It’s almost impossible for you to not learn about the history of Mount Vesuvius and Pompeiiwhen you were at least in middle school. Such a huge history in the world, so huge that the story had been passed down by people for over 2,000 years, including the archaeological discoveries by experts.
The ancient city of Pompeii — famously ruined in A.D. 79 when mighty Mount Vesuvius blew its top — is one of Italy’s most popular tourist attractions. Checking out Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii had been high on my list since I learned about it back in high school, if I remember correctly. Not only that, visiting the attractions with my 72-year-old grandpa who had a lifetime dream of visiting Italy was also a bonus for me.
Besides, History was my first major in college because I wanted to because a history teacher, but life was surely fruitful for me, so I ended up changing my major few times before I fell in love with New Media Marketing. Hence this travel blog.
Anyways, the point here is that I love history, and the thought of uncovering temples and tombs in jungles like Indiana Jones excites me. Therefore, I wouldn’t miss out on this for the world when I was in Naples.
There were four of us: Grandpa, two Deaf Italian locals (friends of mine as well), and myself.
