I conquered Mt. Etna! ( Day 9 & 10)

Today we got the chance to go to the local pottery shops and try our hand out at painting pottery. Later that day we took our bike ride around Mt Etna. On day 10 we got up bright and early to start our hiking on Mt Etna. We hiked for 4 hours, and reached 2900 meters. Being at the top of that volcano was the most amazing thing that I have ever experienced. We got so high up we were in the snow, where we had a snow ball fight! How many people can say they had a snowball fight on an active volcano in Italy?! Being up that high, where you can see everything, opens up a new perspective on your life, the world and your heart. I experienced this and became very emotional, but I was very glad to be standing at the top of that volcano and feel this. It was an amazing sight and feeling!
