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…

Ambient Austria

After swapping a couple of my flights I was able to join my parents on their annual January ski trip to Austria. Landing from Birmingham just after midnight, I whizzed straight over to the airport hoping to catch the very full looking 3:30am flight to Munich. I managed to squeeze the last seat on the…

Mild Madrid

Apologies for the delay on this post, Christmas, my Birthday and New Years Eve got in the way, so Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to everyone reading! I hope it’s a great one for you, and one full of new destinations for myself. My final layover before Christmas break was to Madrid,…

A Super Special Stansted

I swapped my trip to Prague for a special trip to one of our new destinations in the UK which is Stansted. Usually I wouldnโ€™t swap a nice European layover for a London flight but this one was an extra flight where we would be deadheading on the way to London Stansted as we were…

A Merry Little Manchester

It’s not often I write on Manchester as I usually go home, but with my parents away on holiday and my sister at uni, I had decided to stay in Manchester. It also coincided with my friends birthday perfectly and she had taken the day off work, so we decided to go for afternoon tea…

Kudos To Krakow

Time for me to head on leave again, and me and a couple of my friends from home, Lucy and Amy, had decided to visit Krakow in Poland. It was somewhere Iโ€™d wanted to visit for a while due to it being a very cheap city break, being rich in culture and very close to…

Enticing Edinburgh

One of our newest destinations on the Emirates Network is to the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh. I was excited to see this on my roster as Iโ€™d never been to Edinburgh, and I never seem to get the new destinations this quickly. Departing Dubai at 9:55am, it was 7 hours and 10 minutes over to…
