blue waters as well as its beautiful corals.

Swimming there will not only create a sense of peace, but it will also rekindle the romance between you and your partner.

4. Pig Beach, Bahama

The Pig Beach, or better known as Major Cay, is located on the coast of Bahamas. Its unique name is due to the fact that this island’s inhabitants are all pigs. You can notice pigs swimming on the beach and getting a tan on the side. Some say that these pigs escaped from a ship while others say they were the original inhabitants. However, these rumors were never proven.

This beach isn’t for someone to spend a night, however, there are various tours that go there to observe these happy pigs. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy watching pigs acting like humans? So if you’re ever in the Bahamas, make sure that this beach is part of your bucket list.

You won’t regret it.

In Conclusion

The world is a wonderful place, so never view it from a single point of view. Escape reality for some time and explore these amazing islands.

10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

We all fall into the trap of judging a person’s character by their appearance. How wrong we are! All too often, the real character of the person only appears when some negative event hits them or you. Then you may see a toxic person emerging from the ruins and it is often a shock.

A truly frightening example is revealed in the book by O’Toole in Bowman called Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Instincts Betray Us. A perfectly respectable, charming, well dressed neighbor was found to have installed a torture chamber in his garage where he was systematically abusing kidnapped women. This is an extreme example, but it does show how we can be totally deceived by a person’s physical appearance, manners and behavior.

So, what can you do? You want to be able to assess personal qualities when you come into contact with colleagues, fresh acquaintances and new friends who might even become lifelong partners. You want to know if they are:

  • honest
  • reliable
  • competent
  • kind and compassionate
  • capable of taking the blame
  • able to persevere
  • modest and humble
  • pacific and can control anger.

The secret is to reserve judgment and take your time. Observe them in certain situations; look at how they react. Listen to them talking, joking, laughing, explaining, complaining, blaming, praising, ranting, and preaching. Only then will you be able to judge their character. This is not foolproof, but if you follow the 10 ways below, you have a pretty good chance of not ending up in an abusive relationship.

1. Is anger a frequent occurrence?

All too often, angry reactions which may seem to be excessive are a sign that there are underlying issues. Do not think that every person who just snaps and throws his/her weight around mentally and physically is just reacting normally. Everyone has an occasional angry outburst when driving or when things go pear-shaped.

But if this is almost a daily occurrence, then you need to discover why and maybe avoid that person. Too often, anger will escalate to violent and aggressive behavior. You do not want to be near someone who thinks violence can solve personal or global problems.

2. Can you witness acts of kindness?

How often do you see this person being kind and considerate? Do they give money to beggars, donate to charity, do voluntary work or in some simple way show that they are willing to share the planet with about 7 billion other people?

I was shocked when a guest of mine never showed any kindness to the weak and disadvantaged people in our town. She was ostensibly a religious person, but I began to doubt the sincerity of her beliefs.

“The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and how he treats people who can’t fight back.”

Abigail Van Buren

3. How does this person take the blame?

Maybe you know that s/he is responsible for a screw-up in the office or even in not turning up on time for a date. Look at their reaction. If they start blaming other colleagues or the traffic, well, this is an indication that they are not willing to take responsibility for their mistakes.

4. Don’t use Facebook as an indicator.

You will be relieved to know that graphology (the study of that forgotten skill of handwriting) is no longer considered a reliable test of a person’s character. Neither is Facebook stalking, fortunately. A study showed that Facebook use of foul language, sexual innuendo and gossip were not reliable indicators of a candidate’s character or future performance in the workplace.

5. Read their emails.

Now a much better idea is to read the person’s emails. Studies show that the use of the following can indicate certain personality traits:

  • Too many exclamation points may reveal a sunny disposition
  • Frequent errors may indicate apathy
  • Use of smileys is the only way a person can smile at you
  • Use of the third person may reveal a certain formality
  • Too many question marks can show anger
  • Overuse of capital letters is regarded as shouting. They are a definite no-no in netiquette, yet a surprising number of  people still use them.

6. Watch out for the show offs.

Listen to people as they talk. How often do they mention their achievements, promotions, awards and successes? If this happens a lot, it is a sure indication that this person has an over-inflated view of his/her achievements. They are unlikely to be modest or show humility. What a pity!  Another person to avoid.

7. Look for evidence of perseverance.

A powerful indicator of grit and tenacity is when a person persists and never gives up when they really want to achieve a life goal. Look for evidence of them keeping going in spite of enormous difficulties.

Great achievements by scientists and inventors all bear the hallmark of perseverance. We only have to think of Einstein, Edison (who failed thousands of times) and Nelson Mandela to get inspiration. The US Department of Education is in no doubt about how grit, tenacity and perseverance will be key success factors for youth in the 21st century.

8. Their empathy score is high.

Listen to how they talk about the less fortunate members of our society such as the poor, immigrants and the disabled. Do you notice that they talk in a compassionate way about these people? The fact that they even mention them is a strong indicator of empathy.

People with zero empathy will never talk about the disadvantaged. They will rarely ask you a question about a difficult time or relationship. They will usually steer the conversation back to themselves. These people have zero empathy and in extreme cases, they are psychopaths who never show any feelings towards their victims.

9. Learn how to be socially interactive.

We are social animals and this is what makes us so uniquely human. If a person is isolated or a loner, this may be a negative indicator of their character. You want to meet a person who knows about trust, honesty and loyalty. The only way to practice these great qualities is to actually interact socially. The great advantage is that you can share problems and celebrate success and joy together.

“One can acquire everything in solitude, except character.”

Stendhal

 10. Avoid toxic people.

These people are trying to control others and often are failing to come to terms with their own failures. Typical behavior and conversations may concern:

  • Envy or jealousy
  • Criticism of partners, colleagues and friends
  • Complaining about their own lack of success
  • Blaming others for their own bad luck or failure
  • Obsession with themselves and their problems

Listen to these people talk and you will quickly discover that you need to avoid them at all costs because their negativity will drag you down. In addition, as much as you would like to help them, you are not qualified to do so.

Now, having looked at some of the best ways to judge a person, what about yourself? How do others see you? Why not take Dr. Phil’s quiz and find out. Can you bear it?
