When I drive past Schiphol in the early morning, or late at night after Miss World, and see the illuminated runways, I still feel those butterflies in my stomach. Schiphol is a magical place that I have admired since my childhood. A gateway to new adventures and special stories, I always wanted to be a part of that. As cliché as it may sound, “the sky is my home”. From an early age I already felt an enormous connection with aviation. And who follows his/her heart often gets where he/she belongs. [Read more…]
Welcome to my first layover diary and my second Stewardess post! As I have told in my other post, my work is my passion and I like to share some nice things about it.

I had 5 days off at work as a flight attendant and once again I wanted to take the opportunity to travel.
One of my friends was working abroad again for a couple of months so I decided to plan a mini trip on my own to visit her at Palma de Mallorca – so technically this is, just like my trip to Lanzarote to that same friend, not a completely solo trip. [Read more…]
