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!

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? 


2.What city(ies) are you based in? 

Dubai, UAE – the only base we have.

First of all I’d like to apologise for how quiet it’s been over here on The Dubai Diaries for the past few weeks – I’ve just finished sitting my yearly exams so I was out of action studying for a while!

After my 2 trips to Hanoi it was time to explore another part of Vietnam – Ho Chi Minh City, also known by the locals as Saigon.

We arrived after a fairly quiet night flight and although this time the layover was only 24 hours, I was still eager to fit in as much as possible. There’s a huge street food market around a 10 minute drive away, so a few of us jumped in a taxi to sample some local food for dinner, which was delicious. I’m converted to Vietnamese food after a month of flights there!

The next morning we were up bright and early to head to the Mekong Delta.

It was around a 2 hour drive, and we had a quick stop at a rest stop along the way – similar to the stop we’d had in Hanoi on the way to Trang An, very touristy! At least this one had some pretty gardens 😉

For my first trip to Hanoi I was eager to see as much of the city, and surrounding countryside, as possible. After a lovely quiet flight, we arrived at the hotel just after lunchtime, and agreed to meet in a couple of hours to tick off our first item on the itinerary – a street food tour!

There are plenty of companies that come up if you google “Hanoi street food tour”, and one of the girls on the flight had already contacted one to arrange our tour. We took an uber into the city (our crew hotel is around a 40 minute drive away) to meet with our local guide, Hannah.

We started at Hoan Kiem Lake, which is a central point of the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Since it was a weekend, all of the surrounding roads were blocked off for cars and were pedestrian-only, which was great.

Our first stop on the tour was a little bit of a walk from the lake, but this was the perfect chance to get a feel for the city. It was very busy and it felt like everyone was out enjoying the evening!
