We sailed to the Eolian Islands last night. Well, acutally yesterday during the day and last night, 110 nautic miles from Acciaroli. And we timed it that way so that we could pass by Stromboli at night. Stromboli is a constantly active volcano which means that hot lava erupts from its top every few minutes. We were able to see it from 30 nautic miles away at sea. A spectacular sight. Very much reminded me of descriptions of Mount Doom in the Lord of the Rings. Definitely one of the highlights of our turn so far.
