Inside the bath house which was the public spa.
The 2,000 year old stone streets are still intact!
A cast made from the bones of an actual person left in the position they died in.
That's Vesuvius in the background!
The view from uptop of Volcano when we climbed it.
It was really hard to get good pictures of the volcano because it's just massive, but here you can see the gases coming up from the inside!
At the top of Vesuvius!
A ring I bought that has lava ash as the stone!
I've always been really interested and intrigued by the tragedy that happened in 79 AD in Pompeii. I watched a documentary on it then this summer which only made me more excited to see everything in person and study it! I absolutely loved climbing the volcano and touring the town, like I thought I would. It was an awesome experience to walk these 2,000 year old streets but also very sobering to see the casts of the bodies of residents who once lived here. Very grateful I had the chance to see this great city in person-- one of my favorite parts of this whole trip so far and something I always hope to cherish the memory of! x
Off to Paris for five days-- I won't be taking my laptop with me, so if you'd like to keep up with my adventures there you can follow me on instagram with @passingwhimsies :)
With much love, Lauren,
