Our buddy at Nikita, Geiri, dropped us a mail to let us know that despite Mother Nature venting its innards through one of their Volcanoes, all is mostly well on their North Atlantic island. There's even plenty of snow kicking around should anyone fancy heading over and bagging what would surely be the mother of all cover shots...
"We here at Nikita Iceland have been getting a lot of emails and viral feedback from people all over the world asking us if we are alright. And the answer is quite simple: "Yes, we are alright and so is the rest of the island". The eruption and ash cloud is mainly affecting a rural area in the south.
Pictures often say more than many words or over-pesimistic news reporters. So check out the pictures on the link.
The satelite picture shows pretty well how the volcano is affecting Iceland. It's right there in the bottom (south) spewing ash towards Europe. And yes there is still plenty of snow even though it is officially the first day of summer here tomorrow. And yes all is well here in Iceland, don´t believe everything the global media spews at you :)
Hope our little volcano is not causing too many problems for you.
