The Gods must be angry!
The irony – it was almost a year ago to the very day when we were planning our expedition to Iceland and there were warnings of a potential volcano eruption in the region. And can you believe it. We are about a week away from leaving on our epic expedition through the Spice Islands in Indonesia and it’s happened again. This one is serious. Mount Agung in Bali is on the verge of a massive eruption. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from the area and significant seismic activity is being recorded suggesting an eruption is imminent.
Unless something changes (unlikely), that means all the airports will shut, ash will blanket the area, chaos will prevail and the impact on the island of Bali could be disastrous – and of course we will not be going to the Spice Islands because we won’t be able to get in.
So I’m left questioning myself – what have I done to piss the Gods off so much? Do I need to sacrifice a lamb, a small child? Do I need to send virgins up the mountain and throw them into the molten lava? Give me a sign…
