Ash Be Gone. (Please.)

iceland-volcano-eruptionYesterday morning, I awakened to the troubling news that most flights to Europe had been cancelled because of that pesky Icelandic volcano. But it was Thursday, I reasoned, and my flight to Paris wasn’t until the following Wednesday. So I took a deep breath and relaxed. The four-hand massage I experienced later that afternoon definitely helped alleviate any anticipatory stress I was feeling. Seriously.

As a lover of the art of massage, I’ve had some good ones in my time. But a four-hand massage is an indescribably extraordinary experience. I could use the word “bliss” as a descriptor, but it isn’t just overused, it’s inaccurate. The two women who performed this massage were like two perfectly synchronized dancers. And as I lay there on the table, the images found while looking through a kaleidoscope kept popping into my head. I don’t know why. At one point, after I’d flipped over onto my back, I actually (silently) thanked God for the experience – and I’m not in any way, shape or form a religious person.

But I digress.

It is both amazing and terrifying that one little volcano has the ability to cause a bigger disruption in air travel than any other time in history. During a nature walk yesterday, we came upon a pimento tree that had the most unusual bark. “It looks like nature painted this tree by hand,” I said. And after being introduced to other unusual flora and fauna, I was even more in awe of “nature” than ever before.

Today, nature is pissing me off a little.

Volcanologists are saying this particular eruption isn’t likely to stop for at least 48 hours, and meteorologists have concluded that there won’t be any change to the jet stream for at least five days. So, some mathologist has come out to say that means that we’re likely to see major disruptions in air travel for the next five to seven days.

I really, really, really want to get back to Paris next Wednesday. Really. So I’m stressed out and thinking that I might need another four-hand massage. Maybe two.

Has anyone else had their international travel plans disrupted? Share.

    I’m crossing my fingers you get to leave Miami!!

  2. This volcano has turned out to be a major nightmare. We have about 25 different clients who either could not leave or can not arrive. I want it to end now. I have only slept 5 hours last night as dealing with all of this. Aie.

  3. Virginia says:

    Oh Linda,
    Quelle dommage! I am keeping my fingers crossed for you. Yes, you do need to get to Paris! Bon chance!

    Bon jour Linda,
    I just recently returned from Paris after a 5 day extension to my trip due to the volcano. Although it was nice to have this very good “excuse” for staying longer, it was a bit frightening when there was concern that the volcano could mean a month long extension. It was surreal to be “stranded” in our 4 star hotel under beautiful clear blue skies.
    I was happy, relieved, and sad when we were able to leave, mais le finale est tres mal… Air France lost my luggage. Merde! (pardon)
    Hope you have been able to book a flight by now.

  5. Linda Donahue says:

    I got out exactly when I was booked to fly. I felt like I won the lottery. I’m sorry you were stranded here, but if I had to be stranded anywhere in the world, it would definitely be Paris.

    Or in George Clooney’s villa on Lake Como. Preferably with George there.
