I wouldn't mind going the "Gates of Hell" in Turkmenistan. Seeming back in the soviet period a drilling rig was drilling and it caused the ground to cave in and a massive amount of gas was released. The natural gas has been burning for 40 years...

The hole is 230 foot across...

It may sound parochial but genuinely Spurn Head and the Holderness coast.

The way the whole coastline is dynamic with great swathes of land falling into the sea and continually reshaping Spurn Head is something I would like to wander up and down and see in action.

Iran to see all the pre-islamic stuff.

That "Gates of Hell" in Turkmenistan - presumably lots of people died when that happened?

 

Iran appeals to me as well.

I can't see any evidence of deaths at the Gates of Hell. It's possible the drilling crew were on a tea break when it collapsed. The towns are a fair distance so the gas didn't effect them.

Seemingly they set the gas alight and expected it to go out in a few weeks.

It looks interesting to me but I expect the rest of Turkmnitsan doesn't have many tourist attractions...

The lack of tourist attractions is what would probably make Turkmenistan a superb place to visit.

Surely they could concoct some sort of dome to cover it, and then extinguish the fire and start drawing the Gas.

I should like to visit a barber,

I wouldn’t bother. Nothing comes close to gods own.

Don’t get too adventurous and in the thick of nature’s actions FH. We wouldn’t like to lose one of our favourite prolific posters while he was standing admiring nature then in an instant falling into the sea in oblivion when a cliff gives way,

Re the turd wrangling....  there’s a pub in Liverpool where the gents bogs are a tourist attraction. Honest, stop giggling at the back, I’ve been there, I understand why. Not that you’d make the trip specially to see it, not even from Birmingham or Manchester.

but places I haven’t been yet? Sadly in these modern days of enrichment the list gets shorter almost daily. Cape Wrath seems a fairly safe entry, though. And I might even take a piss if and when I finally make it there.

Ohh, good question.

For me, The Lofoten Islands (though it's becoming an Instagram Mecca). The deep Sahara Desert, The Alaskan Wilderness, The deep Australian Outback - I'd want a gun, not for the wildlife but for the locals and Patagonia.

The common theme there is that there's no, or very, very few people. That's how I like it.

Probably not a goer. Check out Centralia in Pennsylvania, where someone did similar to this except it was under a large U.S town rather than the arse end of nowhere.

Didn't end too well.

You should make a long weekend out of it.

Hull has a end of the world feel about it. Spurn point more so.

Train it up.

Iranians tend to be ok.

Iranian theocracy, which robbed the population of the revolution, are a total bunch of cunts.

Exactly. It was either bombed to dust or is at the bottom of the Baltic Sea IMO.

Big thing to just misplace.

The Amber room was in the hold of the Willheim Gustloff when it was torpedoed by a russian sub off Konigsberg east prussia whilst evacuating german civillians.

It was the biggest ever loss of life at sea and is never talked about only the pissant titanic.
