Reykjavik is located on Reykjanes peninsula which is on the Atlantic ridge and therefore constantly being teared apart. Luckily we have not had volcanic eruptions here for about 800 years but last Friday night that changed. It was obvious right away that this is what we call a tourist-friendly eruption. Me and a couple of friends cycled and hiked through rugged trails and non-trails to get there yesterday morning (Saturday). In short we spent most of the day there getting the forces of nature directly through all the senses. But pictures say more than I can say.
