Spring 2009 I planned a 4-day trip to Sicily with a good friend. The target of the trip has been the visit of Stromboli volcano plus a 2-day trekking at snow covered Etna volcano.
But the weather threw a spanner in our plans. We still were lucky the first day at Stromboli volcano with good weather and strong eruptions.
The next day we had to postpone the planned Etna trek due to a temperature of minus 20 degree Celsius at the volcano. So we changed plans and spent the day at Vulcano volcano.
The day after we couldn’t leave the Stromboli island because of a rough sea, the ferry was not able to land.
The fourth day we finally rushed in direction of Etna volcano but were stopped by a engine breakdown. In the end we only could stay about one hour at the Etna area before we had to hurry to the airport.
