#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!
