I am an adult, held man and therefore I can fall all day in an amusement park. I have a strange attitude towards roller-coaster parks: on the one hand, a clear lack of attention has remained from childhood. Those. Of course, I rode rides, but I didn’t have a classic park that would have huge slides and for the whole day without stopping. On the other hand, I am afraid of heights and I always started to get nauseous when I simply leafed through Six Flags or other similar parks. Well, now it’s time to realize children’s dreams and fight phobias.
Actually, I was not going to any parks. But it so happened that the beloved company decided to hold another corporate event in the amusement park, namely Six Flags Over Georgia. I had to leave the corporate party with my head held up proudly without a ride on any hill – it was on this day that I needed to finish a lot of work.

The idea of a holiday on Lake Baikal is full of stereotypes, the most common of which is that a real active holiday on Lake Baikal can only be in the summer.

This is the best place in the area where you can rent a car to go to conquer the volcano. The Rifugio Sapienza platform at an altitude of 1900 meters can be reached by car, then everyone changes to the funicular, which goes up to 2500 meters. You can drive another 500 meters up on a special bus, and only further on foot. The main thing to do with this is to be prepared for a change in temperature. Upstairs it’s cold and windy enough, so even if the day is very hot, you need to bring a jacket and closed shoes with you.
The landscapes above are simply Martian. Fantastic films can be made here: the crater smokes, there is no vegetation, bizarre-shaped stones are scattered everywhere, the wind carries black volcanic sand. Continue reading
