"Mongolia is kind of close, right?" Story about an attempt to ski everywhere in the world where there's snow. And in some places where there isn't. On and off-piste skiing on all continents, skiing into craters of live volcanoes, caving, climbing, photography, and travel.

Went to see the Vesuvius crater with Janne, quite interesting and of course the source of many sad fates in destroyed cities around. Overdue for eruption, too.
Easy but very hot climb, 200 or 350 meters vertical depending on whether one came by bus or your own car. At the top many touristy servings, including Limoncello. In Finland, the price and percentage would probably be reversed.
We also saw many small caves around, Finland-size so not relevant. And we also found a Korso sticker :-)
I did have my miniskis with me as well, but the only place to try them on the mountain would have been the walking path down, possibly steep enough to slide. But Janne announced that if I ski down on the path among the many people walking there, he doesn't want to be seen next to me :-) So I didn't ski :-)

When you are doing what you think is a hard climb, you are set back to reality by seeing small cars go up or down past you :-)
The forest at the parking lot was nice. Vesuvius behind the trees:
