Easter Island – By Bicycle

Easter Island

After I landed on Easter Island, I went immediately to my hostel, and then wanted to visit the island; on foot… But the scale on the map; plus the way from the airport, made me think I should change my stupid plans. 😉 So I rented a bicycle. It was much better choice then walking, however, still not a perfect idea, considering how many sites I wanted to visit. I didn’t think, that “small island” is actually quite hilly volcanic island… So at the end of that day I was very exhausted… I was somewhere, no idea where on Easter Island, walking with my bicycle because didn’t have energy to cycle uphill again and again… And suddenly one big pickup passed me and… stopped and offered to take me to the “city”. They didn’t speak English, I didn’t speak Spanish, but we understood each others and they “save my life”. 😉
It’s not the end of the story…
We’re driving, and we met another girl walking with her bicycle uphill! It was kind of relief for me, I’m not the only one! 😀
Unfortunately, “my pickup” didn’t have more space to take her as well;
hopefully, there was another one who saved her. 🙂
