Little Slices of Nowhere

Have you ever heard of Transnistria? Perhaps Somaliland sounds more familiar? Or
Nagorno-Karabakh? The latter, I know, has been in the news for years because of the dispute over territory there with
Armenia and Azerbajan. But that’s all I know.

It seems that places like these, the small, odd places, are the ones that are now getting some attention. They are
the little motes on the map that some adventurers want to visit. A new show by Simon Reeve called Holidays in the
Danger Zone: Places that Don’t Exist, is written up in
the Guardian.
