Vesuvio

I have been obsessed with Vesuvius ever since I was 5. Riding a horse up it for my 19th birthday was splendiferous.

Pompeii with Mt. Vesuvius (the volcano) in the background. Went here with my host family when I was a foreign exchange student living in Germany. This place is incredible. You can see the people "frozen in time" by the volcanic ash that engulfed the city when Mt. Vesuvius erupted and covered Pompeii, destroying the city and preserving its remains for the future.
