Easter Island! After 4 years of wanting to visit the island, I've finally made it and wow, was it well worth the effort! What a way to end my trip in South America!
Easter Island was definitely the highlight of the trip and one of the many place I enjoyed dearly. While on this remote island, I rented a quad bike and drove around the island for a few days, enjoying the clear sky while lying on my bike under the clearest Milky Way stars I've ever seen. As the stars went down and the sky turned purple, I sat there and watched the sunrise behind the Ahu Tongariki moai head statues. I was lucky enough to be able to be there during the best time of the year when the Rapanui people celebrated the great Tapati Festival and danced away to their heart pounding traditional music. I could not have ask for a better way to end my trip in South America!
If you have a chance to visit the island, do so! It's definitely well worth the money spent!
