Here’s to you, Tuvalu.

Pretty much every time that we get a new idea for a post, we always seek the unusual. Most of the time we hit that target, but as the world gets ever small and, as it seems, bank balances get ever larger (for some) we always scratch our heads, rub our hands and try to find destinations that are atypical. This can consist of an interesting city, or perhaps out of the ordinary / non-standard activities.

But, here we’re really pushing out the boat, literally and figuratively. Please let us introduce you to Tuvalu. Known on almost every “least known places” lists on the internet, Tuvalu really deserves  some love. (But not too much, and not too often. The people need their space.) To give you a sense of how much space there is in Tuvalu – in 2019, only 3,700 souls lived there. There are mediocre rock music clubs that hold more people than that. Which is the perfect reason to get Tuvalu on your travel list. Can you hear the quiet?

Formerly known as the Ellice Islands) is an island country and microstate in the Polynesian subregion of Oceania in the Pacific Ocean. Its islands are situated about midway between Hawaii and Australia. They lie east-northeast of the Santa Cruz Islands (which belong to the Solomon Islands), northeast of Vanuatu, southeast of Nauru, south of Kiribati, west of Tokelau, northwest of Samoa and Wallis and Futuna, and north of Fiji. So you can get there, but you need to put some effort into it. And, above and beyond the sheer beauty and exclusivity of the place, would you believe that they have a football (soccer to Americans) team. The Tuvalu National Football Association is an associate member of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) and is seeking membership in FIFA.
