So Lonely Lately

This post is dedicated to someone who I love very much, who is like a little sister to me and who understands this life all too well. This is for the girl who feels fly life's subtle sting sometimes. When hearing the click-click of the hotel room door is not comforting, but in fact isolating. In...

Make Packing And Organizing Your Flight Attendant Bag Quick And Easy

There are just some things about travel and flight attendant life that I don't think I will EVER love. Like lavatories. Or jet lag. Or delays. Or creepy pilots. Or... Packing and unpacking. And packing and repacking. I feel like, at some point, I would get good at the process, but it always seems that...

I Want You To Stay: An Open Letter To The Runaway Flight Attendant

Faster. Farther away. Run. Fly. Go. I push my foot down on the accelerator and drive off. I push my car up to the speed limit and then just over the limit, daring somebody to stop me. The sky is dark and the clouds gather as I get on the highway, taking me away from home....

“Stay Here. Stay Spontaneous.” Introducing Overnight: The App

My friend Chris—who owns a couple of hostels in Zadar—said it best in regards to the city of Ljubljana. “I don’t like using this word to describe places,” he mused. “But it truly fits. It [Ljubljana] is just so cute.” He got it so right. Ljubljana, the largest city in Slovenia, is just that; stunningly...

I Wish I Could Bid…

“Ohhhh, I love OWS!” the text from Griffin read. Griffin was referring to the cable wakeboard park in Orlando that I had just tried out while on my layover. He wanted to go with me next time—but thing is—I didn’t know ‘the next time.’  I was thrilled at the thought of hanging out with him. […]

Dizzy: Unedited & Uncensored

You know when you are a little kid and your older brother says, “Hey lil’ Sis! You sit on this chair, turn your head sideways, and I’ll spin you around for awhile and then you stand up. That will be fun!” As little sister, you agree, because Big Brother knows all the fun things to […]

I Like It Here.

A contented smirk subtly spreads across my sunburnt skin as I move my board and kite bag from my bed to the corner of the room. The jostle jolts some sand that snuck inside, creating mini sand castles on the hippy looking blanket that covers the twin sized bed. I’m supposed to be creating castles […]

I Love You, But I’m Leaving…

“Ahhhh man,” he said as he leaned in to kiss me. “I wish you weren’t leaving tonight.” I smiled as I stared back into the bright sparkle of his crystal blue eyes. I genuinely meant it when I responded with a, “Me too.” It’s not that I was going to miss him. We had only […]

I’m sorry I haven’t written in so long, everyone! I have been coasting through mainline life and trying to stay under the radar while working my booty off! I hope you enjoy.— Meghan   Not many people are aware that I’ve always been New York City based and are even less aware that I’ve been […]

Why We Do What We Do

Last Thursday, I was in Dallas, Texas. After we arrived at the hotel, we had less than 24 hours before I would fly back to London. A short layover compared to some other destinations. Sometimes, we get two full days or even two nights. After diner and drinks with the rest of the crew last […]

Editor’s Note: A few months ago, Louise— a shoe designer and former cabin crew (for 17 years) contacted me, which has since resulted in a wonderful correspondence with this talented and dynamic woman. I, always the entrepreneur and curious inquirer, wanted to know how one goes from ‘Flight Attendant Life’ into something related, but completely […]

Crashpad Life: “Who is coming home?”

Scattered— well, I suppose the more appropriate term is ‘sprawled’—across my bed is my kiteboard bag. A lone rash guard peeks out from a pocket. There’s a suitcase by the wall, one in the closet, dirty laundry stuffed in the corner, and shoes hidden underneath the twin size cot. Kiteboard gear does not belong in […]

The Unexpected Ways My Life Changed Since Flying International

It’s been almost two years since I left my first airline; a domestic, budget carrier that operated turn flights on single-aisle aircrafts. As soon as I went to International—with the fancy uniform and (some say adorable, some say horrible) hat— most thought that I was making a strategic career advancement. I would have better pay […]
