'It's unreal' -Tourists watch volcanic eruption in Iceland

STORY: One pair of onlookers, Jessie Bull and Aidan Charles from Vancouver, Canada, described the experience as "amazing" but "kinda scary."

Estonian dentists Kristi Tahepold and Ene Konigswieser weren't short of adjectives for the volcano's fire show, saying it was "surreal," "crazy," "unreal" and naturally "super, super hot."

The Fagradalsfjall, about 20 miles (32 kilometres) from Iceland's capital Reykjavik, erupted on Wednesday (August 3).
