Last Minute London

My second flight of my reserve month and it was to London Heathrow, not Manchester for a visit to home, but kind of my second home in the UK. My Auntie, Uncle and little cousins live here and also the majority of my university friends, so always happy to see this on my roster. I…

London At Last

So if you keep up to date with my blog, you’ll see from my September Roster post that I was originally rostered to be going to Jakarta, Indonesia despite bidding for this specific London Gatwick flight. After much time spent on the swaps page, I managed to change onto the flight I wanted so I could…

The Norths In Newcastle

It’s finally back to work for me with the lovely destination of Newcastle in the UK! A completion of the whole of the UK with Emirates destinations now. We departed Dubai at 7:25am with just a short 6 hours and 26 minutes over to Newcastle. Landing at lunch time, my parents were driving up to…

The flight departed at 7:25 in the…

My latest trip was to Birmingham in the UK. Close to home, but not close enough to actually visit home, so I made them come and visit me instead! We left Dubai on the afternoon flight and landed into Birmingham around 8pm on the Saturday evening. I headed to the hotel to meet my friend…

A Lovely London Layover

My most recent trip was to London Gatwick which I was looking forward to as it meant I could see my uni girls and also my auntie, uncle and cousins that live there! I was also more pleased with Gatwick than Heathrow as it’s much closer to everyone! I landed at 6:20am and as soon…

Glasgow Greetings

I’m back from a very bittersweet layover from Glasgow. I say bittersweet as my friend Ellie was meant to be coming up to visit and stay with me for my 24 hours however the bad weather and flooding in England stopped the trains between Manchester and Glasgow which stopped her from coming up! So when…
