Brisk Brussels

I managed to swap my trip to Amsterdam for one to Brussels which would mean me also visiting country 56! We departed Dubai at 14:35 and it was 7 hours and 10 minutes over to Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Landing in the evening, we went over to the hotel to check in and I…

A Short But Sweet Ski Trip

I know I’ve ONLY just got back from leave, but those two flights clearly tired me out and it was time for me to go and crash my parents ski trip again. I was landing in the early hours from Frankfurt, so I had the whole of Saturday to catch a flight hopefully to either…

Final Festive Feels In Frankfurt

Mellow Milano

A trip I had been looking forward to since I saw it on my roster was a multi sector trip to Milan in Italy and New York in the US. It had been over 6 months since my last multi sector trip and I was excited to get out of Dubai for an extended period….
