July 2018 Roster

Rosters came early due to the way Eid fell within the month. So for all those celebrating I hope you had a wonderful Ramadan throughout the holy month, and Eid Mubarak to you all. Anyway, in the month of July I’ve been rostered for… CMN – Casablanca, Morocco Layover WAW – Warsaw, Poland Layover Reserve…

Swift Switzerland

Happy to be heading to a new destination and  it was a morning departure out of Dubai with 6 and a half hours over to Geneva Airport in Switzerland. Landing at lunchtime I changed quickly and decided to make my way into the city for a bit of sightseeing so that I wouldn’t waste too…

Ancient Athens

A new destination for myself, I’ve visited a couple of the Greek islands (Santorini and Zakinthos) a few years back, but I’d never actually been the the main land itself. We were embarking on a six day trip to both Athens and New York and I was happy to be escaping the heat of the…

Mild Malta

Looking forward to this trip with work, I was eager to head to Malta to tick off country number 63! Quite a long day at work though as we go via Larnaca in Cyprus where we’re on ground for an hour and a half before complete the next sector to Malta. We departed Dubai at…

Meandering Through Myanmar

Another new country to tick off, and it would be Myanmar that marks number 62 on my list. A 9am departure out of Dubai, it was a lovely and easy 4 hours and 50 minutes into Yangon International Airport. With just one service and time to squeeze in a trip to the flight deck and…

Beatific Bruges

I’ve had a bit of a shambles with my April roster and has resulted in me having many a turn around in between two different sets of friends visiting. Even though I tried all I can with live leave and swaps, I had to leave my friends in Dubai for a couple days whilst I…

Nonchalant Norway

Headed to work and beyond ready to tick off country 61! An early morning departure out of Dubai International Airport at 7:45am and just 7 hours and 10 minutes stood between me and Oslo, Norway. Landing just after lunch time we went across to the hotel and I had agreed to meet 4 other crew…

Cultural Clark

It was a short flight over from Cebu to Clark at just 1 hour and 10 minutes. We actually arrived late to the hotel which ate into our layover time a little bit too. But after checking in, we changed quickly and arranged to meet downstairs to organise our trip for the next day and…

Offshore In Oslob

It was an early morning departure out of Dubai at 2:45am with 8 and a half hours over to Mactan-Cebu International Airport. Landing in the early afternoon, we swapped over the aircraft with the transit stop crew and made our way over to the hotel. With it being a friday afternoon the traffic was absolute…

Teachings In Thailand

I managed to swap my flight to Manila for one to Bangkok. I’ve visited Bangkok twice before but the last time I was there was way back in March 2016 when I was still in my probationary period with work! So when someone offered me this trip I couldn’t snap it up quick enough, as…

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…
