This rough pentagonal shaped island of Pohnpei, Micronesia is the 93rd answer in the countdown to #100. This is also the location of Nan Modal, a feature in Contest #16. At only 6 months into his epic journey, Gary found an unspoiled paradise while on this Island, and called it the most beautiful island in the pacific.
*Gary’s Note* If there is one place I’ve discovered which I would consider a real hidden travel treasure, it is Micronesia, and in particular the island of Pohnpei. I was only there for three days but it was a great three days. Nan Modal is on a par with Easter Island in my mind, but it never has received the same level of attention (someone needs to write a book proposing that aliens built it).
