Between two continents

600_9759_wDid I mention, Iceland is a land of fire? Sure, I did. Many volcanos can be found here, because of its location right on the crack of the north-american earth plate and the european earth-plate. The gap between these two plates become wider each year, thus the distance between Europe and North-America increases. Hey, North-America flees Europe 🙂

Most of the gap is below the atlantic ocean. But, here, in Iceland, you have the option to have your feet on both continents at the same time 🙂

In the image above, I’m standing on a small bridge right above the crack. It’s a quite funny feeling.

In the gallery below, you can find a map and an info board locate beside the bridge as well.

Take care!
