Travellers' Travails

Not that I would wish the travails currently being experienced by travellers to and from Britain and Europe on anyone, but maybe there is a silver lining to those ash filled clouds produced by that volcano in Iceland.

Perhaps, just perhaps, it will make people a little less irritatingly blase about the immense privilege of travel. Perhaps it will show them that it is no small thing to travel to and enjoy other lands and that the world is not a theme park but a big, wonderful and sometimes awful place.

  1. I think there are a lot of good things that we could take from this volcano, for those of us prepared to look beyond the 'need' for fast speed travel.
