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

Today we got the chance to go to the local pottery shop 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 out hike on Mt Etna. We hiked 4 hours, we reached 2900 meters. This is not all the way at the top because Mt Etna was looking active, so for safety reasons that was as high as we could go. Being on top of that volcano was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced. We got so high up we were in the snow, where we had a snowball fight. How many people can say they had a snowball fight on an active volcano in Italy?!? Being up that high were 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 am very glad to be standing at the top of that volcano and feel this. For a very hard climb, being sunburnt and sore the next day it was worth it in the end to see that view from the very top.
