10 Best Places to Visit in Saint Helena

What To Do in St Helena

This trip to the St. Helena took place from 15 - 18 February 2020, before the major current travel restrictions. I do not encourage anyone to travel now. #StayHome. Here's a video with my thoughts on the current situation:


St. Helena may just be one of my favorite places I’ve ever visited. The Saints are some of the kindest people I’ve ever come across in my travels. Because I had such a great time, I thought I’d try something different for this video about St. Helena.

I normally make videos here on YouTube about airlines, but perhaps the most amazing part of aviation are the places it can take. Places like St Helena. So, in this video about St Helena, I’m trying a little experiment: Let’s check out some things on the ground in St Helena! We’ll explore some of the highlights of St. Helena and some of what I enjoyed while I was here. Let me know what you think about this experiment by leaving comments. I always appreciate feedback! And next week, I’ll post a more typical video about my return to the mainland.

St. Helena is home to epic history, out-of-this-world scenery, and incredible opportunities for intreprid travelers.

We’ll explore the infamous Jacobs Ladder, Napoleon’s two residences on St. Helena, some of the hiking available on the island, as well as some of the most amazing vistas.

This is my first attempt at a video about something unrelated to aviation, so I’d appreciate your feedback. I think it’s probably fair to say I need to expand my coverage of things like accomodations and food if I continue with this. Also, maybe I’ll do this on a separate channel. Anyway, let me know what you think of this first attempt. And, also, let me know if you’re heading to St. Helena once we can all travel again!

St. Helena - a remote island in the Atlantic | (Travel Documentary) DW Documentary

Every third week, a British Royal Mail ship begins its journey from Cape Town to Saint Helena, the remote island in the Atlantic where Napoleon was once in exile.

It’s like the end of the world in the middle of the Atlantic. Five days, with a northwesterly course, and only then do the sheer black cliffs appear in front of RMS St. Helena. The island’s 4500 residents are often waiting impatiently for the ship’s arrival and panic if the schedule changes. Director Thomas Denzel and his team went on the journey to Saint Helena and met the people living on the island. Many of the residents are descendants of people who were sent into exile there by the British crown - the most famous among them, the French Emperor Napoleon. This is a report about life at the end of the world, loneliness, unique vegetation, and a very special journey.

Flying from St Helena to Cape Town

This trip to the St. Helena Airport took place 15 February 2020, before the major current travel restrictions. This is not a time to travel, but instead...please Stay Home! Stick around to the end of the video for some of my thoughts about the state of travel today.

In this video, I'll share a bit from behind the scenes at the St. Helena airport as well as some scenes from the flight back to Cape Town with Airlink. But the real star of the show on the flight from St Helena to Cape Town was the approach at sunset past Table Mountain. It was truly jaw-dropping.

Watching this approach into Cape Town from St. Helena – undoubtedly the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen from the air – was an opportunity to pause and reflect.

I have always taken great comfort – even assigned some of my own identity to the fact that, thanks to commercial aviation, I can get anywhere, anytime, in unbelievable comfort. Producing these videos about St. Helena has been a cathartic process for me. A reminder of what was possible not too long ago.

Of course, travel like this is not possible now. We’re each doing our part, staying home, washing our hands, maintaining social distance. These things are hard, we all know that. We miss being in the sky. We miss what aviation provides – that’s connection. And, stunning views like this. Views, I’m sorry to say, I didn’t fully appreciate before this crisis occurred.

Aviation brings the world together. A place like St. Helena – previously weeks away – becomes only a matter of hours from anywhere else on the planet. But, now we’re more apart than we’ve ever been.

We’re separated from our family, our friends, and the rest of the world. I hope we use this time to celebrate the small moments and to feel gratitude for what we can enjoy.

I feel for everyone who works in travel or people who travel for work. Your world has been rocked. These are strange times. But we know this: We know travel will return. Yes! It will be different, but it will return. Will travel be what it once was? Will the glamor be gone? I don’t know.

But I am sure of this: It will come back. Humans are explorers. We yearn to see the world, to seek new experiences, to make strangers our friends, to see new places. Commercial aviation will make this possible again.

I look forward to getting back in the air, to connecting with the world, as soon as it’s possible to do so. In the meantime, I’ll continue posting on this channel with the goal of bringing a little joy to you, along with a reminder of what was, and maybe a prediction or two about what will be.

