According to CBC News, Swiss travel agency Babel Travel has partnered with Robert Young Pelton, an avid explorer who runs the website Comebackalive.com and author of The World's Most Dangerous Places.

Reportedly, the travel agency offers organized tours of six war-torn or isolated places (Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Somaliland and Sudan, with plans to add trips to Yemen, Burma, Colombia, Sierra Leone and Liberia) that are normally flagged by many governments as places where reasonable-minded individuals should avoid at all costs.

If the thought of getting kidnapped, tortured, shot or violently killed sounds more fun than a day at the office, know you're not alone.
