“New York, New York, a city so nice, they named it twice”

I’m not quite sure how I managed to pull this off, but I managed to swap my three long back to back turn arounds, (Dhaka, Bombay and Mashad) for a flight to New York! I was beyond happy to see this swap, and got planning what would be a fun filled trip. We departed Dubai…

A Little Layover In Luanda

Back to work after some nice time off, and it was to a new country for myself – Angola! Departing Dubai at 10am, it was 8 hours over to Quatro de Fevereiro Airport in Luanda, Angola. One thing, that I was NOT expecting from Angola is that they speak Portuguese! This is because Angola was…

Koh Rong Island: Why Not To Visit

Our final stop of our vacation and we had decided to venture down to Koh Rong, an island off the south west coast of Cambodia. Known and loved for its beautifully pristine beaches and the ability to see glowing plankton on a night due to lack of light pollution on this remote island. Taking a…

Tonlé Sap: The Floating Village

I remember learning a case study on this when I was at school, and I would love to know if it’s the same place or not. One of the tourist “must do’s” when in Siem Reap, is to visit the floating village at lake Tonlé Sap. Tonlé Sap refers to a seasonally inundated freshwater lake, the…

A Trip To Thailand

Time for me to head away on leave again with my sister and we were heading to Siem Reap in Cambodia. However, Emirates fly to the capital Phnom Penh in the south and with Siem Reap being in the north and wanting to show my sister another city, we had a 2 night stop over…

Summer In South London

First of all, many apologies for the silence on my blog, not only have I been on holiday but my laptop had also broken, absolute nightmare. But a new one has been purchased and I can finally catch up on all my posts I need to do! So, sadly a swap from my Singapore flight…

Meeting In Manhattan

I’d not done a ULR (ultra long range) flight in almost 8 months before Boston and here I am with my second one in the space of two weeks. So it was back stateside but this time to New York, flying into Newark Liberty International rather than JFK. Departing Dubai at 3am, it was 14…
