Travel Memories: Mount Etna

Walking the snowy slopes of Mt Etna in glorious sunshine.

As part of my “get away from London at Christmas” travels, in 2005 I joined a Ramblers small group walking holiday in Sicily. It was a marvellous trip! We stayed at a small hotel in Francavilla and each day took a bus to our walk location. Mt Etna was visible from many locations, and the day of our walk on the slopes brought perfect conditions of clear skies and pleasant temperatures. You can tell by the clothing that it was cold up there, but not freezing. The peak of the mountain is visible with a plume of steam or smoke being blown left (better view in the top, cropped photo).

Travel Memories: a single photo from a trip — one that always makes me smile, or reflect, or want to go back.

  1. You went to some fab places when you lived in London. So easy to go to Europe. We definitely found it much more stressful to travel once we had moved away from the south east.
