There are times when we get bored with our daily routine and work just creeps on our nerves. Thus, once we have the time and the resources, we tend to try something different to escape our humdrum life. For some, their means of escape is travelling. And for the brave few, it’s not the ‘normal travel’, with the hotels, resorts, and all the other tourist stuff.
Meet Ian Stuart, a 65-year-old British millionaire. Ian made his fortune buying and selling luxury yachts but now he’s making headlines for an entirely different reason. Mr. Stewart is the first (and potentially only) person to sleep on the world’s newest island, located more than a thousand miles off the coast of New Zealand.
The new island emerged after an underwater volcanic eruption.
The island emerged from the South Pacific five months ago after the Hunga Tonga volcano erupted. The island is said to be unstable and can sink at any moment. The landscape looks kind of bleak. There are no trees so it’s just Ian, the island, and the vast ocean.
The island is said to be unstable and can sink at any moment.
Ian spent 11 days on Hunga Tonga, a small and remote island located 2200 miles from Sydney, Australia. He made history by being the first person to spend the night on the island. And well, he may just probably be the last.
Ian spent 11 days and nights alone on the new island in the South Pacific.
Ian is the first person to have spent a single night on the youngest island in the world.
He may also be the last, as experts say that the island is sinking.
He booked his experience via a travel company that specializes in providing holidays on remote islands.
Stuart lived on seagull eggs and squid for 11 days.
Hunga Tonga is located in the South Pacific ocean.
The island is only five months old.
Experts believe that the island will soon disappear.
Stuart does not know how to swim and had no modes of transportation from the island.
He was connected to a satellite phone throughout his stay, though, which allowed him to contact a safety team in case of an emergency.
A green bud emerges from the island – a sign of life that adds color to the otherwise bleak landscape.
Stuart did not inform his wife about his whereabouts due to the danger involved.
Cracks are evident on the island’s surface.
Watch his epic adventure below:
On their website, Docastaway notes that Ian requested to be out-of-touch.
“Ian didn’t want us to be on emergency standby at the nearest town and nor did he want us to finish giving him the last instructions on the first day and he tried to kick us out of his island after only a few minutes there.”
There’s no denying that this is one bold man. Sounds cool but scary! Would you try something like this?

This is One of the Most Haunted and Sinister Islands on Earth and One Man Wants to Live Here.
It’s located on an uninhabited island off the treacherous coast of France and has a reputation for sending people mad.
This isolated lighthouse called Tevennec, which stands on an uninhabited island in the coast of France, has been known to make its past occupants mad. So why is this man willing to spend 60 days living here?
Marc Pointud is the founder of the National Society for Heritage, Lighthouses, and Beacons, which aims to preserve the lost lighthouses in the country. He plans to live in the lighthouse for around two months, all by himself. Now this lighthouse has become infamous because of the stories about former lightkeepers losing their minds during their stay. It is also plagued with ghost stories and tales of mysterious deaths.
Tevennec has been around since 1875 and legend says that the first guard went completely insane.
The combination of crashing waves and sharp rocks is a treacherous condition for sailors, and many lives have been lost in this terrifying location....

Diving is a great outdoor activity, especially for vacationers looking for adventure and fun. With correct training and adequate orientation, it sure is one exciting hobby! Through diving, people are given the opportunity to see the beauty of the underwater and marvel in the greatness of the creations. It is also a great way of learning something new about marine life and species. But what if a huge sea creature suddenly joins your pack as if it is part of the team? It may get scary especially if it is a well-known dangerous animal such as a shark.

Initial reports said it was a pyrosome; we are really not sure, but after the video went viral, Ryan updated the description of his YouTube page and indicated that the sea creature is most likely a giant squid egg mass.
