Thank you volcano! Stuck in Goa, India.

Wow, it's been a while since I last blogged.  Had an interesting holiday in India and then the volcano thing happened.  We were in Delhi when we heard ~ our first thought was what's a volcano in Iceland got to do with us, we're in India?!  Then we heard the rest ~ our plane was stuck somewhere in the Caribbean! And no one was going anywhere.

We were so lucky compared with alot of other travellers we met. We booked with Thomson and they put us up in a hotel and paid for all our food.  It was terrible that some people were just dumped by their tour company/airline and were just left to sort it out themselves. Worse hit were travellers with non-European companies who booked online.

At the Taj Mahal and riding an elephant (I might be smiling, but the bloke wouldn't stop hitting the elephant and I was getting slightly irritated to say the least!).

Anyway finally got back home and the cooler temp was very welcome.  Our holiday in Thailand went pear shaped because of the problems out there, but never mind ~ plenty to do at home!
