North and South

Earlier this year I saw the southernmost active volcano in the world: Mount Erebus on Ross Island in Antarctica. For me a very special moment. It became even more special when I saw the northernmost active volcano in the world last week. When we landed on the small island in the North Atlantic Jan Mayen, we saw the lower slopes of the Beerenberg. Unfortunately the cone was hidden by the clouds, but it was still nice to see the lower slopes.
