I’ve always had an interest in remote places. What was it like to live so far away when everyone else in the world appeared to be so connected? Places like Easter Island and the dreamy Tristan da Cuhna, which seems to be the epitome of slow paced easy living, offer plenty of time to actually...

The idea that you could wish an annoying baby brother away and have him instantly taken by goblins intrigued me at a very young age.
