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…

Brief Boston

A flight I’ve been bidding for, for over a year now, to see my friend Guya. And I’m more than happily pulled out for it at the back end of my reserve month. Happy happy days. Departing Dubai at 8:15am, it was 14 hours over to Boston Logan International Airport in the US. Landing just…

Popping To Paris

Another rostered flight for me which was a nice surprise. It had been such a long time since I’d last flown to Paris so I was excited to visit a city I’m so very fond of. Departing Dubai at 8:45am it was 6 hours and 55 minutes over to Charles De Gaulle International Airport. Landing…

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…

Inveigling Isla Mujeres

Continuing on our time in Cancun, we woke the next morning and headed for some breakfast before we took a taxi to the nearest harbour. Where we were headed in the direction of Isla Mujeres. Isla Mujeres is a small island 1,100km2 or 5 miles long just a short 30 minute boat ride from Cancun,…

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…
