Despite February being a short month, the roster gods have somehow managed to squeeze in all of the flights I asked for! It’s my “second top” bid, which means I have the second highest chance of getting what I request. Somehow I actually did!

It feels like it’s been such a long time since I got all of my bids that I actually can’t quite believe it. So next month I’ll be heading off to:

  • CPT – Cape Town, South Africa
  • BOM – Bombay, India (Turnaround)
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • ARN – Stockholm, Sweden
  • ZAG – Zagreb, Croatia
  • Service Refresher
  • ZAG – Zagreb, Croatia
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland

An exciting month ahead with 2 new destinations for me, Zagreb (which I’ll be visiting twice!) and Stockholm. I would love to hear any tips or interesting things to see or do in both places!

I haven’t been to Cape Town in a while, and as busy as the flight usually is, I know it’ll be worth it for the stunning destination. I’m hoping to hike up Lion’s Head or perhaps even Table Mountain – anybody have any suggestions?

As for Zurich, I’m sure you guys have seen that pop u on my roster fairly often. It’s an easy flight in first class, and a chance for me to relax and eat some good food!

The service refresher is something new that has only been going on for a couple of months, and should be a good way to refresh my knowledge on everything regarding our onboard service.

P.s. Follow me on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter for more day-to-day updates of where I am in the world! 🙂

I saw this 40-question cabin crew post going around on some blogs I followed years ago, when I was still reading up about how to pass the interview! Now I’d love to think my blog helps out anyone who’s looking for some tips on the recruitment 🙂

Good news for anyone who’s looking to join the company – recruitment will be starting again soon! We don’t have any more specific information or dates, but keep an eye out online. In the meantime, enjoy a few questions and answers from me.

1.Which airline is lucky enough to employ you? 

Emirates

2.What city(ies) are you based in? 

Dubai, UAE – the only base we have.

When I think of a holiday in paradise, Mauritius is one of the places that always springs to mind. Since we celebrated Christmas at home with my family last year, it was time to head to Mauritius this year, and Joe very kindly invited my parents to join us and his family for a relaxing getaway in the sun.

We touched down after a 6-hour flight through the night, having not managed to sleep much. I certainly couldn’t complain about these views though, even if I’m not a fan of being trapped in the window seat!

Even though Christmas is over now, I thought I’d show you a few pictures from my trip to New York. I bid for the flight in December specifically to see the beautiful Christmas lights, and although I only got rostered a 24 hour layover, I made sure to make the most of it!

The flight over takes around 14 hours, and we touched down after this beautiful sunrise, early in the morning.

As usual, there was plenty of traffic in New York, but since our hotel is right by Times Square, nobody minds the long drive from JFK airport.

Once we got to our rooms, I freshened up and got ready for the cold!

It was my second time to visit Taipei, and after a 7 hour flight we touched down in the evening, ready for some food!

Taipei being the birthplace of one of my favourite Asian dumpling restaurants, Din Tai Fung, we of course couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sample the original. There was a bit of a wait (around 30 minutes – although we passed by the next day and the wait was over 90 minutes!) but it was so worth it for all of the delicious food!

The next morning I was up bright and early to meet one of the girls from the flight to hike up Elephant Mountain.

Elephant Mountain is also known as Xiangshan in Chinese, and the name comes from the mountain’s elephant-like shape. Thanks to Taipei’s public transport system, it’s very easy to get there, and is just a ten minute walk through a park to the start of the hike.
