Kawah Ijen volcano has some spectacular blue lava during the night time, but shows glowing red during the day. It is the sulphur that causes the change in color. Photo by Olivier Grunewald Location: Banyuwangi Regency, Java, Indonesia Coordinates: 8.058°S 114.242°E
With only 300,000 people, Iceland has the atmosphere of a small town everywhere you go. I could rave all day about Iceland—it’s natural wonders are truly something to behold—from massive glaciers and bubbling lava to picturesque fjords and waterfalls. Iceland is one of the safer destinations I have traveled solo, and that is why I highly recommend it to solo female travelers, and especially travelers taking their first solo trip!
