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…

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…

From Asia To Aus

I swapped my Copenhagen and Harare trips for a six day multisector to help out another crew member who needed to be in Copenhagen, in the hope it might get me some good karma! I wasn’t hugely fussed for the two trips and was happy to accept this trip to both Bangkok and Sydney. I…

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…

Perfect Phuket

A swap from Amsterdam to Phuket which I was very happy about! It had been over a year since I was last in Phuket, and I was looking forward to an easy and relaxing trip. A nice 5 hours and 50 minutes over to Phuket International Airport with just one service in economy. A busy…

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…

Fancy France

Finally it was back to work, but there were zero complaints from me as it was on to the beautiful destination of Nice in France! Another new place for me to visit. An early 08:40am departure out of Dubai with a pleasant 6 hours and 45 minutes over to Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport. With…

A Yearning For Yorkshire

It’s been such a long time since I’ve either worked a flight home, or gone home on days off. In fact it had been over 3 and a half months which is such a long time for myself. In my August roster I was given a flight to Glasgow, but I tried my luck on…

Average Adelaide

In my July Roster post I said how I had Singapore, not being a massive fan of Singapore I sent out a few swaps for new destinations and someone accepted for Adelaide which was a great way for me to also add to my flying hours that month! We departed out of Dubai at 02:05am…

Nature In Nairobi

I finally managed to head to Nairobi in Kenya which is a destination I had been wanting to visit for a while. We departed Dubai at 4pm and it was a nice 4 hours and 50 minutes over to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Quickly disembarking and driving over to the hotel we had arranged to…

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…
