One of our wishlist experiences is to see lava in its purest form.
This is a wishlist experience we have traveled long and far to witness.
We have traveled to some of the most volcanic areas of the earth including Hawaii, Iceland and Central America and have never seen any. Hawaii’s big island had been witnessing a continuous eruption for months, we arrived exactly when it finished. Central America is littered with wild volcanos… but not a glimmer… Typical! … More New Wanderlust Experience
There is nothing like experiencing the natural world first hand. Marveling at landscapes, the beauty and the splendor is one thing but getting a close up with it is something else.

Having previously visited Reykjavik, Copenhagen and Helsinki, and thoroughly enjoyed all of them – we had high hopes for Stockholm. I am pleased to say it didn’t disappoint.
