Photo Friday #16: Underneath Eyjafjallajokull

Now that we’ve started our round-the-world trip, every Friday we will feature one of our favorite photographs from the previous week of adventures on Don’t Ever Look Back.


Þorvaldseyri is a milk and cattle farm at the base of Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Eruptions at Eyjafjallajokull in April 2010 and the subsequent volcanic ash led to six days of air travel disruption, however it also caused widespread flooding which left Þorvaldseyri covered in black ash and water.

The owners cleaned up the farm and it’s quite a different setting now – very beautiful and peaceful as you can see from the photo! The nearby visitor centre opened in April this year and you can watch a short film about the eruptions and life on the farm through those times.