Here's Wendover Productions' Documentary about the Airport:

10 Most Isolated Places to Live in the World

Get more Tips here!

Sometimes we tend to exaggerate and say that we live in the middle of nowhere, but these people... they REALLY live in the middle of nowhere. And, for you to get a better idea of what we mean, here are the 10 most isolated habited places in the world.

1. LA RINCONADA, PERU
This is the highest human settlement on earth. You can find it at 17,000 feet above sea level in the Peruvian Andes. It has a population of 50,000 and their economy relies on the gold they mine from nearby gold mines. The town lacks plumbing and sanitary drainage systems but does have mercury contamination from the mining activities as well. So, that’s a hard
place to live in.

2. CHANGTANG, TIBET
It's known as The Roof of the World, at 9,000 feet. The winters are cold and Arctic-like.
They live as nomadic pastoralists, being known as 'Changpa', or 'Drokpa' together with snow leopards and yaks. Ah, and, if you want to go there, you’ll need a permit to enter the area.

3. VILLA LAS ESTRELLAS, CHILE
It has a summer population of 150 and a winter population of 80. There is a ‘Correos de Chile’ post office staffed in the summer by a postal worker and by the command of the base in the winter. And they even have a Villa Las Estrellas Primary School with 3 computers AND internet access! (that part is actually quite surprising…)

4. EDINBURGH OF THE SEVEN SEAS, SAINT HELENA
It's the most remote permanent settlement on Earth, being 2,173 kilometres from the nearest other human settlement, on Saint Helena. In 1961, the whole population left because of the eruption of a volcano, but most of them came back and rebuilt the place in 1963.

5. SUPAI VILLAGE, ARIZONA
This is the most remote community in the United States being the only place in the United States where mail is still carried out by mules. Located within the Grand Canyon, it is only accessible by foot, pack animal or helicopter, and as of the 2010 census, the CDP had a population of 208.

6. COOBER PEDY, AUSTRALIA
This is the opal capital of the world because of the quantity of precious opals that are mined there. The name Coober Pedy comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, which means boys' waterhole. Visitors attractions include the mines, the graveyard and the underground churches. And there are several motels offering underground accommodation

7. LONGYEARBYEN, NORWAY
This is the world's northernmost settlement of any kind with more than 1,000 permanent residents. They live a combination of an Arctic climate tempered by the North Atlantic Current, and experience midnight sun on half of the year and polar night the other half, so it's
a bit crazy. Then they have strange laws such as ban on cats, a restriction on how much alcohol an individual can purchase on a monthly basis, and a requirement that any individuals venturing outside carry a rifle for protection against polar bears. Also if you die there they'll have to take your corpse to another town, they can't bury you there because your body will stay forever.

8. PALMERSTON, COOK ISLANDS
There is no safe entry for large ships and it enjoys a tropical climate but is exposed to severe tropical cyclones. 62 people live in Palmerston, all but three descended from English sailor William Marsters so there are still many family links and common ancestors between these atolls, because William Marsters and his three wifes had quite a large family of some 23 children, whose descendants now inhabit Palmerston.

9. SIWA OASIS, EGYPT
This is an urban oasis between the Qattara Depression and the Great Sand Sea. It is one of Egypt's most isolated settlements with about 33,000 people, mostly Berbers, who developed a unique culture and a distinct dialect called Siwi. It's the home to an oracle of Ammon, where you can still visit the ruins.

10. WHITTIER, ALASKA
In 2016, they were 214 people living there. It is very popular with tourists because of its
abundance of wildlife and natural beauty. Just imagine, Whittier is located within the
Chugach National Forest, the second-largest national forest in the U.S. However, the only land access is through the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, a mixed-use road and rail
tunnel.

Brisbane Travel Guide: Best Places to Visit in Australia and The Pacific.

Brisbane, capital of Queensland, is a large city on the Brisbane River. Clustered in its South Bank cultural precinct are the Queensland Museum and Sciencentre, with noted interactive exhibitions. Another South Bank cultural institution is Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, among Australia's major contemporary art museums. Looming over the city is Mt. Coot-tha, site of Brisbane Botanic Gardens.

Brisbane is perhaps the best place to get acquainted with Aussie culture. It's a humble city with a modest skyline, quaint neighborhoods and a friendly populace. Yet Brisbane possesses the urban allure of a large metropolis with a substantial music scene and numerous world-class museums.
