When I got my roster last month and saw that I had a flight to Vienna coming up, I knew I was in for a treat. My school friend Iris sent me a message asking if I had any plans, and we soon made one, for her to come up and stay for 24 hours.

We try to catch up whenever possible, but it’s usually only once or twice a year, depending on how often I’m able to get back to Austria. She had taken the bus from her hometown Klagenfurt (where I also lived for 6 years) to come and meet me in Vienna, and was waiting in our hotel when I arrived from Dubai.

We immediately changed and got ready to head out into the city.

It was around a 30 minute stroll to the city centre, and it was so good to catch up as we walked!

The first half of this year has already sped by, and soon we’ll be in August!

I’ve been flying lots this month, but have been visiting lots of lovely destinations. Next month I got a couple of my bids, and am very happy with my roster. I’ll be heading off to:

  • PRG – Prague, Czech Republic
  • PRG – Prague, Czech Republic
  • NCE – Nice, France
  • Visa Renewal
  • NCE – Nice, France
  • CPT – Cape Town, South Africa
  • SYD – CHC – Sydney, Australia & Christchurch, New Zealand

I’m really happy I have two trips to Prague – the last time I visited was around 6 years ago when I was inter railing around Europe with my best friend Lucy. I’d love any tips for secret spots or must-visit areas of the city!

Nice was also was one of my bids, and I’ve only been there once so I’ll be making the most of my layovers. Perhaps I’ll be able to visit one of the nearby towns such as Monaco or Eze.

In between my two flights to Nice I have my visa renewal! It’s every 3 years, and although my official 6 year anniversary won’t be until December, it’s done a little bit in advance. How times flies!

Then it’s off to Cape Town, which is one of my favourites, although since it’s winter there it’ll probably be quite chilly!

Lastly for August I have another trip to Sydney and Christchurch, which I really enjoyed this time around.

Stay tuned as always on here if you enjoy following my trips around the world!

It had been a while since I’d visited Warsaw, and I was looking forward to my second ever trip there. (Especially as it was -12 degrees last time!)

The flight is nice and short from Dubai at around 5 hours, and we landed around midday ready to explore.

Some of the crew were going home and some had plans to watch the world cup, so I met up with one of the guys who had some friends there who would show us around.

We strolled into the city, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.

With a few days of leave in June and no plans, Joe and I made a last minute decision to visit my sister Lizzie and her boyfriend Jarett in Valencia, Spain, where they’ve been living for just under the past year. And what a great decision it was!

I didn’t really know much at all about Valencia, so left it up to Lizzie to plan whatever she fancied with us. She works from home, so was able to fit her work in around us and still manage to get out and about a lot, which was great.

We flew in to Madrid, and caught a quick flight across to Valencia with Iberia on standby (which was half the price of the train ticket!) and Lizzie came to meet us in the early evening.

It was a beautiful summer’s evening, and we walked back to her flat, admiring the pretty buildings and greenery along the way.

This month rosters came out a little earlier than usual, which was a nice surprise!

I got 2 of my bids, as well as a couple of other flights which I didn’t ask for.

Starting off the month is my trip to Brussels which rolls over from June, and then:

  • BOM – Bombay, India (turnaround)
  • SYDCHCSYD – Sydney, Australia & Christchurch, New Zealand
  • VIE – Vienna, Austria
  • STN – London Stansted, UK
  • (LHR – London Heathrow, UK) – Since changed to HKG – Hong Kong
  • STN – London Stansted, UK

As usual there’s one turnaround in there, fairly standard for every roster!

Then I have a 5 day multi-sector to Sydney and Christchurch which I’m actually quite looking forward to, as it’s been ages since I last visited Sydney and Christchurch will be a new destination for me!

After that I have a trip to Vienna – you may know I used to live in Austria (in a small town called Klagenfurt) for 6 years, so I will see if my brother or any of my Austrian friends are around to catch up there.

Then I have 3 trips to the UK! I did bid for Stansted, as it’s so close to home it’s now very easy for me to visit my family on the layover, although I didn’t bid for Heathrow so I will see if I’m able to swap that. Update – since writing this post I’ve swapped it for a Hong Kong, one of my favourites!

That’s it! Another month with a lot of flying, and a new destination on the other side of the world to visit!
