A leisurely Sunday trek around the crater of Monte Nuovo with friends. A few rainy days still popped up around this time towards the end of March, but other times we ended up with perfect days for hikes like this! Monte Nuovo (New Mountain) is a cinder cone volcano within the Campi Flegrei caldera, near Naples. A series of damaging earthquakes and changes in land elevation preceded its only eruption, which lasted from September 29 to October 6, 1538, when it was formed. Considering the other volcanos in Italy, this one is one of the “younger” ones, hence the name “new volcano.”
Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
