I’ve been to Vancouver 4 times now, and I have another trip coming up! The first thing you notice on the drive from the airport to the hotel is the scenery, it is absolutely breathtaking! I don’t really want to bore you with lot’s of posts about the same place, so this is a summary. Plus on 2 of the 4 trips it rained quite heavily so I didn’t really do much on them.
Here is where I will be flying to in August!

This months roster is great in that apart from the early report for my Prague I don’t have any early starts. I would have been happier if I had got either the Shanghai or Philadelphia I’d bid for, but oh well there’s always next month. I’m going to either ask for unpaid leave for the Prague or see if I can swap it for an available day as I have 2 available days after it and it will make it easier for me to get a long haul trip. I don’t have any standby which is great too!
I’ve just came back from Chicago, I can easily say that it is my favourite US city that I have visited since I started flying. The hotel is in pretty much the perfect location, near to lots of restaurants and things to do. Most of the hotels that we stay in whilst in the States are miles away from anything even remotely interesting and the highlight of your trip is a visit to the mall or Walmart.
Again I had another great crew, I’m on a roll lately with amazing crew’s 🙂 We got to the hotel quite late at about 9pm-ish, after a quick shower and change of clothes I headed down to the hotel bar to meet some of the crew for a well-earned cocktail. Continue reading
I can’t believe that I got rostered 2 trips to Tokyo last month, I managed to get 3 in total in 6 months! Oh well, I think it’s karma for scheduling never giving me a SIN/SYD which some people get ALL the time 😀
I was lucky to have a great team on both my trips, it would have been horrible to have gone to a place as wonderful and interesting as Tokyo with a boring or horrible crew!
