Hey There Hong Kong

I managed to swap my trip to Frankfurt for one to Hong Kong. It had been about 18 months since I was last in Hong Kong so I was happy to see this on my roster. We departed Dubai at 3:15am and it was eight hours over to Hong Kong International Airport landing in the…

Zestful Zanzibar

Myself and my flat mate Grace had both randomly been assigned some days off at the beginning of July and we thought it was time we tick off a destination that is not achievable on a layover to us. Researching into all options that were both flight time and flight load dependent and also within…

Back To Back Bangkok

Off to work with a little mini multisector which involves a double sector in Bangkok. A destination I’m always happy to see and decent timings for exploring. We departed Dubai at 2:50am and it was a lovely five hours and forty minutes across to Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Landing at lunchtime, we made our way through…

Memorial Day Weekend In California

A swap from Los Angeles to San Francisco  and it was a lengthy sixteen hours across to the other side of the world. Landing at 2pm, we made our way out of the airport and across to the hotel. Most people were exhausted after a really busy day and the eleven hour time difference from…

Up To Uppsala

Continuing on from my last post, I wanted to visit somewhere outside of Stockholm that wouldn’t quite be achievable on a standard twenty four hour layover. I researched into the best places to visit, and one that kept on popping up was Uppsala. Just a short forty minute train ride away from Stockholm with incredibly…

Stellar Stockholm

Back from leave and back to work and it was a two day layover in Stockholm which made a nice treat! Usually layovers are only the one day, so I was very happy to not have to rush around like always. Departing Dubai at 8am, it was a lovely six hours over to Stockholm Arlanda…

Bliss In The Bahamas: Part Two

Continuing on from my previous post, we woke up the next day and wanted a more chilled out and relaxed one, as the day before involved an early start and was pretty none stop! We had a bit of a lie in before we grabbed a morning coffee and parked ourselves up on some sun…

Bliss In The Bahamas: Part One

Next part of our holiday and a place I have wanted to visit for the longest time was the Bahamas. It was a new country for me to visit, taking my total up to 69! We flew from JFK to Lynden Pingling International Airport in Nassau with Delta and it was a nice and easy…
