The volcanic ash cloud from Iceland has caused flight chaos over much of Europe, and there have been three noteworthy journeys in the last few days.

Jens Stoltenberg had to get back from Madrid via Switzerland in a plane/car combination journey, Norway’s King Harald drove to Copenhagen to attend Queen Margrethe of Denmark’s 70th birthday celebrations, and John Cleese took a taxi from Oslo to Brussels after appearing on Frederik Skavlan’s show on NRK to meet his daughter.

In a situation reminiscent of “Clockwise”, Mr Cleese travelled over 1,000 kilometres, paying 30,000 kroner to get there, before taking a Eurostar train back to London afterwards.

If you missed his TV appearance, he’ll be back in Norway for performances of his “Paying My Ex-Wife Year Two” show in September later on this year.

“Iceland can neither control its volcanoes, nor its banks,” he told Dagbladet.
