Highlight of the Year

The ongoing year is far from finished, but I think I can safely claim to be looking back onto the highlight of 2014. I was very fortunate to visit the eruption at Holuhraun; a fissure eruption of Bárðarbunga volcano in Iceland.

The area has been closed by the Icelandic authorities, as this is the one of the most unpredictable volcanoes of the country. Nevertheless: nearly one month after the start of the eruption I finally managed to visit the volcano. To say that it had been a mindblowing experience would be an understatement...

This is only a first impression: blog and pictures are coming soon!
