Ok my flight is supposed to leave Milan monday night but it seems likely it will be cancelled due to the ash in the air from the volcano. So I am without transport or accommodation soon. I went down to Milan train station to see if I can get a train to paris then a eurostar to London. The scene at the station must be similar to the last ash volcano disaster in Pompeii. A mixture of chaos and people standing very still, this time queuing up for a ticket. If anyone out there has a spare seat or knows the best way to London (or Paris/Calais) please let me know. If you have any suggestions on stopping the volcano spew it’s ash add them in the comments and at least I’ll feel like I’m making progress on my escape plan. Thanks Dominic email@example.com

this would be very helpful indeed!
You could put word out you’re looking for a shared car hire and drive to paris with a bunch of others and drop the car at the same hire company there then sail back?
Though this is of no practical help, the situation can only be described as Wilcoxian.
Why do all the icelandic people not sit on the volcano. like a big cork.
I’m afraid I can’t help you with stopping the volcanic ash, but I have a somewhat far-fetched suggestion. It’s only 640 km to Paris from Milan, and then about half that to London. Can you ride a bicycle? They are beautiful mechanical objects and often works of art. In an effort to not go into detail and bore you, I would just say riding one for a long period of time (especially when forced to) can be life-changing or even life-saving. If you don’t believe me, just google “a bicycle saved my life”. If you are unable to lessen your luggage and or physically cannot ride that long or spend that much time (although what alternative do you have, wait at a train station or airport hopelessly?), perhaps you have a motorcycle license and can hire one-way. It’s a great way to travel, especially through Europe, I would imagine! I rode through the English countryside and plan to do it many more times. Good luck.
Thank you for your comments and suggestions. I am now back in London after a 22 hour journey.
