Perhaps a first, hopefully not our last.... Wonderful stay inside a caldera in our Adria Matrix van... surely that's a first for both Adria and ourselves...?
Naples was not bathed in sunshine today, like yesterday, but despite that we sauntered the 25yds across to the heart of the caldera after an hr long photography lesson.. Perhaps a favourite lesson of the trip so far, as you could visibly see them improving across the hour... and it helps when you have photographic evidence to prove it :)
So after watching various Youtube clips of how and why volcanoes form, it was off to experience it at first hand... the sulphurous fumes, the pumice stones around our feet and the realisation that mother nature is so much more powerful than us!!!
With steam rising from all 4 corners that surrounded a bubbling hot pool of churning mud.... it was atmospheric to say the least.... but it was the sheer heat from the pores in the rocks that really made us consider the magnitude of the place....
With many thoughts to commit to paper, we headed back armed with facts from the plentiful information boards and a chance to reinforce the learning from today....
Naples awaits tomorrow before we hopefully experience the splendour of the Amalfi coastline over the next few days....
