Peru & Easter Island 2010

Since as long as I can remember I have always wanted to visit both Peru and Easter Island and have only now finally decided to go.

I fly into Lima Peru and then spend the next week seeing as many of the sites as possible in a short period of time, highlights include; the Nazca Lines, Lake Titicaca and of course Machu Picchu.

I then fly down to Santiago in Chile and then on to Easter Island, the small isolated island in the middle of the Pacific home of the giant Moai statues.
