    Been away on a short vacation to Eolian islands and Sicily!

    Stromboli was in an active phase, so I didn't manage to climb it, but since it was so active, you could easily see the lava streams from the side. Definitely a spectacular hike and a spectacular island!

    You can see 3 other islands (from left: Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi) in the background

    I can't even imagine seeing a sight like that in person. Spectacular.
