No Moai – Just Views

When you visit Easter Island, the first thing that comes to mind is the Moai. Moai, Moai everywhere. And correct – they are. I saw them at sunrise, I saw them at sunset. I explored the creation grounds and I wandered among toppled Moai. I felt energy expelling from some of the Moai and sat at a magnetic rock. I had done almost everything I could do with the Moai.

Travel History: 2011

Travel History: 2011

2011 is divided. I spent the first 4 months completing my undergraduate degree in Ottawa, Canada. I only made it out of the city during my Reading Week and headed to Mount Tremblant, Quebec to snowboard. In February I accepted a job in Buenos Aires, Argentina and moved there in May. I stayed in my position until December 2011 and then began traveling South America for the last leg of 2011 and into 2012. So Far – I’ve had an incredible year. Spending 8 months in 2011 in South America learning Spanish, meeting so many incredible people both working and traveling, and getting a new understanding of myself and knowledge that I want to return to school for my Masters degree.
