Dubai Life: Leisurely Lunching

It’s not often I write on Dubai and one of my favourite things to do on my days off is eat lunch. If you hadn’t guessed it by now, I’m a real foodie so I thought I’d compile a list of quirky, picturesque lunch stops that either serve great food, great coffee or have an…

Cold, Cold Canada

I swapped my trip to Accra for one to Toronto, albeit a 24 hour layover, but it had been a long time since I was last in Toronto. Flying out of Dubai at 03:45am, it was 14 hours over to Toronto Pearson International Airport landing just before 9am. By the time I got across to…

December 2018 Roster

I can’t quite believe I’m writing this, the final roster of 2018 is here? Where on earth has this year gone?! It doesn’t feel like five minutes ago since I was on my way to work for the first flight of the year headed to Hong Kong. There’s always a certain amount of nerves surrounding…

A Merry Little Manchester

It’s not often I write on Manchester as I usually go home, but with my parents away on holiday and my sister at uni, I had decided to stay in Manchester. It also coincided with my friends birthday perfectly and she had taken the day off work, so we decided to go for afternoon tea…

Spectacular South Africa

Bringing me back from my leave was a trip to Cape Town, which is a favourite destination of mine and one that I had been looking forward to since I saw it on my November roster. We flew out of Dubai International Airport at 4am and landed 9 hours 30 minutes later into South Africa…

Kudos To Krakow

Time for me to head on leave again, and me and a couple of my friends from home, Lucy and Amy, had decided to visit Krakow in Poland. It was somewhere Iโ€™d wanted to visit for a while due to it being a very cheap city break, being rich in culture and very close to…

A Six Day Trip: Singapore and Melbourne

I managed to swap my Kuala Lumpur and London Heathrow flights for a six day trip to Singapore and Melbourne. Iโ€™d not visited either of these destinations since my first month of flying almost three years ago now, so I was happy to be going back there and getting three layovers rather than just two….

November 2018 Roster

A very underwhelming roster to receive, it seems a good few hours will be spent on the swaps page sorting out my November. Hey ho, that’s how it is sometimes. In November I shall be going to…

Enticing Edinburgh

One of our newest destinations on the Emirates Network is to the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh. I was excited to see this on my roster as Iโ€™d never been to Edinburgh, and I never seem to get the new destinations this quickly. Departing Dubai at 9:55am, it was 7 hours and 10 minutes over to…

Memorable Miami

A trip I’d been wanting for a long time, and I was happy to see Fort Lauderdale pop up on my roster. Our layovers here are between two and a half days to five days long, but we’d been placed on an extra flight and were only getting 33 hours here sadly. When the pilots…
