Ascent Trip ReportTook the hydrofoil from Milazzo to Lipari and stayed the night there. Had a great swim in the bay there until jellyfish took over. Received a nice sting from tenticles that wrapped around my arm and torso--somewhat painful. Next day on to Stromboli and began the hike. Super hot day. Climbed alongside the river of fire (lava). A few other hikers, but no one else stayed overnight. Sat on a cliff where we could feel the heat from the caldera and watched it erupt til late. Early next morning it erupted so loudly that it poofed our bags! We packed up early and got down. The train back to Milan seemed longer than when coming down. The plane ride home ended a 9 week backpacking trip that started in Scotland.
