Recent Layovers

Just a few snaps from my layovers in August - October!

Vienna, Austria
Trivandrum, India
Mahe Island, Seychelles
Chicago, Illinois
London, England
Budapest, Hungary

First stop, Vienna!  This city was so cool, it rained quite a bit but I was able to take the tram to the National Gallery, as well as check out a few spots around the hotel.

Incredible statues at the Kunsthistorisches Museum

Next I was off to Trivandrum, India.  This was the first time I had been there, and I was so pleasantly surprised.  I had some of the best aloo-gobi ever!

The beautiful black beaches of Trivandrum

Mahe Island in the Seychelles will always have a special place in my heart.  I love it here so much, I keep meaning to go on holiday but never seem to find the time!  One day!

North Beach, Mahe Island

I know the following are a bit blurry but I love them anyways.

I recently flew to Chicago for the first time and I have completely fallen in love with this city.  The architecture, art, shopping, and FOOD are incredible.  I cannot wait to go back!

I sat in front of the bean for at least an hour, and never managed to get a shot without someone standing directly in front of me, rude of them I know, but what to do.

I stopped by the Art Institue Chicago and saw some works by some of my favourite artists (Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, and many more).

I also got a cheeky little trim as my hair was getting way too long to wear down while working.

Quick little side trip to Harrods on my last London layover.

So L and I finally got to fly together after two and a half years of living here in Dubai!  The rostering gods smiled on us and we operated a Budapest flight .  We had such an incredible layover, learning how to make flower crowns, exploring the city, vintage shopping, and eating some delicious food.

Can I put this in my Vancouver apartment?

Embarrassing L any chance I can get.

We stumbled upon a wine/food festival in the middle of town.  So we had a little impromptu picnic on the steps of the cathedral

Budapest by night, such an incredible view from my room

School is ramping up a bit too fast for my liking, so I apologize in advance if I am a bit behind with any more blog posts.  In November I have flights to Singapore, Melbourne, Dar Es Salaam, and Melbourne again.  Hopefully I will get some good snaps while I am away and can keep you all updated!


Canadian Summer and Dubai "Winter"

This summer I took almost all of July off and went back to Canada to catch up with friends and family.  Having twenty three days off was amazing, and made me miss Canada so much when I had to go back to Dubai.

Once back in Dubai I went straight away back to flying.  I unfortunately got quite sick at the end of August, and having been dealing with some chronic migraine issues ever since, but I am slowly getting better!

Here are some (quite a few) snaps from summer in Canada, as well as some fun nights out in Dubai.

One of the few clear days I had!  
Completely forgot about forest fires and all the smoke that could come in.  

I met up with J and her family one weekend while I was at home, we also went to the Kangaroo farm in Lake Country.  We then headed into Kelowna for the night and met up with another high school friend for dinner.

 Can someone please buy me a miniature/baby goat?

I ate so much Earls food while in BC

Ninny has found his new favourite spot to nap

Apple Pie for days

My dentist has the greatest views

Mum and I went to the beautiful Monet exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery while we were in Van.  It was such a beautiful exhibit and I can't wait to see what they have next.

Every year there is a big party/dinner that is held for cabin crew here in Dubai.  A big group of friends and I went together and had such a fun night.

One of the sponsors of the night was Moet & Chandon,
so I obis had champagne for days.

I would lie and say this was the morning after, 
but lets be serious...
it was the late afternoon.

In true North American fashion, my friends and I decided to go all out for Halloween on both October 30th and 31st.

First night I was Captain Hook, and yes I actually took my stuffed crocodile to the bar with me.
Second night I was a Unicorn, I even made my tutu.  One of my absolute favourite costumes I have had in a while!

So on the night of the 30th...not everyone was dressed up.
As you can clearly see by the girls in the background of the photo.  
Their expressions were priceless and slightly mortifying. 

That wig was so hot, 
I couldn't wait to take it off at the end of the night!

Me and J

No idea who these guys are, but they were all wearing Unicorn Fan Club t-shirts, so clearly we needed a picture together.
