Adventures In Auckland

Ready for a super long day at work, it was time to venture to Auckland in New Zealand which is the longest direct flight that Emirates operates in its network. Leaving Dubai Tuesday morning, we landed into Auckland on Wednesday at 10:30am. What was a very pleasant surprise was my friend from home, Joe, was…

The Glorious Gold Coast

A swap from London Gatwick and Oslo to a long layover in Brisbane. We departed Dubai at 08:30am and it was 13 hours and 51 minutes over to Brisbane International Airport in Australia. Landing in the early hours it was straight to the hotel, and I ordered some room service for breakfast and slept for…

A Six Day Trip: Singapore and Melbourne

I managed to swap my Kuala Lumpur and London Heathrow flights for a six day trip to Singapore and Melbourne. Iโ€™d not visited either of these destinations since my first month of flying almost three years ago now, so I was happy to be going back there and getting three layovers rather than just two….

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 wasnโ€™t hugely fussed for the two trips and was happy to accept this trip to both Bangkok and Sydney. I…

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…

Kempt Katoomba

The final leg of my trip was in Sydney, one of my favourite cities to visit. Wanting to do something I hadn’t done before, and maybe not so achievable on a layover, myself and Katie (sadly it was back to work for Sophie) decided to head out to the Blue Mountains National Park to the…

The Great Barrier Reef

Continuing on from my previous post… we had finally arrived in Cairns and straight away got speaking to the concierge to pick out the best Great Barrier Reef trip! After flicking through many brochures and listening to her recommendations, we went with the Silverswift Tour which departed 8:30am giving us breakfast on the boat, all…

Picturesque Palm Cove

So my leave plans came together quite nicely actually! I was meant to be going to Hawaii with my room mate Hannah but as she fell and broke her wrist, our plans also fell through and I was left wondering what to do for two weeks. My two friends who I studied abroad with Katie…
