    Mars on Earth. While planning my trip to Sicily, I was obviously looking forward to visit Mount Etna. I love islands, and I especially love volcanic islands. I have been to Tenerife before so it was exciting to see how Mount Etna looked like.

    The time seemed right to head north to the island of the vikings, geysirs and especially the Eyjafjallajökull! Said so, done so, we boarded the plane, rented a 4x4 and hit the roads...

    Robert Landsburg's Brave Final Shots

    In our world, there are few people who are most devoted to their profession, who would put their work above life. Despite the fact that people regularly attend management seminars and refresher training, they are often still negligent in their work, but there are exceptions. Such an exception was American photographer Robert Landsburg, who photographed the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.

    Mt. Eden Park, Auckland

    Mt. Eden Park in Auckland is made from an impressive former volcano crater and offers a great view over the whole area. It's perfectly safe to visit as it's already a dormant volcano - you can either enjoy a nice walk uphill or take a car if you're being lazy but once you get to the top, you'll quickly realize that all the effort is well worth it.

    Out and About in Iceland

    Iceland – the land of Vikings, hot springs, volcanoes and Hákarl (putrefied shark)…. where the beer flows plentifully and the coffee has kick…. what more could you ask for? The landscape is stunning with active steam vents lining the countryside, basalt as far as the eye can see and volcanoes popping up amidst the dramatic and rolling landscape. A “Disneyland” for a volcanologist like me!

    Nowhere on Earth is heaven and hell so closely intertwined as they are in Yellowstone National Park. It's an other-worldly foray into fire, steam, smoke and ice. The wildness of the park is unlike anywhere else in the United States...and did I mention, it's inside the caldera of a super-volcano?

    Mount Pinatubo Adventure Trek

    As we worked our way through the ashen gullies of Mount Pinatubo's shoulder, I admired the signs of rebirth underway: the steady stream of water that skipped over horsetails, tadpoles and pumice stones painted with sulfur and iron; the moss, thickets and tree ferns carpeting the ravines beneath distant avian cawing; and Aeta children keenly observing our ascent into the gaping cerulean mouth of Apo Namallari-- the almighty god of this sacred mountain, whose pyroclastic power the world witnessed during the eruption of June 1991, the largest in living memory.
