Destination Dallas

We departed 2:50am out of Dubai with a nice 15 hours and 15 minutes over to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Prior to coming into DFW Airport we flew over Kansas where I studied abroad and following the map on the screens on the passenger seats it pointed out right where I used to live,…

Ships In Shanghai

An early morning departure out of Dubai and I slept surprisingly well beforehand to say how excited I was. My best friend who I hadn’t seen in 6 months is working on a cruise ship around Asia and she just happened to be docking in Shanghai the same time I was scheduled for a layover…

A Contrasting Cape Town

I wasn’t going to write on my recent trip to Cape Town as it was a little uneventful, however, I thought if anyone had taken inspiration from my last trip to Cape Town which sent it straight to the top of my favourite destinations it would hopefully help in choosing the time of year to…

Summertime in Seattle

After a blissful two weeks off, it was time to head back to work. Zero complaints though, as it was back stateside to a new destination of Seattle! Departing Dubai at 9:30am, it was 14 hours and 10 minutes over to Seattle – Tacoma International Airport. Landing around lunchtime, we headed through immigration and made…

Kempt Katoomba

The final leg of my trip was in Sydney, one of my favourite cities to visit. Wanting to do something I hadn’t done before, and maybe not so achievable on a layover, myself and Katie (sadly it was back to work for Sophie) decided to head out to the Blue Mountains National Park to the…

The Great Barrier Reef

Continuing on from my previous post… we had finally arrived in Cairns and straight away got speaking to the concierge to pick out the best Great Barrier Reef trip! After flicking through many brochures and listening to her recommendations, we went with the Silverswift Tour which departed 8:30am giving us breakfast on the boat, all…

Picturesque Palm Cove

So my leave plans came together quite nicely actually! I was meant to be going to Hawaii with my room mate Hannah but as she fell and broke her wrist, our plans also fell through and I was left wondering what to do for two weeks. My two friends who I studied abroad with Katie…

Lavish Los Angeles

Many apologies for my lack of posts recently, I feel like my rosters have been in shambles. There was no post on Dublin as I managed to swap to a Manilla so I could see Justin Bieber, however I was incredibly ill in Manilla. And due to delays in Manilla that resulted in me being…

A Very Special Trip To Manchester

I don’t usually write on my trips to Manchester as I’m usually just popping home and there isn’t a great deal to write on. However, I have an exception for todays post. I flew out of Dubai at 3am landing into Manchester Airport at 7:30 in the morning, I was beyond excited for this flight…

May 2017 Roster
