My 2nd top bid month and only one thing I asked for… however a wide mix of trips, so in October I shall be going to:
DME – Moscow, Russia Layover
CPT – Cape Town, South Africa Layover
KIX – Osaka, Japan Layover
RUH – Riyadh, Saudi Arabia Turn Around
PEK – Beijing, China Layover
Normal Annual Leave
CAI – Cairo, Egypt Turn Around
BHX – Birmingham, UK Layover
So a wide mix thrown into the bunch there. Kicking off the month in Russia! I’ve been here before and I’m looking to send out a few swaps for a new destination hopefully! After this I have three days off and my room mate Hannah has 5 so we’re planning a little jaunt somewhere and making the most of some cheap tickets, so stay posted for where I head on a little venture.
Next up it’s Cape Town, the weather will be warming up again in Cape Town, so fingers crossed I’ll actually be head up Table Mountain unlike last time I was there with the bad weather.
After this I’m finally heading back to Japan and can tick off a new destination of Osaka! It will be so nice to explore a new city here and I’m hoping to head over to the bamboo forest. If anyone has any suggestions on what to do here please do drop a comment below.
No surprise to see a Saudi turn around on my flight and then this is followed by Beijing. It’s been almost 18 months since I was last in Beijing and it would be great to go to the Forbidden City. I’m also rostered to fly with my batch mate Danica so I may keep this, I’ll see if anyone offers me anything exciting for it!
Following on from this I have leave again, I’m first of all heading back home to the UK for a night before me and two of my best friends jet off to Iceland for three days!! I cannot wait to add a new country to the list and most importantly, finally see the Northern Lights! It’s been on my bucket list for such a long time and I can’t wait to spend some time with best friends.
Bringing me back to work is a day time flight to Cairo which I’m hoping will be quick and easy before it’s back to the UK again to head to Birmingham. It isn’t home for me and I also don’t have any friends there anymore. I may see if my Mum wants to come down and visit or I may be a tourist in my own city for once and go to the birth place of Shakespeare. Who knows!
