Mt Etna in Sicily erupted again this week and if you’re keeping track, this is the 7th time this year and the 3rd time this month. One week from today I am leaving for Italy and plan to go to Mt Etna during my visit there.
Who knows when it will erupt again but I will just have to play it by ear. It would be really cool actually to see it erupting from a distance. You can be sure that I will be blogging about it.
Yes it is only a week away now and I am getting excited although I am still packing. I have been watching the weather reports trying to decide if I need clothes for warm weather or cool weather, and I guess I need both. I am trying to pack light since I remember how difficult it is to lug bags onto trains and up and down staircases.
Packing is always a challenge no matter how many times I go somewhere or for how long unless it is just a day or two. It seems I always have something to sew at the last minute too. I never can understand how people can pack for a long trip in an hour or less.
I am really excited about going back to Lake Como again and this time I will be staying in Bellagio.
Stay tuned as I will be posting from Italy. I don’t expect to be posting so frequently while I am on the cruise ship though because the days will be busy. Eventually though I will post something along with some photos for sure.
One of the other places that I am going and really interested in returning to is the Cinque Terre.
I will definitely take a lot of photos and report on the progress there. It will probably be a little sad though since the last time I was there it was before the mudslides and floods of last October, so I remember it as a beautiful place. Stay tuned.
