In Thingvellir (Þingvellir), Iceland, the North American and Eurasian Teutonic plates meet. Or at least they once did. Continental drift has been causing them to separate for 10,000 years. They move an average of 3mm a year. Currently, they are about 70m (76 yds) apart.

My head knew these facts, but there was still a part of me that had to think, “what if there is an earthquake right as I am passing through?”
