One Year As Cabin Crew

Well I’ve actually technically been crew for 10 1/2 months, but it has been a year since I started training and became cabin crew. I still can’t quite believe that I have been working for as crew for a year now, it’s been a crazy year full of emotion and adventure, I’ve had my ups and downs but I wouldn’t change a thing! – Actually that is a lie there are a few things that I would like to change, but I want to keep this a positive place so I won’t go into it here 🙂 – In one short year I have made new friends, travelled to more places than I could have ever dreamt of, tasted weird and wonderful food, experienced different cultures and I’ve also learnt more about myself as a person.

Singapore & Sydney: Singapore part 2

Time for the final part of my 9 day SIN/SYD trip 🙂 I must admit that by the time we where flying back to Singapore I was starting to feel very tired, I think I underestimated how tired I was going to be!

We arrived at the hotel around 9PM, a few of the crew arranged to go for drinks and food but I was exhausted and pretty much fell asleep as soon as I got to my room. I slept until 1AMish, when I was woken by my rumbling stomach so I headed to the McDonald’s (up until this trip I have managed to avoid going to McDonald’s, on this trip I managed a total of 3 visits eek!) around the corner where I bumped into another crew member so we chatted for a while before I called it a night and went back to bed.

Day 1

I woke up the next morning feeling refreshed after a good nights sleep, I made sure to slap on plenty of factor 50 and then headed out in search of breakfast before a day of sightseeing. I was torn between going to the botanic gardens or Chinatown, I went with Chinatown as I wanted to visit the temples.

Singapore & Sydney: Sydney

Day 1

We arrived in Sydney at about 6AM, I didn’t want to waste a moment of the time I had there, so after arranging to meet up with one of the girls I showered and changed, then chilled for a while before heading out to explore. Some of the crew had mentioned that a really nice thing to do in Sydney was to have a champagne breakfast at one of the many restaurants and cafes, so we set off to find somewhere!

Singapore & Sydney: Singapore part 1

I am going to split my SIN/SYD trip up into separate posts, it would be far too long not to! So up first is my first visit to Singapore, hope you enjoy 🙂

Landing Day

The flight to Singapore from LHR was probably one of the most difficult and tiring that I’ve done, so when we arrived I quickly showered and changed before meeting up with some of the cabin and flight crew for some well-earned drinks and Chinese food.
