Across To Abu Dhabi

I’ve only been to Abu Dhabi once since I moved to Dubai back in 2015 and it was to meet my uni friend Riki for lunch whilst he was on holiday. I really need to, but also want to explore more of the seven Emirates of the UAE, so with my mum in town, I…

A Day In Dubai to Sisters In Seminyak

It was finally time for my sister to arrive in Dubai before we headed away on holiday to Bali. She landed into Dubai at 8am on Wednesday morning and we spent a couple of days together in Dubai before I did a quick turn around to Iran and it was off away. Collecting her from…

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…

December 2016 Roster

After much anticipation and nerves of what the festive month and also my birthday month is going to bring, the December roster has finally arrived. I must have done some good deeds to get some good karma this month, or the rostering gods were looking down on me saying Jess deserves a good roster and…

How Does Reserve Work?

My reserve month is finally completed, and I cannot at all believe the luck I’ve had. Not one turn around. This is pretty much unheard of! So whoever was looking down on me in crew rostering, thank you, you’re gonna have some good karma. Anyway, I thought I would do a little post just to…

A Staycation In Dubai

It’s not often I write on Dubai, so as my Mum has just been to stay for 5 days, I thought I’d write a blog on what we got up to as Dubai itself is a great destination to visit. Both me and my mum landed around midnight into Dubai, myself from Dar Es Salaam…

Tranquil Tanzania

Departing Dubai at 10:40am, it was a short and easy 4 and a half hour flight over to Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania. With only one service, the flight went quickly and we had time to eat our food and decide what we were also going to do with our layover! Landing around 3pm local…

October 2016 Roster

Our rosters arrived early this month but this wasn’t that much of a great thing as I am on reserve for the whole of October… for those of you who don’t know what that means it basically means I am on standby. So each night at 6pm, I will check my roster and it will…

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…

Touristing In Toronto

I’m back from what hasn’t actually felt like work, but a mini vacation! We departed from Dubai at 9:50 with 13 hours 40 minutes over to Toronto Pearson International Airport. The flight over was super full and rather busy, however we still got a 2 and a half hour break where surprise surprise I did…
