... the volcanic mountains in the area. It's a gorgeous landscape that has to be seen to truly understand what you are looking at. The black sand is of course fine volcanic ash, and the lake is a brilliant blue; but even on the warmest of days you probably wouldn't be busting out the lawn chair and towel at this beach.

Next up was the Sultan Hot Springs. If you've never smelled sulfur before you'll know it smells like rotten eggs and it's in ...

We gave up Faxi as a bad job as the road was horrendous - when we say gravel, we literally mean it is just gravel and nothing else; incredibly ...

Intercontinental Snorkeling

... Everyone is nervously excited, thankful that it's not raining or snowing despite the grey skies.


Suiting up is laborious. After stripping down to our underlayers (tights, tshirts and socks), we start with the thermal undersuit. We're all super pleased with our cozy onesies (mental note for next year's xmas list). Putting on the neoprene shell is much more awkward - hips were clearly not worked ...
