Whut....? Nooooooooo!!!

Aiyooo!

I get a paper selected for presentation... I get some funding and Darling agrees to fund the rest... I book flights and pay for them... search for cheap hotels and book a room...

Then this happens....

-.-

Earthquakes, tsunamis and now the volcanic eruption, which is exactly 30km from the hotel. The subsequent eruptions that happened today have resulted in suspended flights.

I was all for going to Jakarta and then taking a train, thinking that even if the worst happens, I'll get some great pics. Darling pointed out that there are plenty of pics on the internet, but that there is only one of me, that I am however, a stellar idiot and he is now threatening to cut all funding.

Sigh....

that sucks :(
perhaps darling could channel funding to a picture-worthy location elsewhere?
if all fails lets order some nasi goreng and drink some vodka:)

Awwww! :( I know this in no way compares to what you're going through, but every time our family plans to go on a vacation someone in the family falls ill. I guess it's all for the best, who knows what will happen in the next couple of days? :S

P.S. Mr. Angel has a point. :)

Bummer for you!! We spent a large part of our honeymoon in Indonesia, and loved it.

Hey.. your darling is 1000% correct... I won't send my wife to a location where death is looming just around the corner..

you can enjoy Indonesia at a later time.... Angel... get a grip!!!

Thank you all for your really supportive comments and for your concern.

I guess right now it is totally out of my hands as the carrier I booked will not even land in Jakarta (about 500km away) much less Yogjakarta (40km away) where I was due to land.

It really is very frustrating though...
