Brisk Brussels

Brilliant Broadway

A Short But Sweet Ski Trip

I know I’ve ONLY just got back from leave, but those two flights clearly tired me out and it was time for me to go and crash my parents ski trip again. I was landing in the early hours from Frankfurt, so I had the whole of Saturday to catch a flight hopefully to either…

Final Festive Feels In Frankfurt

Heading To Hong Kong

Apologies once more on the silence on the blog, what is it about the festive period that just makes everyone so busy!? Anyway, since my last post I flew to Houston where for the first time in a very long time I did nothing with my layover. The crew weren’t bothered for very much and…
