Corsica, the mysterious island in the Mediterranean. I had heard of the GR20 hiking trail, one of the toughest in Europe, but little else did I know of this island.

Visiting the country with the greatest number and density of active volcanoes
In 2011 me and a friend traveled to Indonesia for the first time. When you love volcanoes, you just have to visit this country with over 147 active volcanoes. We did so.
