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...

“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...

The Magic Of Mexico: Escaping To Isla Blanca

Editor's note: this is a very personal confession of my life. It's not so much about flying, but on my own relationships, struggles, and uncertainties; which I guess—ultimately— is very much what this blog has always been about. I hope you enjoy what I feel is a rare form of my writing, especially as the...

What To Do While You Wait

You find yourself wondering what to do next with your life. You are currently hoping to get invited to that airline interview. Your on reserve, waiting around the crashpad for the call from scheduling. You date and date and date, looking for ‘your person’ with what seems to be no success. You send prayers to the universe or […]

Thank God I’m Flying Tonight…

“Thank God I’m going to Sweden tonight…” I thought to myself as the rhythmic rotations of my legs propelled me and my mint green bike with the pink basket through the muggy Florida air. Summer has certainly greeted Ft Lauderdale with its warm hello; my sticky tan skin shimmering under a hot morning sun. I want to […]

The One Type Of Wonder I Don’t Want

I swear flight attendants must think I’m crazy. I wouldn’t be surprised if the lead FA working the flight from Cancun to Ft Lauderdale this morning questioned why the only passenger in the very first row— a sunburned and tangled haired bleach blonde girl— was crying, and crying so much. Yeah. It was me crying so […]

Flight Attendant Tip: Just Remember ‘The Essentials’

“Where did you just fly in from?” the baggage agent said in response to my question of where my kite bag would turn up in the baggage claim area. “Ft Lauderdale,” I responded with assurance. “No—Where. Did. You. Fly. IN. From?” “Ft Lauderdale,” I repeated again, with sure conviction. I think I noticed an eye-roll […]

My Layovers Though…

Rachael and I giggled as we wandered beneath bright blue Scandinavian skies; past bright buildings and impeccably dressed Danish men. Impolitely—we stared with gaping mouths and eyes wide—at the beautiful species of humans that inhabit the city of Copenhagen. Gawd…the Danes though. [Insert love eye emoji here]. Rachael—a colleague and one of my favorite people, […]

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 […]
