Continuing on from my previous post, my multi-sector African trip took me on to Dakar, Senegal. Now I’ll be the first to admit I really didn’t have a clue about what to see or do in either Guinea or Senegal, but luckily we managed to squeeze some sightseeing into our short 24 hour layover.
The first evening after arriving was spent at a gorgeous sea-front restaurant, just a few minutes walk from our hotel.
Out at the front of the restaurant was a really interesting wall which was full of African murals, as well as some awesome sculptures. We had a quick look before heading in for dinner, and amazingly almost every single one of the crew made it!
As I mentioned in my previous roster post, we all now get our rosters quite a bit earlier, which is lovely as it means you can plan the month ahead a bit more.
Although my bidding seniority is quite low in March, I’m pretty happy and quite pleasantly surprised with my roster for next month!
I’ll be heading off to:
- SEA – Seattle, USA
- HAM – Hamburg, Germany
- HKG – Hong Kong
- ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
- DOH – Doha, Qatar (Turnaround)
- CKY – DKR – Conakry, Guinea – Dakar, Senegal
I’m super excited to be heading back to Seattle, as I’ve only been once before and I loved the city. You can read about my previous trip here, and see what I got up to. Any tips for anything different to see or do this time would be much appreciated!
I’ve also been to Hamburg a few times before, and my old school friend Georg lives there, so if he’s not working hopefully we’ll be able to catch up.
As for Hong Kong and Zurich, if you read my blog regularly you’ll know that those are two destinations that I love and have flown to fairly often.
I’m also happy that I’ve finally got a new destination – it’ll be my first time visiting both Conakry and Dakar. We actually get 48 hours in Conakry so I should have plenty of time to explore, and then 24 hours in Dakar.
I also have another string of 5 days off, but so far I have no plans and might just take some time to relax in Dubai!
