Why I Can’t Stop Missing Israel

I'm on an airplane, flying to a place that feels like home, one of my favorites: Copenhagen.  And yet, I can't stop thinking about another place.  Israel.  Maybe most women daydream about a lover or a potential, but most often, my thoughts are centered around traveling; between places I've been, places I want to go,...

How You Can Get Paid To Travel The World: Introducing Yonderbound

  What if you were paid to travel?  What if you had a way to explore the world and not only afford the journey, but also monetize it? Sounds wonderful right?  Sounds a little like how flight attendant life is and how, if you are Cabin Crew, you are paid to travel the world.  Sadly,...

How You Can Get Paid To Travel The World:  Introducing Yonderbound

  What if you were paid to travel?  What if you had a way to explore the world and not only afford the journey, but also monetize it? Sounds wonderful right?  Sounds a little like how flight attendant life is and how, if you are Cabin Crew, you are paid to travel the world.  Sadly, for flight attendants the pay is actually so little, many stews can’t even afford to...

#thefalifeINSPIRES:  Begin with your VISION

I once heard a quote that has truly stuck with me.  "Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others."  Personally, I wasn't always driven by a clear vision or flight path so to speak.  There was a time in my life when I wasn't sure where I was going or what I wanted.  I was complacent and was going through the motions of life.  I did have...

Overcoming Fear on My First Solo Trip to Paris

I am a believer in pushing yourself out of your comfort zone - after all, that's where all the magic happens. I've never had to use public transportation before. The first time I pushed myself to do it was in Ottawa, Canada on a work trip where I went solo in the freezing rain to go see the Parliament Buildings. I've been going back and forth on my decision to go...

Why you should spend your money on experiences and not things

I am not in a relationship. I don't have a car that's nice or even works very well.  I live out of suitcases.  Many times, home feels like the airplane.  I don't sleep much.  I sometimes wonder how I will pay rent or wistfully wish I was in a more lucrative career.  But, I would say that I am happy.  Very, very much so... Jumping on street trampolines in Copenhagen, Denmark so,...

From Little Planes To Mainline: How I Landed My Dream Job

Milestones: Making It Through Year One

  The sky is grey and the sun can't figure out whether to show herself or not. The bus bumps along, me with it. We are weaving our way through a morning that, honestly, looks like any other morning.   Except that I'm secretly grinning. No, actually, grinning for real.   Today is my one year anniversary of being a flight attendant.     I tug my threadbare skirt down...
