Photo of the Day (7.18.09)

If you’re traveling to Easter Island, then your visit is surely incomplete if you aren’t able to see the Moai statues with your own two eyes. These statues can be found along the coastal periphery of this special island, which is nestled conveniently between the nations of Tahiti and Chile. You can only get to the island through one of these two places too — or by boat. But what a special place and what a sight this land and these statues must be.

Did I mention the surfing here is off the chain too? Sounds like an amazingly remote paradise to me!

This photo comes to us from kjRoc. If you have some great travel shots you’d like to share, be sure to upload them to the Gadling pool on Flickr. We might just pick one as our Photo of the Day!
