Hey everyone, welcome to my online travel blog. Considering ive been so slack with the emails i thought this would be the ideal way to keep family and friends up to date with what ive been up to. For those of you who don't know me, i am a 31 year old from New Zealand working as a flight attendant based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
