The world's most isolated place
The Polynesian Easter Island has little to do with the holiday besides the origins of the name we've come to call it today, but the location offers a fascinating history and attractions that are worth a visit all on their own.
Known as Rapa Nui to its earliest inhabitants, the tiny island is located more than 2,200 miles east of Chile in the Pacific Ocean and is known as the world’s most remote inhabited island.

Sailing around Cape Horn
Chile & Argentina
A sailing adventure for a non-sailor. Despite that I had never been on a sailing boat before, I jumped onboard this 60 feet long beast and spent two months in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Horn is commonly called A sailor's Mount Everest. Gulp.
