2010 eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull. The 2010 eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull were volcanic events at Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland which, although relatively small for volcanic eruptions, caused enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe over an initial period of six days in April 2010.
Additional localised disruption continued into May 2010. The eruption was declared officially over in October 2010, when snow on the glacier did not melt. From 14–20 April, ash from the volcanic eruption covered large areas of Northern Europe. About 20 countries closed their airspace to commercial jet traffic and it affected approximately 10 million travellers. Seismic activity started at the end of 2009 and gradually increased in intensity until on 20 March 2010, a small eruption started rated as a 1 on the volcanic explosivity index. Beginning on 14 April 2010, the eruption entered a second phase and created an ash cloud that led to the closure of most of the European IFR airspace from 15 until 20 April 2010.
Disaster tourism. Disaster tourism is the act of traveling to a disaster area for pleasure, usually out of curiosity.
Origins of Disaster tourism Disaster Tourism is used for leisure travels to zones whipped by natural disasters or traumatic events known as "traumascapes". Some scholars argue that these sites offers a message to visitors and tourists in order for them to interpret their own life. Disaster tourism offers a pedagogical instrument to community to accelerate the time in post recovery process.

This is because the position of Indonesia which is located at the meeting point of three tectonic plates are colliding namely Eurasian plate, the Indo Australian Plate and the Pacific Plate. The third collision of these plates, making some parts breakdown on the earth's crust, in addition to generate heat, also produces molten rock (magma). Through cracks in the molten magma pushed up to the surface and forming volcanic cones and eventually make it into a series of active volcanoes. If you want to know more about the Volcano in Indonesia, you can visit the Merapi Volcano Museum, which was established on October 1, 2009 and is located at Dusun Banteng, Hargobinangun Village, Pakem District, Sleman Regency, Central Java, Indonesia.
