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…

Viva Las Vegas

There’s the famous phrase of “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” so I’m not going to go too much into my 4 days in Vegas as there wasn’t so much sightseeing but more experiencing what Las Vegas has to offer. We flew with Interjet from Cancun to Las Vegas via Mexico City and landed…

The Grand Canyon

First stop of our trip was Las Vegas, but I’ll post on that later after I’ve discussed our day trip to Arizona to go and see the Grand Canyon, another wonder of the world! We had been looking online and speaking with the concierge about the best and most cost effective way to see the…

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,…

Swift Switzerland

Happy to be heading to a new destination and  it was a morning departure out of Dubai with 6 and a half hours over to Geneva Airport in Switzerland. Landing at lunchtime I changed quickly and decided to make my way into the city for a bit of sightseeing so that I wouldn’t waste too…
