#59 - Virgin Gorda
Christopher Columbus was sailing around the Caribbean Sea when he spotted an island in the far distance; he thought the island's profile resembled a fat woman, lying on her side.
And that's how Mr. Columbus named the island Virgin Gorda or The Fat Virgin; it is one of the many islands that make up the British Virgin Islands.
Thanks to Thorsten for the great view!
