Between Continents

It was our last day in Iceland, we had a bit of time before our flight back to the US. On the first day we had heard about a bridge that would allow us to span the continental divide between North America and Europe. 

The bridge between the continents was only 15 minutes from the airport, so we headed there for our last Icelandic adventure. 

The bridge is not very large, but it marks the official division between the two continental plates. We were also told that the demarcation line between the plates is peppered with volcanos. It makes sense.

It was a really unique experience to be in two continents at once and to consider just how big the North American continent truly is!
