Earthquake activity in Öræfajökull remains at low levels but well above background levels for Öræfajökull volcano. At the moment there are no clear signs of when or if a volcano eruption is going to happen. Some time ago Icelandic Met Office moved Öræfajökull volcano from Yellow to Green status.


Please remember to support my work with donations. I am going to be extremely broke this May due to bills I have to pay in Denmark. Thanks for the support. 🙂

Please note that at the end of May I am moving back to Iceland because I got annoyed and sick of being always broke while living in Denmark. I’ll post more details when I get closer to moving back to Iceland.

  1. Please remember to support my work this month. Currently I am around 400 DKK / 54€ away from having afford to pay the electricity bill and that is the last bill I have to pay this month. The reason for this lack of money is that I had to buy food to eat.

    This is annoying situation for me but it can’t be helped at the moment. I am changing this situation by moving back to Iceland. Thanks for the support. 🙂

    I have also made a minor plan change to my plan on moving to Spain. I might be moving to Germany instead when I find apartment in Frankfurt Am Main. The reason being that buying a house in Spain costs a lot of money and saving that amount of money takes such a long time that it might be more economical for me to rent in Frankfurt Am Main then to buy a house in Spain. I can move to Frankfurt Am Main soon as I have a place to rent (via rental company) and that would only cost me 8000€ in saving (at maximum, lower amount like 6000€ is also possible). Instead of having to save more than 22.000€ for a house down payment in Spain.

    I am a big city person so that is not going to be a issue for me. In fact I prefer the big cities to small towns. That is just who I am apparently.
