Vulcano island: storm in October 2007
An unual wave of bad staormy weather hit Sicily early in mid to end October 2007,- when our tour Etna to Stromboli
took place. We experienced several violent rain storms, were stuck on Vulcano Island for two days, had snow on Etna, got wet and dry again, saw water spouts and impressive colors.
This page is dedicated to my wonderful group, who took everything with a great deal of humour: Kevin, Keith, Chris, Joe, Brian, Rob, Dave and Ray.
