Just a few interesting ones off the top of my head:

Bohol Island, Philippines
Nauto, a village deep in the Peruvian amazon.
Shibu Onsen, Japan
Poon Hill, Penang, Malaysia
A soviet prison (I was born there during the soviet era).
A Ukrainian operating table.
Secret military base in Transnistria.
Quba, Azerbaijan (According to wiki, it's the largest Jewish city outside of Israel).
A military compound in Egypt
Volcán Concepción & Volcán Maderas - Ometepe, Nicaragua
Bob Marleys House/Grave - Jamaica
Rybnitza (Ribnitz) - Transnistria
Swam in a Meromictic lake (GIYF) in Malayisa

Should I keep going?

I have obviously been to 100's of villages, towns & cities that i'm confident no one has been to...
Without getting personal, how do you get to travel so much?

I don't think anyone cares about the names of places, half as much as the stories behind them
Some stories you don't want to know.  ;)
I just found a new supply of forks!

Maybe the question was not clear enough. But to explain my answer, I feel that people think of travel as an expensive & unsustainable hobby. For me travel is life, exploring the world and its intricate secrets is what gives me pleasure. Others seem to work for 40 years so they can retire in a big house, and perhaps see a new country every year if they are lucky. I'd rather see the world now and be more experiential for 40 years & then spend my last years being with my family, playing with my grandchildren every day....
