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

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…
