Happy Gnu Year to y'all... and thanks to Justin for his dedication to and perseverepance with this forum site.

Also a query for Mike. Terme usually denotes a hot spring (natural environment - i.e. free - or commercial enterprise)? There is one on the north side of bay of Naples (although it doesn't nclude Terme in its name, while many do...) viz:

Stufe di Nerone, a thermal park boasting terraces covered in flowers and a breathtaking view over the Gulf of Pozzuoli. In addition to natural saunas dug out in its tufa grottoes, other on-site amenities include a bath filled with boiling water and one filled with tepid water.

What happened to all the college football bowl games? It used to be you could park yourself in front of the TV and see nothing but football all day long.

Hi Trvir, to answer your query, Terme translates to Spa.

Around (and in) Contursi Terme village are many springs and coupled with this the region is volcanic. Springs are different, e.g. one is freezing and effervescent, another so hot, if you fell in you would be boiled and ready to eat in a few minutes. :-)

Regularly we fill up for *FREE* many bottles from various springs to use as drinking water. Unlike the UK where despite having suitable mains water, an expensive (and probalbly unnecessary) Mineral Water industry has spawned. One spring used here has so much Sulphur I refuse to drink it, advising 'er indoors it is like a liquid fart. :-)

Each spring is analysed asto whether it is fit to drink and whether it has any medicinal benefits. If there are any (rare) quakes, following such, notices appear advising not to drink until again analysed, as the ground movement might have caused different minerals to be released into the water.

Lower down in the River (Sele) valley proper Spa's are quite an industry, with swimming pools and mud baths etc. fed by a springs with particular qualities. Locals (me included) can use for free. Although before using I am waiting for one that is truly 'The Fountain of Life'. :-)

Many years back when I first visited here I tried some pools, but found it caused itching in embarrassing places.

To view some local Geysers, Google images for:-
