Default Strangest place you have ever shipped

For those of you that have ebay, what's the strangest place you have ever shipped, just curious.

Over the course of 10 years, surprisingly I haven't shipped anywhere too exotic. I'd say out of 2000 transactions, ~80% have been to the US and Canada.
approx ~15% to Japan, Taiwan, Finland, Sweden
~5% to Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong

shipped to France, the UK, Italy about 2x-3x each

Maybe once each to Mexico, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece. And all of those had issues (lost or buyer claimed issues regarding a delay)!

I can tell you I think Poland is about the most expensive I've shipped to!

Strangest to me was probably Estonia. I had never even heard of it before I got the order from there. I just had to google it to get some general info.

I shipped to my sister's next door neighbor once. Didn't realize it till a few days after I shipped when I went over to her house and the address rang a bell.

I used to do a lot of hockey deals with a dude in Sweden. The guy even hooked me up with the famous Forsberg scoring the SO winner in the '94 Olympics stamp at one point during our deals.

I shipped a Colorado Avalanche team set to Brazil a few months back. Thought that was kind of odd.
