Every once in a while Mother Nature reminds us that we still don’t understand and fully control our environment. A Volcano (Bardarbunga) in Iceland is erupting with lava fountains up to 50 meters in the air and seismic activity.
It is yet unclear how and if this eruption will affect travel in Northern Europe. Just 4 years ago in 2010 another Volcano (Eyjafjallajoekull) erupted in Iceland causing chaos in European aviation with cancellation of many flights when a big cloud of dust covered European airspace for several days.
History is filled with volcano eruptions, among the famous ones is the Mount Vesuvius eruption in 79AD when the Roman city of Pompeii was destroyed by lava rivers and also the Minoan Eruption that created the Island of Santorini.
