Sicilian Volcanoes

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I actually had several inspirational moments. When we gathered near the church in Stromboli before our climb began, I realized that I was about to embark on an amazing trek. Being on the summit of Stromboli under the beautiful stars, sitting on the edge of the crater and watching the volcanic eruption bursts was so surreal. I was so excited to be on that part of the earth! Climbing on the summit of Mt. Etna and seeing the lunar landscape was also extremely inspirational and very unique. Just realized another moment--being on the boat on the coast of Salina and seeing the incredibly landscape and imagining what Odysseus saw.

What did you think of your group leader?

Federica Fassari is an amazing guide and a wonderful caring very enthusiastic person who represents Exodus extremely well. Of my three Exodus trips, Federica was my favorite guide. She was always there for us and stayed with us even on her day off. She was also extremely knowledgeable and a tremendous amount of fun. All of Federica's restaurant suggestions were outstanding.
