<p>If you're into quirky passport stamps that really tell a story, then Akhzivland is a must. Located on the northern Mediterranean coast of Israel, Akhzivland is a micro-nation founded in 1970 by Eli Avivi. The 2.5-acre self-declared state has a population of two, but hosts visitors and has its own passport stamp.</p>

    What these mostly have in common is the expense of getting there. I would not say that you need to be intrepid to visit Antactica these days, just have plenty of money. And unless you actually trek there, what’s so brag-worthy about seeing Machu Picchu? Even Myanmar is now making its way onto the tourist trail - do I get extra “credit” for visiting in 2004?

    The Falkland Islands should also be included. It meets the criteria of being remote and challenging to get to and the scenery is fantastic. The residents are friendly and the bird life including the penguins are worth the effort it takes to reach the remote islands.
