Earthquake activity in Öræfajökull volcano

Yesterday (29-May-2018) there was a minor increase in earthquake activity in Öræfajökull volcano. The increase in earthquake activity was mostly in line with what has been happening in recent months.

Largest earthquake in this swarm had the magnitude of 2,1 and all other earthquakes were smaller in magnitude. That magnitude is from 0,0 and up to magnitude 1,0.

Moving to Iceland

I am going to be moving to Iceland in one day. That means there might be a slight delay in me writing a new article if something happens while that is in progress. At the moment I am only working on a laptop in a limited capability. At the moment I don’t know when I get up to full capability, but at the latest that won’t happen until August.

  1. I am currently moving to Iceland. The minor earthquake activity in Bárðarbunga volcano is not at the level I am going to write about it.

  2. I have updated my moving plan slightly (from Iceland to Germany). I have moved my moving location from Düsseldorf to Hamburg, Germany. I like being close to the ocean and it might also be considerably cheaper (I haven’t checked that detail yet) for to move to Hamburg rather than Düsseldorf (in terms of living). At least it is cheaper in terms of moving costs.

    It is going to take me 20 to 24 months to save up for the costs on moving to Hamburg, Germany (apartment+moving costs). I don’t know how long time searching and getting an apartment is going to take. I plan on being in school learning German and more electronic skills until I move to Germany (the costs are 4500€ in housing costs+other items and 300.000 ISK (~2.449,58) in moving costs).

    I have no plans on moving back to Denmark since the experience of that has only been negative one. I also don’t like living in Iceland and after just three days I’m already exhausted living in Iceland.
