Volcanic eruption Stromboli

Recommended Posts

Once took a ferry from Naples that dropped me off on the tiny pier of Ginostra. Spent 3 nights at a B&B there, with nothing else to do but read the first two Inspector Montalbano books translated to English, count donkeys, and hike up to see Stromboli faithfully spew a small geyser-like column every 20 mins or so like clockwork.

 

Amazing to see a full-blown eruption. Thanks for posting this!

Would Vesuvius be next??

Circled it on Quest and on Pursuit.  At night.  Never put on much of a show though.  This one is over the top.  Saw one hiker was killed, hope everyone else is OK.

There is no truth in the rumour that the Hawaiian authorities are putting into place Emergency plans for January 2020 🙂

But they have put Mauna Loa back on “active” status...

That is sad indeed.

 

Camilleri’s work is another example of “Things I learned on CruiseCritic”.

 

Thanks again to Lottie A for facilitating the introduction.
