After my flight to Stockholm I was rostered another new destination, in fact I was lucky enough to visit Zagreb twice in a row!
For my first flight there, the weather was absolutely perfect. Despite the chilly temperatures, the sun was shining and I was ready to explore. From our hotel it was a leisurely 15 minute walk into town, passing by many beautiful old buildings.
I spent the next couple of hours just strolling through the city, enjoying the beautiful sunshine.
I’ve recently ticked off another destination from my list – Stockhom, Sweden! I was excited to visit a new country, and after a nice and easy flight with 0 passengers in first class, we landed into Stockholm Arlanda airport in the evening.
As you can see, the views on the way over were pretty spectacular. I love seeing the snowy mountains and it makes me want to go skiing desperately!
A few days ago I was lucky enough to jet off to the beautiful city of Cape Town. I bid for the flight as it’s been a while since I last visited, and the beauty of South Africa never disappoints!
We had a great view of Table Mountain and the surrounding area on landing, and after arriving at the hotel early evening, it was time for me to call it a night. A few of the crew went out for steak and I was very tempted to join them, but 2 of the other girls and I had plans to get up early the next morning to hike Lion’s Head.
We were indeed up bright and early, and jumped in an Uber to the bottom of Lion’s Head, where there is a dedicated hiking trail up to the summit.
After our amazing few days in Rovaniemi, Lapland, it was time to explore a little bit more of Finland. We flew down to Helsinki, where Dad left us to go back to work, and Mum and I caught the train into the city centre.
It takes around 30 minutes to get into Helsinki from the airport, and we could see the huge snowflakes falling as we sped along the tracks.
Once we arrived, it was just a short walk to our hotel, but with so much fresh snow that hadn’t been cleared yet, it was quite a challenge dragging our suitcases along!
I’ve just got back from an amazing trip to snowy Lapland with my parents. I had some leave in January and with no plans in place, decided it was time to tick a new country off the list!
I flew from Dubai with Finnair (on standby), leaving at 6am and landing into Helsinki at just after 10am. Since I was only travelling with hand luggage, it was an easy connection to the next gate, where my parents, who had flown in from Heathrow the night before, were already waiting.
Soon we were on our way to Rovaniemi, which was around an hour by plane.
As you can see, it was pretty snowy!
