comment Is it viable to move around Iceland using public transport?
@JonathanReez Perhaps, which is why I mentioned it, although most people don't seem to generally consider planes part of the public transport system (although I can certainly see an argument either way). But like I said, planes do exist and the locals use them to get around occasionally.

comment Is it possible for ancient undiscovered islands to exists on earth?
After the alteration to the question to be more specifically interested in old ones, yeah, it's becoming more geography and not travel as defined in the help center. Voting to close too.

comment Is it possible for ancient undiscovered islands to exists on earth?
@travel101 you've actually altered the question now, which is frustrating, as it's making it clear that it may be off-topic. However, in this case I refer to you my first paragraph - it's possible, but unlikely. How could we possibly answer 'yes' - because if we know about them, they'd be discovered already. But we have mapped the entire world, so yes, there's a record of them. However unexplored is a different meaning to discovered - and there are certainly tiny islands that people have seen but not bothered to actually visit.
