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…

Ancient Athens

A new destination for myself, I’ve visited a couple of the Greek islands (Santorini and Zakinthos) a few years back, but I’d never actually been the the main land itself. We were embarking on a six day trip to both Athens and New York and I was happy to be escaping the heat of the…

Across To Abu Dhabi

I’ve only been to Abu Dhabi once since I moved to Dubai back in 2015 and it was to meet my uni friend Riki for lunch whilst he was on holiday. I really need to, but also want to explore more of the seven Emirates of the UAE, so with my mum in town, 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…

May 2018 Roster

We were delayed with receiving our May rosters this month, but as I was busy with guests, for the first time in forever I didn’t even notice! However it’s my second top bid month so I was holding out for something good, and I can’t complain really! So in May I shall be heading to……

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…

Heading To Hong Kong

Apologies once more on the silence on the blog, what is it about the festive period that just makes everyone so busy!? Anyway, since my last post I flew to Houston where for the first time in a very long time I did nothing with my layover. The crew weren’t bothered for very much and…

Stopping Off In Singapore

The last stop of our Balinese adventure was to Kuta and we made our way over to the makeshift boat terminal on the beach which was just absolutely packed out with tourists. I couldn’t believe how many people were pulling in and out of here each day. As we pulled back into Padang Bai from…

Going To Gili T

The final stop of our Indonesian adventure was to a different island of Gili Trawangan just east of Bali, and out of the three Gili Islands more known for being a party island. We left our beautiful accommodation in Ubud and drove over to Padang Bai where we would take a fast boat over to…

A Day In Dubai to Sisters In Seminyak

It was finally time for my sister to arrive in Dubai before we headed away on holiday to Bali. She landed into Dubai at 8am on Wednesday morning and we spent a couple of days together in Dubai before I did a quick turn around to Iran and it was off away. Collecting her from…

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…
