Next Stop, Easter Island

I’m headed out on my next adventure early Monday morning. This is the continuation of the OneWorld Round-the-World trip that I began in Japan last month.

I use Round-the-World tickets to travel to far away places that are otherwise difficult to get to. On this trip, my first stop is…

This is Rapa Nui, also known as Isle de Pascua, also known as Easter Island. After a lot of flying (it’s not the easiest place to get to), I’ll finally arrive there on Tuesday afternoon.

Easter Island is not really a country—it technically “belongs” to Chile on the South American mainland, and I’ll travel through Santiago to get there. But it’s such a distant, mythological place that I knew I had to find a way to go there ever since watching a documentary on a flight a couple years ago. I’m really looking forward to it!

After Easter Island, the trip continues. I’ll fly from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Amman, Jordan for a few days in the Mid-East, then over to Tunisia before coming back home.

As usual, my essays on Life, Work, and Travel will continue to be posted three times a week, and I hope to provide at least two detailed trip reports along the way. If you’re interested, you can follow more real-time updates over at Twitter.

Thanks for reading! See you on the island… let’s say next to the fourth statue on the left?
