view of the ash from sign in front of the farm

Eyjafjallajökull ....You may not remember the name, but if you wanted to fly anywhere in Europe back in April of 2010, you knew about the volcano in Iceland. The joke going around stated that Iceland wanted the remaining ashes of its economy spread across Europe. As the ash blew across the continent, flights were cancelled all over Europe leaving passengers stranded in its path. (I personally feared my mural in Estonia would fall victim to the volcano. Air space cleared up only the day prior to departure.)

Just below the volcanic eruption lay the Thorvaldseyri Farm. It might not have had the best of days while the volcano spewed ash and covered the place, but the resourceful family now runs a museum dedicated to the event and sells volcanic souvenirs. When life gives you lemons, or in this case a whole lot of ash, they knew how to make some cash.
