Wish I was: on Socotra Island

I wish 1

It’s like a scene from the film Alice in Wonderland, you expect the blue caterpillar smoking a hookah to pop out from behind the tree any minute.

Imagine waking up on Socotra Island – what a feast for the eyes. You’d think you had time-travelled to another era. Well, it’s not far off the truth for this island. It has been geographically isolated from mainland Africa for the last 6 million years. And like the Galapagos Islands, this island is teeming with hundreds of rare species that are found nowhere else on earth.
