A hot time in Pompeii, Italy

The highlight of this trip so far — other than interviewing the voice of SpongeBob, which I’ll do tomorrow — has been visiting Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius.

Oh, wow. This was totally worth it.


The ancient city of Pompeii, which was buried in a volcanic eruption in 79 A.D., is incredible. The ash preserved so much of this Roman city, we couldn’t explore even a fraction of it in an afternoon.

The famous plaster molds of the victims will haunt you for the rest of your life. I know my children will never feel the same way about a volcano after seeing the bodies.

We also hiked up to Vesuvius. It’s well worth seeing this volcano up close. And imagine: Before 79, it was 12,000 feet high. Now, it’s just 4,000 feet. That’s some eruption!
