A Jaunt To Jo’Burg

I was on home standby from 8am – 2pm and was pulled for a flight to Johannesburg in South Africa. It had been two years since I was last in Johannesburg and I was happy to finally receive a layover and be escaping the heat of Dubai for the winter of South Africa. Landing at…

Venturing To The Vatican

I received a swap for my Warsaw for someone’s Rome which I couldn’t accept quick enough. It was a 9:30am departure out of Dubai with 5 hours and 45 minutes over to Leonardo Da Vinci-Fiumicino International Airport. Landing just after 1:30pm we made our way across to the hotel and after checking in, I changed…

Swift Switzerland

Happy to be heading to a new destination and  it was a morning departure out of Dubai with 6 and a half hours over to Geneva Airport in Switzerland. Landing at lunchtime I changed quickly and decided to make my way into the city for a bit of sightseeing so that I wouldn’t waste too…

Magical Mauritius

 A morning departure out of Dubai and it was a lovely six and a half hours over to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius. It had been well over two years since I was last in Mauritius, and I didn’t have that much of a great experience. So after checking the weather forecast, I…

A Gossip Girl Guide To New York

For anyone who knows me or keeps up with my blog, you may be aware that I have a bit of a love for the hit US show Gossip Girl. I’ve been keen to do a Gossip Girl tour of New York and companies usually charge around $50 per person for this. However, a few…

Ancient Athens

A new destination for myself, I’ve visited a couple of the Greek islands (Santorini and Zakinthos) a few years back, but I’d never actually been the the main land itself. We were embarking on a six day trip to both Athens and New York and I was happy to be escaping the heat of the…

Mild Malta

Looking forward to this trip with work, I was eager to head to Malta to tick off country number 63! Quite a long day at work though as we go via Larnaca in Cyprus where we’re on ground for an hour and a half before complete the next sector to Malta. We departed Dubai at…

Sunshine And Showers In Shanghai

A 9:35am departure out of Dubai with 7 and a half hours over to Shanghai Pudong International Airport in China. Whenever I’m at work I always try to pick up some new phrases in the countries language. I remembered a couple of things from my last Chinese flight, so I utilised the language speakers and…

From Asia To Aus

I swapped my Copenhagen and Harare trips for a six day multisector to help out another crew member who needed to be in Copenhagen, in the hope it might get me some good karma! I wasn’t hugely fussed for the two trips and was happy to accept this trip to both Bangkok and Sydney. I…

Meandering Through Myanmar

Another new country to tick off, and it would be Myanmar that marks number 62 on my list. A 9am departure out of Dubai, it was a lovely and easy 4 hours and 50 minutes into Yangon International Airport. With just one service and time to squeeze in a trip to the flight deck and…
