Easter Island was a huge bucket list item for us. Traveling to one of the earth’s most remote islands and witnessing firsthand the famous monumental statues (called moai), created by the early Rapa Nui people.
And while there are many posts to come documenting our amazing week spent on the island, here are some “postcards” from our collection of photos in the meantime.
Easter Island sunsets were stunning.
What did we tell you about those sunsets?!
