My wife, Lesley, had dreamed of going to Easter Island ever since she was in elementary school. The Moai and the culture that built these mysterious statues had always intrigued her. We were finally able to make her dream a reality when we spent two days visiting Easter Island in January ... and it did not disappoint! As we visited the sites throughout the island, we began to discover the cultural complexities of the ancestors that built and moved these giant statues. Each site was interesting in its own unique way and told the story of a civilization that simply ran out of resources on the island and moved on. We highly recommend a visit to Easter Island. For us, it was an experience that we'll never forget.
