Effectively, right here we once more with one other roster publish. Someway this yr is simply flying by and I’m barely discovering the time to replace my weblog, though I do miss writing right here! When you observe me on Instagram, you should have seen the place I went in June, as I solely had two flights after which went on go away.
- LAX – Los Angeles, USA
- IAD – Washington D.C., USA
- Annual Depart
Though I solely had two flights, they had been each lengthy ones to the US, which meant good flying hours (= good pay!) so I used to be blissful about that. Restrictions have began to lastly ease and we are actually allowed out on a few of our layovers, so while I solely made it so far as In-N-Out Burger on my journey to LA, in Washington I used to be in a position to get out and about for some a lot awaited exploring.
Masks guidelines have additionally relaxed within the US so it was a breath of contemporary air (actually!) not having to put on a masks in any respect. Clearly I’m absolutely vaccinated however this hasn’t actually meant a lot has modified in any respect in Dubai, we nonetheless need to put on masks always together with while open air – not so enjoyable within the 45°C warmth!
On my Washington layover we took a visit to the Nice Falls in Virginia, which was an superior time out. It felt so good to be again in nature and I beloved all the greenery. I’ll attempt to publish about that right here ASAP!
After I received again I had nearly 2 weeks go away – initially I had deliberate to affix my dad and mom on a visit to Scotland, nonetheless the UK remains to be not letting anybody in from the UAE with no 10 day resort quarantine. With that in thoughts, I attempted to seek out someplace that was straightforward to get to, had pretty relaxed restrictions, and settled on Croatia. I had 4 days on my own in Break up, after which my sister, brother and his girlfriend joined me for five days in Dubrovnik. It was simply beautiful, and we had one of the best time.
As for my July roster (don’t thoughts that we’re already midway by the month…!) I’m truly on reserve! It’s been some time since I had reserve and I used to be truly rostered a few flights immediately, so thus far it’s not been too dangerous.
- GRU – Sao Paulo, Brazil
- CAI – Cairo, Egypt (turnaround)
AMM – Amman, Jordan (turnaround)*eliminated*
- LAX – Los Angeles, USA
- BP – Enterprise Promotion Occasion
As quickly as I received again from my go away I used to be put straight onto a visit to Sao Paulo! It’s been years since I visited, and sadly this time we weren’t allowed to depart the resort, so it was a quiet layover with only a journey to the fitness center and a few good Brazilian steak for lunch. When you like, you possibly can examine my final journey right here.
As soon as I received again I had a few days off to get well (we’ve 2 necessary days off earlier than and after each extremely lengthy vary flight) and was then given a couple of flights. It’s fairly uncommon for that to occur on reserve month – normally you can be given a block of standby hours, throughout which you would possibly get given a flight, otherwise you would possibly get given one thing the day earlier than.
I had a turnaround to Cairo, which was one of many busiest and most hectic flights I’ve finished in years. After that I used to be alleged to have one other turnaround to Amman, nonetheless the plane modified and I used to be eliminated. Though it meant shedding flying hours I used to be blissful to have days off to ship a while at house in Dubai and put together myself mentally for an additional 16 hour flight!
Subsequent up was my journey to Los Angeles (the second in two months), which I’ve simply received again from. I noticed Jessica from Jessica’s Journey with Emirates go on a hike there lately, so I used to be decided to take advantage of being allowed out once more and do the identical. Fortunately there have been 3 different Brits on the flight (a rarity in itself!) who had been up for becoming a member of me, and we headed out to Runyon Canyon for a extremely nice hike. It was steep and rocky however so rewarding. It actually felt nice to be open air, doing one thing energetic and having fun with the beautiful climate.
My subsequent obligation is definitely a enterprise promotion occasion. It’s been pretty quiet for occasions lately, though I did take part within the Arabian Journey Market again in Could (a few of you’ll have seen me function on the official Emirates Instagram web page!). This one is a visit to the US to assist launch our newest vacation spot – Miami! I’m tremendous excited, though it’s actually the month of lengthy flights, with Sao Paulo, LA and now Miami! (All of them 14-16 hour flight time).
After that I’ve only a week left of reserve, so let’s see the place I’ll find yourself. I’m hoping for a flight to Europe as I received a style for the European summer season while on my go away in Croatia and I need extra!
That’s it for my roster, I hope you’ve loved seeing the place I’ve been the previous couple of months. As all the time, I publish rather more often on Instagram, so do head over there if you wish to keep updated!
