Whilst researching the new zine which is going to be about volcanoes and travel (which I'm pretty excited about) I found some great websites. I think the variety in volcano 'holidays' shows not only the range of volcanoes and landscapes that they occupy but also the range of emotions they evoke in different people; a holiday advertising the geothermal properties of volcanoes is likely to be different from one emphasising the adventures. I think that my ideal volcano holiday would be to go round the world painting all different kinds of volcanoes, I could then also study the surrounding flora and compare the two. But I think trekking over volcanoes would be pretty fun I'm torn between Iceland, Japan and Ecuador. One of my favourite activities is to look at cruise holidays in the paper and I don't want to go on a cruise as I think it'd be quite gross this website is worse as I actually really want to go all the holidays. They also have eclipse departures, to go round the world watching eclipses and other lunar events would be my other ideal life (maybe I could do both). So at the moment I'm doing lots of looking at volcano holidays and thinking about how I need a change, which is why I'm so excited about the prospect of the volcano travel zine (see I made a circular reference which may seem this post has some sort of point) as always let me know if you have anything to contribute.
I'm not sure I want to do this though.
Finally here is some more volcano tourism 1 and 2.
Volcano Club is all about volcanoes, this blog accompanies the zine which is produced on occassion. The earliest complete surviving issue is from 1995, but archives reveal the origins of this great publication are even earlier. We are always looking for ideas because we're lazy and uninspired so if you have anything then please get in touch.
