Whilst still on reserve I was pulled out for a trip to Casablanca, Morocco. I’ve been in the past and visited the incredible Hassan II Mosque, the largest mosque in Morocco, as well as the corniche by the ocean, and Rick’s Café, famous from the movie “Casablanca”. This time I decided to take it easy and just head for a stroll through the souk.
From my hotel room I had an incredible view over the city, including the Hassan II Mosque which is unmissable.
If you’re heading to Casablanca for the first time, I’d definitely recommend a trip there. The architecture is stunning, with lots of detailed tiling and doorways.
Myself and one of the other girls met after a quick power nap (I’d be on home standby waiting for the phone to ring all night, and then had an almost 8 hour flight, so was feeling rather tired!) to stroll down to the nearby souk.
It seems like I only just pressed publish on my May roster, but here we are again with another roster post!
I’m currently on reserve, as mentioned in my May roster post, and so far I’ve been given a flight to Milan and a flight to London, as well as a quick overnight turnaround to Jeddah and back. I’ve still got quite a way to go so stay tuned on here and my Instagram, where I post more day-to-day updates, to see where else I end up this month!
I’ll be finishing my reserve around the 11th of June, and after that I’ll be heading to:
- NBO – Nairobi, Kenya (turnaround)
- LNE – HRE – Lusaka, Zambia & Harare, Zimbabwe
- LHR – London Heathrow, UK
- BCN – Barcelona, Spain
After my turnaround to Nairobi I have a string of 5 days off, so hope to head on a mini getaway somewhere warm with my girlfriends!
The LNE – HRE trip is one I haven’t done before. We fly to Lusaka, have a quick stop on ground, then on to Harare where we have a 24 hour layover. So if you have any tips or suggestions for what to do and see in 24 hours in Harare, please let me know.
Then it’s on to London, and after that one of my favourites, Barcelona, where I hope to top up my tan on the beach! In the meantime, let’s hope for some nice flights on my reserve 🙂

When I saw that I had two days off that coincided perfectly with my boyfriend’s flight to Bologna, I knew I had to escape the heat of Dubai and come with him on the flight. I booked my ticket less than 2 hours before departure, packed a few things and headed off to the airport. Talk about last minute decisions!
The flight is around 6 hours, and I was well taken care of by the crew, so arrived into Bologna ready to do some exploring.
Since Joe was working the flight, we went to the crew hotel which was a short drive from the airport. From there it was a quick bus journey to the main train station where we purchased our tickets (which I have to say were fairly pricey!) to Florence. It’s a quick 34 minute train ride, if you take the express train with no stops.
Before we knew it, we were stepping out into the beautiful sunny streets of Firenze!
If you saw my roster post from last month, you would know that I was rostered a trip to Milan. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Milan, and you can read about my trip there and to Lake Como by clicking here.
This time, I wanted to head back to the city, and since we arrived in the evening, my plan was to get up early before the rest of the tourists.
First things first though, dinner! After arriving at our hotel and a quick freshen up, most of the crew met down in the lobby to head to dinner. The hotel has an arrangement with a gorgeous family-run restaurant called Osteria Della Pista, so they came and picked us up in a mini van, and after a short drive we arrived at the restaurant.
Italian food is definitely one of my favourites – just ask my mum! Whenever I go home, the only meal I always request is spaghetti bolognese 😉 And when in Italy there’s no point in denying yourself from trying all of the yummy pizza, pasta and gelato.
So of course this time it was no different, and I had the most delicious prosciutto and rocket pizza, served with an aperol spritz, and followed by homemade tiramisu, of course!
This post is going to be short and sweet as I don’t have many flights in May….so far! I’ll be starting off the month with a flight to Milan (which is technically still in my April roster) and then after a couple of days off I’ll be heading to LAX – Los Angeles.
After that…..reserve! So far I’ve only had reserve once in the 4,5 years I’ve been flying, and considering we’re supposed to have it every 7 months, I’ve been quite lucky. So please keep your fingers crossed for me that I’ll get some nice flights and not have to work in economy on my reserve month 😉
It’s been a while since I’ve been to LA so any tips or suggestions will be much appreciated! 🙂
Hope you all have a great week, and as always, thanks for reading!
