Bali - do you live there, or been there recently?

We are due to go to Bali in January. Now, not too worried about volcano doing the big one, but wondering just what it is like there at the moment? We will be down in the south, well away from the action, but cannot find any info on ash clouds obscuring any sunshine, or any other mindless concerns!
We will not cancel, just curious.
Also, should we make room in luggage to take stuff for locals, or would that be patronising?

That would be pretty patronising in my opinion. Haven’t been for a couple of years, but lived there for 6 months. Just spend your money there, buy things, eat in restaurants, take the time to speak to people. It’s my favourite place on this earth. Not sure how the volcano will be effecting anything bar what’s been reported.

Thanks Badger good to know. I did not want to come over all Lady Bountiful 😊

I don’t live there but have family and tourism has been hugely affected as travel insurance companies won’t cover people, so they cannot book.
