Around the World in ??? Days

Postby Jeffref » Thu Oct 03, 2019 2:24 pm

Since I cannot afford a real trip I will attempt it virtually

On to South America via

Tonga

Image

Image

Image

Rarotonga

Image

Image

Has anyone ever told you that you have gone "too far"?
How about to Fa'aa?

Image

Image

A quick tour of Moorea

Image

Image

Image

A bit cloudy around the hills so the coast will have to do

On to Totegegie

Image

And Isla de Pascua better known as Easter Island - extra brownie points as most remote airport

Image

And the final pit stop before Santiago

Isla San Felix

Image

Image

And the mighty Andes come into view

Thanks for the "flight following", but I am really glad it is nearly over. I'm just downloading the last scenery at the moment.
