Visiting volcanoes all over Europe

Visiting volcanoes all over Europe Visiting volcanoes all over Europe

Réka Felleg, a Hungarian PhD candidate at the Accounting and Information Management Department (SBE) who has seen 14 per cent of the world

 

Réka Felleg’s love of travel began when she visited her family in Los Angeles as a teenager. “I lived with them for seven months and went to high school there.” In her free time, they travelled around California. “We went to San Francisco and the Grand Canyon. That was the best; I was thinking of becoming a geologist at the time, so seeing that was really amazing.”

Also very memorable was the trip they took to Hawaii. “It’s very touristy, but still interesting. We snorkelled along the coast and visited the Pearl Harbor museum and the capital.” But the real attraction for Felleg lay in the volcanic origins of one of the Hawaiian islands: Kauai. “There we saw one of the largest active volcanoes in the world: the Kilauea. It was the best thing ever.” She has since visited a many volcanoes. “Especially in Italy. You can’t always get close, but at Vesuvius, for instance, you can look into the crater.”

Felleg has travelled through much of Europe, both for pleasure and for work. “I had the most fun in Scotland. The United Kingdom is very organised, with all these neat hedges, but Scotland is very rough, very natural. We rented a car and travelled to Edinburgh, which is such an interesting city with its palace, castle and all those museums.”

The best people, according to Felleg, live in Ireland. “They’re friendly and funny. The country is very green and has surprising nature. In the south there are palm trees. I loved the Giant’s Causeway, where you can see the remains of lava. It looks like spears or the steps of giants – that’s how it got the name.” Another favourite of hers were the cliffs of Moher. “It was misty when I was there. You could hear the waves below hitting the rocks, but you couldn’t see them. I wonder if you can visit them by boat. Seeing them from that angle would be perfect.”
