If you have to be held hostage somewhere Bali isn’t a bad place to be.
We’ve spent the day just lounging in a cabana by the pool. With the pool in front and green lawn and the beach behind it’s pretty good.
There has been a little to and fro from the reception trying to organise rooms in case we had to stay another night.
So it seems the Qantas flight is going tonight ( or early tomorrow) at 12.30am. This is a surprise to us as the Virgin crew flying with me to Brisbane have been partying by the pool all day and said ‘if we don’t fly then Qantas won’t ‘ seems she was wrong!
So I’ll be here alone night and tomorrow after they all leave the hotel at 9.30 pm. Then the dreaded overnight flight.
The kids have been in and out of the pool all day. Great fun.
We had a little walk along the beach and chatted to a few locals offering manicures, massage and a chat!
So people who come to Bali should not complain if they get held up here due to volcanic activity. The airlines don’t like it , the locals don’t like it, but there’s nothing you can do.
There is no insurance to cover the hold up, so plan for it or perhaps don’t come to Bali.
Safe travels everyone.
