3 Days on

Easter Island has a fascinating history and
when I was offered an opportunity to visit, I
eagerly accepted.

Standing
beneath the
Moai’s, I
couldn’t help
but be
transported
back in time.

Ahu Tongariki is an
impressive sight, containing
15 moai, all in a row.

Nearly half of the mo’ai are still at
Rano Raraku, the main quarry where
they were made.

The locals are a proud
people with a vibrant
history, referring to the
island in their native
tongue, “Rapu Nui.”

I was perplexed how these massive pieces of
stone were transported across the island.

My time on Easter Island was brief, but it’s an
experience I will never forget.
