With those January Blues in full swing and Blue Monday just around the corner – you know, the most depressing day of the year – we thought we’d show you this Aussie artist’s really miserable Google Maps screenshots of the saddest places on Earth. Don’t worry, they are all terribly funny.

Australian artist Damien Rudd has been blitzing his bleak Instagram account with a load of the most melancholy rivers, lakes and road names across the entire planet. How come? Well, we don’t really know, but the results are hilarious. With 65K followers and counting, he screenshots them all and posts them to, in his own words, inspire people to find “somewhere to go, when you’re feeling low.” Lovely.

From ‘Despair Island’ to ‘Camp Suicide Road’ and ‘Crying Child Island,’ take a look at some of the delightfully miserable places for yourself. Who knows, you could be inspired to book your next vacation.
