Obscure, isolated, spiritual, wild and remote are all words to describe the mysterious Easter Island. Formed by a series of extinct volcanoes and sitting curiously in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, on this former abandoned island. Comprised mainly of grassland and shrubbery, there exists proof of an ancient civilisation in the form of hundreds of stone statues, some over fourteen foot in height, that are thought to date back between 1250 and 1500AD. Intriguingly, there are no trees on the island and only few mammals; you may see horses, cattle and harmless wild dogs, but little else. You will, however, find a wonderfully calm land, totally removed from the jostle of modern day, making Easter Island the ideal escape destination.
