    Default Where in the World are you?

    Tales of the ash refugees.....
    Barry and I are currently hosting Terry Chapman from the USA club, currently marooned here in the UK after a business trip. I hear rumours that Bob and Gill Coles are stuck somewhere in India.
    Anyone else out there stranded by an Icelandic Volcano?

    My in laws are stuck in Florida.

    My dad is also stuck in the states - but he was only due to come back for a week for an interview at the embassy on the 22nd before emigrating permanently on the 1st May, by which time he will be homeless and goodness knows how complicated that is all going to become...it was bad enough already!

    Isn't it all such a scary reminder of how reliant we are on the rest of the world!

    5 of us are supposed to fly out of Chicago heading for Mumbai India tomorrow. We're taking it hour by hour, but hopes are high we'll make it. Our hovers have been there a week now.

    PS. Florida's not such a bad place to be stuck in as long as you don't run out of money. And I bet Terry doesn't mind hanging around the UK a little longer although I'm sure his Family wishes he was home.

    i spent all last week in the netherlands, very unhappy about the drive over, but then very glad we did not fly. a friend that flew, had to return in the boot of the car, sat on a blanket lol. woof woof

    there are people lining the roads into the ferry ports, trying to get into cars. even some clever people who obviously bought knackered push bikes, just so they could get on the non foot passenger ferries from dunkirk.

    its not nice at the ports!

    When they tried to book train tickets on the eurostar the prices had gone up 200% so they are still here.

    How did the world cope without planes!!!!!!!!!
