“Mystery. As traveler’s, we’re suckers for it.” There could not be a truer statement! I personally have always been fascinated by the sheer remoteness and difficulty of accessing many places in our world, including Easter Island (mentioned in the link/slideshow above), the Galapagos and Cuba.
Cuba?? Yes. I have always had a strong desire to go to Cuba… It’s basically preserved in the 1950s, and is full of color, people and culture. It would be neat to explore that and learn.
Unfortunately, I forgot that one of the moai from Easter Island was at the Louvre when I visited Paris this summer. Hopefully, I’ll get to see the real thing as it appears in its natural habitat someday!
