The reason why I am writing again about the Etna is that on february 15th and 16th, the Etna performed a major spectacular eruption, therefore the ordinary volcanic daily activity which I assisted was nothing in comparison. What impressed me of this new eruption is that I actually walked right on that rim, which erupted with explosions and lava flows.
Travel Photo Challenge - Day 9 Guess where the picture was taken in the comments section
I've seen this travel photo challenge going on these past few days on wordpress and I found it interesting to check my old travel photos and pick some that mean something special to me. People are supposed to be challenged by other bloggers but no one challenged me so far, thus I decided to volunteer to this.
A couple of years ago I spent my Christmas break in Oman, a Country in the Arab Peninsula bordering Saudi Arabia, the UA and Yemen. I toured a lot the east and south east of the Country starting from the capital city, Muscat, passing by the former capital, Nizwa, down to the sand desert close to the village of Bidiyah, and I spent the night in the desert.
Lentils are a symbol to the Italians. Legend has it that if you eat lentils on New Year's Eve, at midnight, the next year will be happier, you will be lucky and you will get more money than the previous year.
Now that vaccines are available and gradually all of us will have the chance to get protected from the virus (and to protect all those around us), travel restrictions will be lifted, one by one, by Countries worldwide based on the volume of the vaccinated percetage of population, thus travelling will become safe and possible again.
I used to be on travel every Christmas break for the past 25 years of my life. In 2020, I will spend the whole season at home, thus I scheduled some good readings. While doing that, before buying new books, I re-explored my own home library to check if there still was some unread book and I bumped into 2 books I read a while ago and which helped me focusing on some issues that also impacted on my "travel destination" choice making process.
