Back To College

This past week I have been back at Emirates Aviation College for my service reassessments that mark the end of probation, to learn Duty Free and to also graduate! The week began on Monday morning with a 7:30 start. For the first two days we had different sessions, exams and assessments to ensure we were…

The End of Training, The Beginning Of Travelling The World

I cannot quite believe that training is over. The last eight weeks at training college have gone by so quickly. I have learnt so so much and had so much fun with everyone, and I really am going to miss going there every day. I have had some seriously amazing trainers who have been so…

Service Training (And A Trip To The Desert)

Now to learn what Emirates is renowned for, its world class service. At 7:30am last Sunday I was in my seat at college Β ready for the next week ahead of me, and wow what a lot I have already learnt! Through different classroom sessions, simulator practicals, aircraft familiarisation lessons and exams I am now beginning…

From The Red Polo To The Emirates Uniform

This past week saw the last of the red polo shirts for training. It’s crazy to think how fast training is going, and I now only have 11 days left at Aviation College! The week began with our security training which was incredibly interesting to learn about and we had a class on self defence…

Group Medical Training + My Family Visit!!

This past week saw the beginning and end of Group Medical Training (GMT) and this is the one I was most apprehensive about. Anyone who knows me, knows that I don’t even like to give myself paracetamol, however after this week of intense training, I now feel incredibly prepared for many a medical situation that…

The Famous Red Hat

What a week it’s been. I don’t feel like I’ve stopped at all, only now to write this post. My time in Dubai is absolutely flying by and it’s exactly a month ago today that I left everything behind and moved my life to the Middle East – and I wouldn’t change it for the…

Three Weeks In

I can‘t quite believe its been just over three weeks since I moved to Dubai. Dubai has well and truly stolen my heart and I’m going to find it very difficult to live anywhere else ever again. This place is unreal and I constantly find myself entrancedΒ with the views I get to see day in…

Somewhere In The Middle Of SEP…

First of all, apologies on the lack of posts recently. I have been super busy these past 2 weeks – I can’t actually believe it has been two weeks since I posted, where does time go? So, I last said I had just completed my first few days at the HQ and I was to…

The Start of Training!!

So, I’ve finally started the eight weeks of training with Emirates on Sunday and wow what a tiring few days its been. On Sunday morning my alarm went off at 5am – yes 5am – to get to work on time. As I was still adjusting to the time difference (3 hours) trying to get…

I’m in Dubai! πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ͺ

Touch down in Dubai, I cannot believe I’m finally here. I left my house around 10:30am on Friday after a mad stress of packing, re packing, weighing and re-weighing cases, having to quickly dash up to River Island to buy something to wear on the flight and making sure I had absolutely everything I needed….
