Although the predicted (and much-anticipated) volcanic eruptions of September and October have not materialized, Mt Agung is still ever present in our day-to-day lives and thinking here in Bali.
The mountain occasionally releases gas and ash high into the atmosphere, and she’s had a small handful of eruptions since Christmas. But prevailing winds are blowing the gas and ash away from Bali’s international airport, so there have been no disruptions to travel.
Our two boats are still cruising 1,500 miles away in the safety of Raja Ampat and Moluccan waters in eastern Indonesia and are well out of harm’s way. Whatever happens, Mt Agung’s tantrums will not be an issue for us. It’s business as usual in 2018!
