"Jumping in Easter Island!" Easter Island by jumpingnorman

Easter Island Travel Guide: 633 reviews and 1,533 photos

HAHA, that's me finally jumping beside the 15 MOAI structures that were brought back up by Japanese conservationists, after these structures were brought down by a tsunami face down in the 1960's....

Somehow, even before I went to Easter Island, I already had this image of myself jumping like this beside the MOAIS....and yes, JUMP I DID, hahaha - several times...

This is one of those travels where I am very thankful for having read the suggestions of VTer Leyle also known as TheWanderingCamel, one of our truly deserving top VTers. She suggested my guide PATRICIO and the home where I stayed at on the island.

I had such a great time...can you tell from the pics? Hahahaha

Here is a video I made on the magical dogs I found on Easter Island:

      Great! We will also be going to Europe but not until October or so. Nothing booked yet. Definitely Frankfurt to see my boyfriend's family and then, maybe, Prague or Vienna.
