Our bags are packed and we’re all ready to leave on our big 6 month long trip, only to find out that all flights out of London have been cancelled due to volcanic ash floating over the UK from Iceland. The day we arrived in England they had the most snow they had had in 18 years and the day we plan to leave there is volcanic ash in the sky. Pretty strange. If you’re wondering why planes shouldn’t fly when there is volcanic ash in the sky then you’ve come to the right place – I have created a very technical image to explain.
Apparently we could get a replacement flight on Sunday afternoon, but Monday is more likely.
