Stuck Between Airborne Volcanic Rock And A Hard Place

Bangkok, I'm yours for a few more days

Bangkok, I'm yours for a few more days

I was supposed to be leaving for Spain today, but fate finds me still in Thailand. The huge ash cloud hovering over Europe has caused enough chaos in the air traffic system that I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be leaving. My hope is that I will be leaving within a day or two, but I have no idea.

Technically, Spain hasn’t really been effected by the ash cloud. It hasn’t extended beyond the French Pyrenees so far. However, my original flight was supposed to be on Air France with a connecting flight through Paris. Moreover, planes which might have flown a route to Bangkok might have been stranded in Germany, so things gets screwed up all over the world.

The end result is that even though there is technically no ash between Thailand and Spain, I’m stuck in Bangkok.
