Question: Where can you touch Europe and North America at the same time?

Answer: In the Silfra fissure, underwater in Iceland, about an hour’s drive from Reykjavik. It’s reachable with a wet-suit scuba dive to about 200 feet deep. The tectonic plate of North America is on one side, and the Eurasian tectonic plate is on the other, just feet apart. You can see photos at the link above.
