Singapore Pt 1: Rain and Flowers

I was over the moon to be rostered another trip to SIN and SYD recently, for those of you who don’t know it is a 9 day trip which consists of 2 nights in SIN, 1 night in SYD and another 2 nights in SIN. It is the most popular trip and is most crews top bid. As with my previous SIN/SYD posts, which you can read about here, here and here, I will split the trip into three separate posts to make it easier to read 🙂

The flight out to Singapore was pretty easy and straightforward, the only issue for me was the fact it is so long and feeling bored/tired while waiting to go on second break!

Day 1

As with any long trip a Whatsapp group was set up, quite a few suggested going to Sentosa. I’ve already been to Sentosa before and while I wasn’t really too fussed about going back, I think my brain was too tired to function and I couldn’t think of anything else to do (despite making a list with at least 6 or 7 things I wanted to do in Singapore before I left home!!) so I said I would go too lol!

May’s Roster

Here is where I will be jetting off to in May, no new destinations (hopefully that will change if a swap goes though though!) but I am happy to be going back to JNB for some relaxing in the sun 🙂

  • JNB x 2
  • AUH
  • BLL

I am really looking forward to my JNB trips, I have worked with quite a lot of the crew before so I will hopefully have 2 great trips to look forward too.

I’m not too bothered if I go back to AUH, although I would like to swap it for somewhere else.

I will be putting in for unpaid leave for the BLL, the report is super early which means I have to stay in a hotel the night before and the duty isn’t long, so financially I am losing rather than gaining. I really hope I can get it off!!

I also have some annual leave, but I don’t have any plans yet.

I just did the most amazing SIN/SYD trip, so I will post about it ASAP 🙂

Philadelphia: The City Of Brotherly Love

Philly was one of the destinations that I would bid for every month, but I would never get. It was really frustrating because it seemed like everyone I knew was getting a trip apart from me. Since January however, I have been rostered 3 in the space of about 6 weeks! I’m just going to combine what I did into the one post because, I didn’t really do enough on each individual trip to justify writing separate posts. Hope you enjoy!

Welcome to Miami ~Bienvenido a Miami~

I’ve been to Miami twice since we got the route back on my fleet, considering it’s a place I wasn’t too fussed about going to I had a lovely time each visit especially as both where team trips so I had some familiar faces.

On my first trip to Miami I went on a boat tour of the houses of the rich and famous, it was a nice relaxed way to spend an hour or two. I got major home envy, if I ever win the lottery (hard seeing as I don’t play it lol) I would definitely buy myself a house here as it is gorgeous!

Long Time No Blog!

Well hello there, it’s been a while hasn’t it!? I’ve not really felt the urge to write any posts due to a variety of reasons: high hours so no trips, loooot’s of time off so no trips and a general lack of inspiration. If I’m being honest I found myself getting bored, it felt like I was just going to the same places over and over 😦 Thankfully I am now trained on the B787 😀 I think all crew want to get trained on it, but it is especially true for those of us on the A380 as going to the same 2 destinations can get ever so slightly boring no matter how nice the JNB hotel is!

I think if I’m being completely honest, another reason I haven’t been posting is because I have never 100% felt comfortable about the fact that I name my employer on my blog. I am anonymous and I’ve never posted anything ‘bad’, but there is always a part of me that feels super paranoid lol! Like I’m going to get called into a meeting to discuss a post I wrote about  Vancouver or something! I think for that reason, I am going to remove all reference to my employer, it will no doubt affect my views and stats but so be it 🙂

I got given a great roster for April, I am very fortunate to be going on another SIN/SYD trip I am so excited and can’t wait! I also have 2 new destinations in Baltimore and Toronto, I am super excited about Toronto and while I’m not as excited by Baltimore I’m sure I’ll find something to do. I feel like I have finally perfected my bids these past 3/4 months, I’ve found that not bidding for specific destinations has really worked for me.

I’ve got quite a few pics on my phone from places I’ve been since I last posted, so when I have a chance I’ll look through them and see if I can get a few posts up 🙂

Bye for now
