Basically I have two days off before Milan. I got in from a multi sector flight last night completely exhausted, turned my phone on and my friend asks if I want to go to Copenhagen for the day. So here I am with my cabin bag, a cup of coffee, and my camera!! I think we are going to rent a car and go to a town called Skagen to see where the two oceans meet! Any tips on what to see, what to do in 24 hours are totally welcomed!!!!
I’ve also decided that I am going to start trying to post more on this blog about fashion and I will be opening a new blog about traveling :)
Hope to see you all there soon!!

So the official tumblr of VisitBritain Blogged my photo. Wow? Thanks so much to losthitsu for letting me know this was here!!!
I went to the floating market in Bangkok during my last layover and was really curious about why the pineapples had stalks. So I googled how do pineapples grow.
In the country I am currently in the clock has changed and a new day is upon us. A decade and I thought have I become that much older? When that changed to eleven I thought have I become wiser? Suddenly thirteen years are upon us and I wonder if I have just built a fort around the sorrow and adapted. This year feels quieter, more tense. It could be that I’m in the skies now so I feel it more keenly but the air is different and I’m waiting for September to be over. We seem to teeter on the precipice of yet more change. So I wonder this year have we become wiser or just older and set in our ways?
I will smile at the sun, thank The Lord for the ones I love. I will go into the briefing room, and I will fly out of Dubai with love in my heart. There may be quiet tears shed but I will do my best to do what we Americans have always done, to carry on, and never let the flame of memory burn out.
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence… —And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod, the high untrespassed sanctity of space,- Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.”
We are the stars in the night sky you look out at your windows and wish upon. We jet from one continent to another carrying the lives of hundreds of people. We carry their hopes, their dreams, their tears, and their smiles. We know they are more than their seat number. We raise each other up when times are hard and we offer comfort to strangers and accept their struggles. We listen, and we love without boundaries. And when we are called home, flight attendants fly higher and we fly faster. My heart grieves for the Malaysian Airlines family today. I grieve for my brothers and sisters senselessly taken from our skies and I know that when I look out the windows tonight and all night there will be new stars in the sky and I will know their names on my heart.
Just dropping in to remind you all that good things are ahead! Never give up! Its hard to keep patient and it’s hard to find the courage to keep going when all you want to do is cry but remember that nothing worth having is easy. Let your hearts be full of joy and happiness today. I hope that wherever you are in this vast world you keep smiling and be thankful for the sun in your face and the clouds above. You are blessed, you are beautiful, and you are worth it.

Thank you for asking! Being a cabin crew for Emirates is really a dream come true. I love every minute I am in the air. I would recommend it to anyone who is not ready to settle into an everyday life but welcomes the adventure of where tomorrow has to take you!
I sat on my jumpseat early this morning ready for takeoff and closed my eyes trying to silence everything. I just ache. We share the skies with so many brothers and sisters and to know that we’ve lost fifteen of them to an act of senseless cruelty just hurts so deeply. There were tears in the briefing room and there will be tears once again when I take this uniform off and don’t have to be strong for anyone anymore.
Flight attendants never leave this Earth, they just fly higher.
Fly high, my brothers and sisters in the sky. My heart goes with you in the great blue beyond
