Time For Tunis

FINALLY, I was heading to Tunisia. I’ve been removed numerous times from the flight for operational reasons and I was beyond happy to be visiting the beautiful city of Tunis in the warm summer months. Departing Dubai at 9am it was just under 6 hours over to Tunis-Carthage International Airport. Landing lunchtime (ish) after we…

Exploring Entebbe

I was on 6am – 10am Airport Standby and as I had had two days off prior, I was legally rested for ANY trip. This could have been a ULR (ultra long range) or a 6 day multisector trip. So my case was absolutely packed out with clothes for all trips. I had a bikini…

A Jaunt To Jo’Burg

I was on home standby from 8am – 2pm and was pulled for a flight to Johannesburg in South Africa. It had been two years since I was last in Johannesburg and I was happy to finally receive a layover and be escaping the heat of Dubai for the winter of South Africa. Landing at…

Magical Mauritius

 A morning departure out of Dubai and it was a lovely six and a half hours over to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius. It had been well over two years since I was last in Mauritius, and I didn’t have that much of a great experience. So after checking the weather forecast, I…

Dreamy Dakar

After our short flight over from Conakry, we landed into Blaise Diagne International Airport at 14:51 in the afternoon. This would also make Senegal my 60th visited country, quite the achievement for age 24! It was quite a long drive over to the hotel, but we checked in and I arranged to meet three of…

Crestfallen Conakry

Another new destination for me to head to, and I was eager to be heading away on this 6 day trip with work to tick off not one but two new countries. The first sector of the trip was to Conakry in Guinea, on the west coast of Africa. It was 9 hours and 45…

Adventitious Algeria

After my little venture away I was back to work and ready to go and tick off country number 55! It was a morning departure out of Dubai at 8am with 7 and a half hours over to Houari Boumediene Airport in Algiers. Landing just after lunchtime, we checked into our hotel and 7 of…

An Adventure Across Africa

I apologise for the silence on the blog recently. Since my last post on Dublin, I was Home on 5 days off for a friend from home wedding! Then straight after that it was back to Manchester as crew which I never really write on as it isn’t overly exciting, then I had a few…
