Easter Island Travel Guide | Part Two


My second installment on Easter Islands is finally here. Better late than never, right?! 

When I got back from this trip at the end of March, I had so many deadlines with companies and projects I was working on, that my travel guide fell a bit to the wayside, but it's finally here! That's all that matters, right? And just in time, because we're jetting off to Spain later this week for a much needed vacation. I know, I know, I just got back from a vacay, right. To say the last few months have been a whirlwind, would be pretty accurate. From work going insanely well, but keeping me a little bit too busy, to house hunting (more to come on that), events and just everyday life, it's been tough to catch my breath. Not that I'm complaining though. Frank Lloyd Wright once said, "I know the price of success: hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen." 

I was talking to my mom the other day, and we were saying how we still can't believe we were in Easter Island, and wish we could be transported back there right now. This magical island and it's people are truly a blessing from above. I mean it when I say it, it's the most wonderful place. Sounds cheesy, but being out in the middle of no where really allowed me to connect with myself, to enjoy nature, and to take a step back in time. 

The best part was the slower pace of life, and even though we did tours and hiked all day, everyday (hence, my casual and practical attire), they were so laid back, yet the passion in the islanders shined through even in just their smiles. More than travel tips or info, I really wanted to share my photos with you, to give you a glimpse into what it felt like to be in paradise! 


Aerial views right before we landed in Easter Island. Everyone's noses were glued to their windows and you literally could hear a pin drop off the plane because, it took your breath away.  




All photos above taken in the quarry where the Moai statues were created.

 Chilean pisco sour & the signature at Hotel Hangaroa, the Rapa Nui Mojito (the blue color made it even more delicious) 
My lunch every single day while we were there (six full days). Fresh, curried veggies and who can resist a side of fries. Delicious. 
The most delicious creme bruelee 



Thousands of horses roam the island

We took this photo seconds before this horse charged at us! Looking back now, it's funny, but was really scary at the time. 

 Oh hey, don't mind my raincoat and wonderful outfit...look closely and you'll see the rainbow behind me. It's right behind all the Moai statues. This is my favorite picture of the trip.

  24. I needed to send you one very little remark just to thank you so much once again about the superb information you have contributed above. It is remarkably generous with people like you to present freely exactly what a few people could possibly have made available as an ebook in making some bucks for their own end, notably considering that you might have tried it in case you desired. The pointers as well worked to provide a easy way to know that most people have the same zeal just as my personal own to see whole lot more with regards to this problem. I’m certain there are a lot more fun moments in the future for many who looked at your blog. madrid tourism

  25. I not to mention my buddies ended up viewing the best points from the website while immediately developed a horrible feeling I had not expressed respect to the site owner for those secrets. Those young boys had been for that reason excited to see all of them and have now absolutely been taking pleasure in those things. Many thanks for simply being considerably thoughtful and then for making a decision on some terrific topics most people are really needing to learn about. My very own honest regret for not expressing appreciation to you sooner. tips travel

  27. Be careful of what they're offering you; there are a lot of scam artists out there. For women, if a man buys you a drink you need to be aware of the fact that he may try to drug you or if he buys you an excessive amount of drinks that he may be trying to get you drunk and take advantage of you.  https://eveningdesertsafari.com
