    In 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius erupted and spewed volcanic ash and debris over 3 towns below it, Pompeii being one. It remained covered until the 1700's when excavations began to literally unearth and restore what was once a city of 10,000 people, a town of considerable size in those days. We spent the morning on a guided tour of this unbelievable site, leaving there in awe of the recovery effort but also much more educated about the sophistication of ...

    ... the Ercolano Scavi train station.

    For anyone unfamiliar with the history:

    Along with its more famous sister city, Pompeii, Herculaneum was almost blotted out of the history books by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE.

In the early morning hours of ...

    ... granny trail, with a gale force wind behind me, nicely pushing me to the top—although I dread what it’s going to be like walking down again!

    And there it is… in all its spendour: the massive crater of Mount Vesuvius, with little clouds of steam seeping from the sides, and the very distinct volcano smell, like rotten eggs. Yes, Vesuvius is very much alive.

    It suddenly strikes me that this is the very first ...
