June & July Roster | The Dubai Diaries

Effectively, right here we once more with one other roster put up. By some means this yr is simply flying by and I’m barely discovering the time to replace my weblog, though I do miss writing right here! For those who comply with me on Instagram, you should have seen the place I went in June, as I solely had two flights after which went on depart.

  • LAX – Los Angeles, USA
  • IAD – Washington D.C., USA
  • Annual Depart

Though I solely had two flights, they have been each lengthy ones to the US, which meant good flying hours (= good pay!) so I used to be joyful about that. Restrictions have began to lastly ease and we at the moment are allowed out on a few of our layovers, so while I solely made it so far as In-N-Out Burger on my journey to LA, in Washington I used to be capable of get out and about for some a lot awaited exploring. 

Masks guidelines have additionally relaxed within the US so it was a breath of contemporary air (actually!) not having to put on a masks in any respect. Clearly I’m absolutely vaccinated however this hasn’t actually meant a lot has modified in any respect in Dubai, we nonetheless should put on masks always together with while outdoor – not so enjoyable within the 45°C warmth! 

On my Washington layover we took a visit to the Nice Falls in Virginia, which was an superior day trip. It felt so good to be again in nature and I cherished the entire greenery. I’ll attempt to put up about that right here ASAP!

After I acquired again I had nearly 2 weeks depart – initially I had deliberate to hitch my mother and father on a visit to Scotland, nonetheless the UK remains to be not letting anybody in from the UAE with no 10 day lodge quarantine. With that in thoughts, I attempted to search out someplace that was simple to get to, had pretty relaxed restrictions, and settled on Croatia. I had 4 days on my own in Cut up, after which my sister, brother and his girlfriend joined me for five days in Dubrovnik. It was simply attractive, and we had the most effective time. 

As for my July roster (don’t thoughts that we’re already midway by means of the month…!) I’m truly on reserve! It’s been some time since I had reserve and I used to be truly rostered a few flights immediately, so to date it’s not been too dangerous.

  • GRU – Sao Paulo, Brazil
  • CAI – Cairo, Egypt (turnaround)
  • AMM – Amman, Jordan (turnaround) *eliminated*
  • LAX – Los Angeles, USA
  • BP – Enterprise Promotion Occasion
  • Reserve

As quickly as I acquired again from my depart I used to be put straight onto a visit to Sao Paulo! It’s been years since I visited, and sadly this time we weren’t allowed to go away the lodge, so it was a quiet layover with only a journey to the health club and a few good Brazilian steak for lunch. For those who like, you may examine my final journey right here

As soon as I acquired again I had a few days off to get well (we’ve 2 obligatory days off earlier than and after each extremely lengthy vary flight) and was then given a number of flights. It’s fairly uncommon for that to occur on reserve month – normally you can be given a block of standby hours, throughout which you would possibly get given a flight, otherwise you would possibly get given one thing the day earlier than. 

I had a turnaround to Cairo, which was one of many busiest and most hectic flights I’ve carried out in years. After that I used to be imagined to have one other turnaround to Amman, nonetheless the plane modified and I used to be eliminated. Though it meant shedding flying hours I used to be joyful to have days off to ship a while at house in Dubai and put together myself mentally for one more 16 hour flight!

Subsequent up was my journey to Los Angeles (the second in two months), which I’ve simply acquired again from. I noticed Jessica from Jessica’s Journey with Emirates go on a hike there not too long ago, so I used to be decided to profit from being allowed out once more and do the identical. Fortunately there have been 3 different Brits on the flight (a rarity in itself!) who have been up for becoming a member of me, and we headed out to Runyon Canyon for a very nice hike. It was steep and rocky however so rewarding. It actually felt nice to be outdoor, doing one thing energetic and having fun with the attractive climate.

My subsequent obligation is definitely a enterprise promotion occasion. It’s been pretty quiet for occasions not too long ago, though I did take part within the Arabian Journey Market again in Might (a few of you could have seen me function on the official Emirates Instagram web page!). This one is a visit to the US to assist launch our newest vacation spot – Miami! I’m tremendous excited, though it’s definitely the month of lengthy flights, with Sao Paulo, LA and now Miami! (All of them 14-16 hour flight time).

After that I’ve only a week left of reserve, so let’s see the place I’ll find yourself. I’m hoping for a flight to Europe as I acquired a style for the European summer time while on my depart in Croatia and I would like extra!

That’s it for my roster, I hope you’ve loved seeing the place I’ve been the previous couple of months. As at all times, I put up far more incessantly on Instagram, so do head over there if you wish to keep updated!
