Blissful Barcelona

From my August Roster post, I said how I received two seychelles and after my first beautiful trip there which was tainted a little with rain, I chanced my luck on the swaps page for some new destinations. A week or so later, someone had accepted a swap to the beautiful city of Barcelona! And…

Astonishing Amsterdam

It’s been a while since I’ve seen Europe on my roster, and what better time of year than summer. Surprisingly its also a new destination for myself, so I was excited to see what Amsterdam was all about. Departing out of Dubai at 8:05am, it was a lovely 6 hours and 30 minutes over to…

Marvellous Malaysia

An evening time departure out of Dubai at 21:29 and it was a nice 7 hours and 17 minutes over to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. It was a completely full two class flight with two services and despite flying through the night to land at 08:46 in the morning, I honestly didn’t stop! After getting…

Scenic Seychelles

A late night departure out of Dubai, but with a short 4 hours over to AΓ©roport de la Pointe Larue in the Seychelles, I could hardly complain at getting to spend the day here. The majority of our layovers are a minimum of 24 hours, but with it such a short flight this one was…

Calming Colombo

A very short and sweet post on my recent venture to Colombo. We departed Dubai at 9:55am and our first stop of the trip was to Male in the Maldives. I’ve realised that anything that departs between 4am and 12pm I’m not a massive fan of, I’m much better at late/really early morning departures or…

Harmonious Ha Long Bay

I’d been really looking forward to this trip Hanoi, its still a pretty new destination with Emirates and the majority of crew hadn’t been before so I was sure people would be up for some exploring! Checking the weather before the flight I could see it was forecast for constant thunderstorms whilst we were there,…

Average Adelaide

In my July Roster post I said how I had Singapore, not being a massive fan of Singapore I sent out a few swaps for new destinations and someone accepted for Adelaide which was a great way for me to also add to my flying hours that month! We departed out of Dubai at 02:05am…

Breathtaking Bali

A swap from Beijing to Bali and it was a night time departure out of Dubai at 1:25am with 9 hours and 20 minutes over to Ngurah Rai International Airport. On the flight over we had discussed going surfing that afternoon, but upon arrival it was getting too late so we changed our plans to…

Nature In Nairobi

I finally managed to head to Nairobi in Kenya which is a destination I had been wanting to visit for a while. We departed Dubai at 4pm and it was a nice 4 hours and 50 minutes over to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Quickly disembarking and driving over to the hotel we had arranged to…

Destination Dallas

We departed 2:50am out of Dubai with a nice 15 hours and 15 minutes over to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Prior to coming into DFW Airport we flew over Kansas where I studied abroad and following the map on the screens on the passenger seats it pointed out right where I used to live,…

Ships In Shanghai

An early morning departure out of Dubai and I slept surprisingly well beforehand to say how excited I was. My best friend who I hadn’t seen in 6 months is working on a cruise ship around Asia and she just happened to be docking in Shanghai the same time I was scheduled for a layover…

A Contrasting Cape Town

I wasn’t going to write on my recent trip to Cape Town as it was a little uneventful, however, I thought if anyone had taken inspiration from my last trip to Cape Town which sent it straight to the top of my favourite destinations it would hopefully help in choosing the time of year to…
