Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?
There are undoubtedly a great number of places in the world where I would rather not set foot, many of which I do not yet know and only realise that I would rather not be there upon my arrival. That said, I have decided to list only one for a very particular reason; I detest being cold.
I am not talking about being a little bit chilly, or realising when venturing out on a Friday night without a coat that I in the words of my friends am ‘not as hard as you think you are’. I am talking about that kind of cold that leaves your body convulsing with bone juddering shivers and an uncontrollable rattle in the jaw.
For me this is the purest form of misery, and as such I nominate the Russian village of Oymyakon (or OhMyAkinBones) where the average daily temperature in January is a blood freezing minus 50 degrees Celcius. In fact the lowest recorded temperature there is -70 degrees C!
Not for me thank you!
