The City That Never Sleeps

I was on a 6am-10am airport standby when around ninety minutes into my standby I was pulled out for a trip to New York. I was very happy to see this on my roster as it was a 30 hour layover rather than the 24 hour one I’ve always done and it meant spending my…

New York: A Helicopter Tour Over Manhattan

Continuing on from my previous post, we left Athens at 6pm and landed into Newark Liberty International Airport just before 9pm. A nice and easy ten hour flight across the Atlantic. By the time we got to the hotel most people were exhausted with the time difference and the flight over, so I headed to…

A Holiday To The Big Apple: Part Two

Continuing on from my last post, we finished up brunch at The Butcher’s Daughter and went back to the hotel to change and freshen up after Soul Cycle before we continued on with our day a couple of hours later. We caught the subway uptown to near the top of Central Park and strolled through…

A Holiday To The Big Apple: Part One

I really apologise for the lack of posts recently, I know I said this in my last post however I genuinely haven’t done much on my layovers other than visit the UK. Sadly on my trip to Bangkok I slept through my alarm and just ended up getting my nails done which I was so…

“New York, New York, a city so nice, they named it twice”

I’m not quite sure how I managed to pull this off, but I managed to swap my three long back to back turn arounds, (Dhaka, Bombay and Mashad) for a flight to New York! I was beyond happy to see this swap, and got planning what would be a fun filled trip. We departed Dubai…

Meeting In Manhattan

Iโ€™d not done a ULR (ultra long range) flight in almost 8 months before Boston and here I am with my second one in the space of two weeks. So it was back stateside but this time to New York, flying into Newark Liberty International rather than JFK. Departing Dubai at 3am, it was 14…

A Gossip Girl Guide To New York

For anyone who knows me or keeps up with my blog, you may be aware that I have a bit of a love for the hit US show Gossip Girl. Iโ€™ve been keen to do a Gossip Girl tour of New York and companies usually charge around $50 per person for this. However, a few…

Brilliant Broadway

You may be confused to see this on my roster, but I managed to swap my turn around to Kuwait and a layover in Glasgow for a trip to New York. Albeit the 24 hour layover, but still, I was heading to New York! Departing Dubai at 2:30am it was 13 hours and 50 minutes…
