Sent To Saint Petersburg

It was another new destination for me and I was being sent back to Russia but this time with the destination of St Petersburg. I’ve been bidding for St Petersburg for the longest time, and was happy to finally see this on my January roster despite the chilly temperatures that Russia receives in the winter….

Heavenly Hungary

Finally it was time for me to visit a new country and I couldn’t wait to visit a city I’d seen and heard so much about and been told by numerous people that I would fall in love with the city immediately. We left Dubai at 9am and landed into Budapest a lovely five and…

From Russia With Love

An afternoon departure out of Dubai at 16:30 in the afternoon with a nice and easy five hours over to Moscow Domodedovo International Airport in Russia. Landing in the evening, it was rather late by the time we got to the hotel so I ordered some room service before calling it a night. The next…

A Double UK Trip

Following on from Munich, I had two back to back trips to the UK. First up was a layover to Manchester which is home for me! My parents have recently moved house (still upset they’ve sold my childhood home but let’s not get into that) so it was time to check out the new neighbourhood…

Maundering Through München

I want to apologise for the silence on the blog, November has been the craziest, busiest month ever and I’ve barely had a moment to myself. I managed to swap my six day trip that I was originally rostered and this swap included a layover to Munich. I then had my parents visiting Dubai, followed…

Blessed In Birmingham

I took the Sunday morning flight to Birmingham landing lunchtime to a gorgeous day. I’d arranged with my parents for them to drive down from Leeds so we could go for some Sunday lunch as it had been about six weeks since I’d last seen them. What was such a lovely surprise was that they’d…

A Day Trip To Bratislava, Slovakia

My final flight of August and one that I was looking forward to too! A new destination for me as crew and I was heading to Vienna in Austria, however as you can probably tell from my blog post title, I had a different ideas for my layover. Departing Dubai at 15:50 it was five…
