I woul really like to share some very nice photo with you. These were taken in the Garden Glow when I had my sister here, approximately 10 days ago. They claim that this one is the biggest park (in this theme) in the world, which is pretty impressive but not surprising, at least not in Dubai :).
They also have a dinosaur park which was also fun however I have never been much interested in dinos, so I was not too much impressed. But they were cool, they were moving and making sounds, it was quite realistic.
Where: Zabeel Park
When: From 4 pm, only during the winter months
How much: 60 dirhams

Hello again 🙂
During my last roster bidding, I asked for 5 days off in a row to be able to spend some time with my big sister. If you have been following me since the beginning, you should know that I’ve already had my twin sister here in last May and it was a great 5 days with her. This time with the other sis, we only had 4 full days and I wanted to make the most out of it.

January has been a quick and great month so far, if you are a cabin crew based a warm country you don’t suffer from “January depression”. My very first flight was Hamburg which started in December 2016 and ended on 1st January 2017. I was kinda in bad mood when I entered the briefing room – coming back from Christmas leave, getting back to “normal” (if there is such a thing with my lifestyle), so it was not the happiest moment for me. However the crew was really great (I’ve got lucky all the time recently) and the flight was not completely full, so all went great and I quickly found my good mood again. German people are very polite and lovely, one of the best passengers (at least for me) I would say.

I wanted to wait with posting my next roster, because I have been expecting some changes. I intended to (still do) swap some flight but I haven’t been able to do so, that’s why I post he original one and let’s see, it might gonna change. I am in Hamburg at the moment and I am gonna land around 02:30 am back in Dubai which means I celebrate new year at 36.000 feet in the sky :). The team is very amazing so I don’t mind. We were supposed to land like half an hour after midnight but there are some serious delays from Dubai which means our flight got also delayed with 2 hours. This is a very foggy season in Dubai, this is the reason behind.

Merry belated Christmas everybody! 🙂
I requested annual leave for Christmas long long time ago. It is extremely hard to get it as most cabin crew ask for the same date and would like to go home for the holiday. Once in a year, when we request leave, we can add an option which is “priority leave”. This one should enhance the chance to get those days. This is what I used and even though being fresh new that time, I’ve got Christmas leave! I was super happy and excited. Approximately 2 months ago I manage to add some extra days to my leave so after all, I’ve got 9 days in a row plus days off. I also used my first annual leave ticket (which is not standby but confirmed ticket) just to be 100% sure in everything.

The beginning of December had been quite busy for me, but since I am home, enjoying festive season with my family and friends, things got more chilled and relaxed. It means I could find some time for a quick catch up post :).
At the very beginning of the month I’ve got couple of days off which I used for studying for my upcoming exams. Obviously I didn’t kill myself with too much manual reading, I went out to the beach with my friend and the weather was so lovely. The name of this place is “Kite beach” and it is quite close to my area but we still had to take a taxi. This is a public beach it is pretty long and empty, I am so surprised why I haven’t came here before. Here is some pictures for you to enjoy.

As I mentioned in my previous post (which was released a long time ago, I know) I had a pretty adventurous journey back from Thailand. So the ferry left at 10:15 am so I left my tiny room like an hour before. I walked to the taxi meeting spot where they told me that for a single person taxi costs 400 baht, which is a ridiculous price for such a short drive. They said for 4 people it would cost 100 baht so I should wait for others. A couple showed up and we were waiting together but no one came – seemed all the tourists had their arranged drive from their accommodation. So we paid the money which was still too much but at least I didn’t have to pay it all by myself. The ferry left in time but the 2 hours long ride was hell – the sea was so angry, I got very seasick. The staff distributed plastic bags and when I took one, the girl sitting next to me started looking for something in her bag. Suddenly she got seasickness pill and offered to me. It was a nice gesture and however I didn’t really get better (during the whole way I kept my eyes closed and I was listening some music to occupy my mind) at least I didn’t throw up.
