Please note: I was not there during the time of the incident, so these are simply my distant reactions. With Love, Kara My mind starts a sprint; ferociously running through anyone I know who could have been at Ft Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport on Friday morning.

AirBnB Experiences: Discover A Bee Apiary, Almond Farm, & Flying Escape (All-in-One)

I grew up on a farm in Central California. My parents, to this day, still live there. When my brother and I were younger, we didn’t know what TV or cement was, but we did know how to use a cotton trailer as a foam pit after harvest day, and jump off the roof of […]

You Will Never Be The Same: Thoughts On Travel, Masada, & Israel

I often find it hard to comprehend how it is that I have had the chance— in a short few years of being a flight attendant— to see places, not just once, but multiple times. It took London and I about fifty introductions before I fell in love. Copenhagen, Denmark was a constant in my […]

“Draw The Plane:” Unique Perspectives Of A Frequent Air Traveler In A Book

It’s possible that Joseph Mayernik has flown on more flights than I have. For 20 years, he has been capturing a story from the perspective of his airline seat— and subsequently the stories of flight attendants, other business travelers, and vacationers—by sketching what he sees.

Flings, Falling, & Fighting Time: The Way Of A Flight Attendant Relationship

I wish I knew when I would see you again. Do I matter to you? I think so, but I can’t tell with flight attendant life. Every moment feels so precious and so fleeting, because we move so fast.

“Everywhere I Roam Is Home:” Confessions Of A Modern Day Gypsy

I shuffled my feet against the sand as the gently rolling waves sidled up to the shore. A half-rainbow danced along the horizon—oreoed between high rise beach condos— as the sun skipped above the sea. This was Florida. For a minute, it felt like a miracle. For a moment, my stress vanished, and I melted […]

Instantly Book A ‘Home-Away-From-Home’ With Overnight App: How It Works

  A few weeks ago, I was in the San Francisco Bay area training with SKYacademy to become a SkyAngel.

1963 Threw Up Here

My pillbox hat teeters precariously as the caravan of precocious suitcases— large, medium, small, and hand-baggage size— swarm me like a hive of angry Africanized bees.
