Nowy Żmigród, Poland
This is not uncommon.
If you travel from Nowy sac'z to Lazejsk you pass it.

Should I just post a list of every hicktown, USA I've been to? List is pretty boring but crazy long....
Why not?
Maybe highlight the big towns.

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...

There's definitely a fascinating story to be told

+1.
Plus, they're half the fun of going to some exotic places.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
