This very first post on Europeish is about a mountain. A relatively small, Icelandic mountain, that managed to keep almost the entire world in a fierce headlock for several weeks in April and May of this year. Yes, we’re talking about Eyjafjallajökull, the world famous Icelandic volcano.

The eruption, the volcanic ash, and the huge ash clouds were annoying to lots of travelers, but equally beautiful to many others, which can be seen in The Big Picture or at BT.dk. Europeish saved and collected a few great photos for this very first post as well.

Volcano eruption video and footage

The Icelandic website Mila.is features live webcam footage of Mount Eyjafjallajökull. You can take a look at the volcano from two different sides, from Hvolsvelli and from Valahnúk.

The websites of the BBC and the Telegraph both also contain videos of the erupting volcano and the huge ash clouds.

A TV crew from Iceland captured this amazing footage of the volcano:

That’s enough for looking in the past; as of now, we’ll only be looking forward. Looking forward to creating great, inspiring, amazing, beautiful and simply interesting articles about Europe and the European culture.
