Rapa Nui

View Nov 2012 Vacation on samandjet's travel map.

We departed on Nov 1 and finally arrived on Rapa Nui, Easter Island, on Nov 4th. We took LAN from Lima to Easter Island, which landed around 7am and after the outdoor immigration line… we were met by driver from Explora Rapa Nui and then our first trekking started right after quick breakfast and shower… MOAI!

We spent 3 nights and nearly 4 full days on Easter Island, and this was our first time travel with Explora…. I have to admit this is almost addictive. Those guides are super nice and the idea of trekking to see something on the island is indeed very different than taking a bus to the destination to see something. IMG_0014.jpg We learned so much more on the way… We stopped from time to time to learn about the history and culture, and Explora really plan the time well that we dont see a lot of other tourists when we were at the destination. Not to mention that they always prepare fresh juice and even cheese platter.

I have never been so outdoorsy in my life… all those trekking through trees, and up and down to get to somewhere… But I really enjoyed it…

Cheers to Pisco Sour, Pisco Pina, Pisco Raspberry, Pisco Passion Fruit!!! Next stop, back to Lima and more Pisco Sour

haha… not Prada trekking shoes available, so I bought a pair of Columbia instead… but I did borrow a pair of trekking pants from Alex.
