It is about time for an update, since I have not posted anything for a month. This month has not been very exciting, because I have not had many layovers. My flight to Jakarta was the worst flight I have ever done, but I do not think I will be aloud to write about this on my website. However, my layover in Frankfurt was amazing and I ate delicious currywurst at the Christmas market.Read More
Long time, no post! I wanted to write about my 56 hour stay in Sydney but I forgot my camera when I went on leave in the Netherlands for the past one and a half week. Since a post without pictures is a bit boring, I decided to wait until I got back to Abu Dhabi. I also got my new roster and I was really disappointed so I really wanted to set my mind of flying during my leave.
Good things first, I had an amazing time during my layover in Sydney. Even though, the flight is really long (14 hours), it feels shorter than an 8 or 9 hour flight because you have a rest in which you can sleep.Read More
My layover in Nairobi was a very short 22 hours and I have not been able to see much of it. It was already midday when we arrived in Nairobi after a short flight (4,5 hours). I walked around the city for a bit but after two hours I already went back to the hotel and had a drink there. I did go to a good viewing point of the city and took some pictures there. The next morning, I was planning to do a safari but the rest of the crew was not interested and going alone meant I would have to pay 160 US dollars for just 3 hours of safari.Read More
My layover in Hong Kong has been so awesome. We arrived in Hong Kong at 10 am after a long night flight of almost eight hours. My plan was to go out immediately but of course I overestimated myself again and I went to the hotel room to sleep for one hour. The layover was a little more than 30 hours and I decided to go to downtown on the first day, which took me 1,5 hours from the hotel. My first stop was Victoria’s peak, where I could see a stunning view of the Hong Kong skyline (see pictures).Read More
In one week I have gone from cold autumn in Dublin, to a desert safari in Abu Dhabi, to eventually end up in a place where part of my roots are: Indonesia.
After a long but easy flight of a little more than 8 hours I arrived in Dublin in the morning. I was so excited to be back in Europe and I knew I had only 24 hours to explore the city. I was able to take the bus instead of the taxi to the city center, which was nice and cheap for a change.Read More
