Next week Carmen and I are heading to Calabria, a region in southern Italy, for a one week-long holiday. We’ll be staying at the Garden Resort Calabria hotel which has a very nice big pool and a long sandy/grit beach.
One of the things I would like to do is visit Stromboli, a small island that has an active volcano. The remarkable thing about Stromboli is that this volcano has been in nearly continuous eruption for more than 2000 years. Several small gas explosions that emit ash, incandescent lava fragments and lithic blocks occur each hour!
