Our trek up the volcano. Saz says: I don't wanna. Its too steep. Walking sucks. Waaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! Adam calls Saz a soft . Saz (hulk-style) goes super agro crazy woman and powers up to the summit. Adam knows how to get it done.

At this point Sarah needs to interject: unfortunately Adam knows me too well. What he neglected to mention was that I then powered up the volcano, leaving Adam in my dust with the rest of the old ladies crawling up the slope...

At the end of the day this trek is all about saying you've done it and not much else. The volcano may be 'live' but there is no bubbling lava or the like, only dirt. All different kinds of dirt. Oh and rocks, lots of rocks. The view over Naples and the bay is reasonable, but the area is just as likely to be blurred by haze/smog.
