My dream holiday on an Island so far away I’ve wanted to go there for many a day ‘Kon-Tiki’ film by Thor Heyerdahl caught my eye Now Easter Island is a destination I dearly want to try A journey, which would take me over land and sea But to reach my destination would be a dream for me Easter Island is located in the Pacific Ocean I’d need to fly to Santiago de Chile then to Hanga Roa The Rapa Nui tribe used to inhabit there No trees are on the Island – isn’t that rare! At one stage the Island suffered deforestation This could explain the total devastation The Island is famed for its archaeological sites Its monumental statues cause many delights ‘Moai’ are the famous statues with oversized heads They rest on rock altars ‘Ahu’ their own comfy beds These incredible stone carvings are heavy and some are very tall The largest at 86 tonnes would have been a nightmare to haul To view all the statues I would stay for a day or two I do hope one day my wish will finally come true Contest Take a Vacation Sponsor Lin Lane 02~03~16

I'd love to visit Easter Island. I've always been fascinated by those monumental statues. Scientists still have no clear explanation how they got them to stand upright? Good luck in the contest. / M

Its fascinating reading more about the archaeological digs that have been undertaken. I thought they were just 'heads' but to see the bodies underground really is fascinating ... would love to go and visit one day:-) hugs Jan xx

The sad thing is the peoples history... They were starving after the deforestation and a population explosion. They started attacking their own people to survive... Such an isolated island had such a sad ending... But it would still be a great trip to see the stones.
