Do you share the fascination for volcanoes? In this case, Mount Etna on Italy's Sicily island for sure is worth a trip. What I really enjoyed is how diverse this mountain is. The appearance changes constantly, depending on which side and altitude you are. Many areas are covered with lava and ash from previous eruptions, with no or very little vegetation. Then, we had a surprising sight around 2.000m above sea level: a forest of birches. Apparently they enjoy the fertile soil on top of an old lava field of Mount Etna. I took this family picture with a close-up on their trunks with the typical white bark.
