Those of you fascinated by volcanoes will probably remember that the recently deceased Holuhraun volcano in Iceland was originally thought to be the start of something much bigger and scarier in Bardarbunga volcano. That scenario is very much alive.

Increased underground activity in and around Bardarbunga volcano started almost immediately after the Holuhraun volcano went quiet. Local scientist are alarmed yet again there is much more to come and in all likelihood from Bardarbunga itself next time.

These news might excite you if your dream is to visit Iceland and see a real volcano with your own two eyes. But perhaps this will make you reconsider that dream of yours.
