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…

Live From London

I swapped my Milan layover and a day off for a turn around to Karachi and a layover in London Gatwick as I had tickets to see Ariana Grande at the London O2 Arena. A very lucky swap for the other person, but it was working out in my favour too! A very early departure…

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 wouldn’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

First of all, many apologies for the silence on my blog, not only have I been on holiday but my laptop had also broken, absolute nightmare. But a new one has been purchased and I can finally catch up on all my posts I need to do! So, sadly a swap from my Singapore flight…

Wandering Through Windsor

Yet ANOTHER trip to London Heathrow and I thought I should do something a little more exciting. A couple of our Heathrow flights stay by Windsor and thought it be the perfect opportunity to go and explore somewhere relatively new. I say relatively as the last time I came to Windsor was when I was…

Lively London

I was rostered to be heading to Colombo with a transit stop in the Maldives, however someone sent me a swap for a London Heathrow flight which was over the weekend too, so I quickly accepted and got arranging what I knew would be a busy trip! Landing at 8pm after a very busy flight,…
