World’s Most Mysterious Islands

When something is out of the ordinary and unusual for us we feel fear. When we see places that are completely the opposite of what we are used to it’s a bit frightening. There are places in the world that people are not familiar with, and are really interesting to see, like these strange islands that actually exist:
