Thanks to a rogue volcano in Bali, that’s the reality for thousands of Australians, with cancelled flights causing surprise extended stays.
Among them is TV and radio host Chrissie Swan, who has hilariously spoken about the reality of being stuck in Bali.
“This is terrible in an Indonesian country because you know, no-one has a bottom the size of mine!”
Swan said she’d sent her husband to a department store to try and find some undies and he’d returned with a, erm, special pair of undies. (Post continues after gallery.)
“The store assistant offered him a pair and guess what they were called? Queen Large,” she joked.
“That’s the size I am in Bali and it’s also my new name. I’m wearing my Queen Larges.”
And from the sounds of it, the 41 year-old is making the best of a bad situation.
“Look, I am actually stranded. When the news first came in, I was frightened and nervous and then I just though, ‘Look at where you are!’,” she said.
“The only problem is work – it feels like I’m wagging school, but what can you do? I physically can’t get out.”
