The eruption of Mount Kelud near Java, Indonesia has interrupted my return from holidays in Bali.
The plane for my flight, which was coming from Singapore, had to deviate it’s route to avoid the “ash cloud”. Because of this, we were about 30 minutes late taking off. Add that to the additional time it took us to also fly around the volcano and it was just enough to make me miss my next flight.
I’m now sitting in the “Riverview Hotel” in Singapore, where Singapore Air has graciously put me up in a “day room”. Tonight I’ll fly on to Frankfurt and although about 12 hours later that I had hoped.
Better safe than sorry!
