It’s about time I get to use this challenge for a solid entry.
My record of adventurous travels in Italy came late. It was actually only during my last few days there that I pushed for the travel adventures that I had been putting on hold. I guess it was because most of the time I travel in groups that includes families with children that I had to either had to find others or go by myself.
This is Napoli as seen from the top of Mt. Vesuvius. It was breath-taking. What I meant is that my weak lungs were gasping for breath climbing that mountain. But the hardship I had to endure was nothing compared to my adoration to Mt. Vesuvius. I had to had to set foot on that mountain before I leave Italy. There just not a way I would miss the seeing the heart of Vesuvius. Having accomplished it was satisfying, and the views from and on top was indeed breathtaking, this time I meant in its literal sense.
In the first picture, you can actually see the island of Capri. We were already tired from walking and climbing stairs from the dock to the top. Still, we continued more for an even more challenging hike down a cliff to a secluded spot.
I also went for a mini-trip to see The Aqueduct of Vanvitelli. It maybe a mini-trip or less popular but I longed to get up there. Luckily, I share the same desire with a co-worker. He actually was the one who invited me to go. What so great about it nothing grand but being in such great heights (as commented, no handrails!).
After all my travels, I can’t say I am the most experienced when it comes to hiking, trekking or mountain climbing. I really wish to expand more of these kinds of traveling, perhaps even the harder or daring challenges like rafting, bungee jumping and the likes, backpacking, etc.
I have to say, when you have to endure difficult challenges, go through tasks and problems along the way, or search for the hard-to-reach spots, oftentimes you find the best and extra more satisfying results.
The featured image is from Herculaneum which I call the lesser-known Pompeii. It’s a place of ruins destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
Speaking of adventure and travel, my first featured blog is Lesley Carter’s Bucket List Publications. It’s a highly realiable blog as it features so many traveling sites and adventure activities you can put to your own bucket list. You can totally count on this blog. Thing is, she’s plain globe-trotter and a blogger. Nothing more than fancy than what you read in magazines. You can definitely gain from her stories, suggestions and recommendations.
Recently, she made a list of her Top 10 Favorite Cities. My favorite post from her, #4 Djanet, Algeria. I’m thumbing up for her top one so make sure you check out the rest of cities in her countdown.
So head out there and go see the world!
