Crew Life: Hello Boeing 777.
Hey aviation lovers,
when people asked me what planes I was flying, my proud reply was: “I am an Airbus girl.” It might sound cheesy, but the Airbus-A320 was the first airplane I was trained on when I started flying. Therefore we have a very special relationship and I always feel a bit like coming home. 😉 I know the plane and the cabin like the back of my hand: not only am I familiar with the exact location of all the emergency equipment but also the procedures, calls, special features. And I know my way around in the galleys (also known as board kitchens, for those of you who are not flying), even though I don’t fly so much anymore.

Iguazu Falls: What You Must Know When Visiting.
If I had to describe my travels to South America with only one word, it would be eye-opening. The time spent there was eye-opening in so many ways and I remember everything as it was only yesterday and not four months ago. Not only did I finally see my last one of the New7Wonders of the World, I also saw another one of the New7Wonders of Nature: After the Table Mountain in South Africa one year ago, it was time to visit the Iguazu Falls.
Where I've been to
Hey fellow traveler and adventure seeker,
a few days ago I was updating my personal world map for the blog. And I realized I was setting foot on country #47 when traveling to Finland last week. Looking at this map it still feels so surreal to me. I am really, really grateful for every place I was able to see. And it’s nothing I take it for granted. Before I started flying seven years ago I’ve neven been outside of Europe. A lot has changed over the past years. Now the world feels almost ‘small’ to me, even though there is a LOT I haven’t seen yet (there is still a lot of grey on the map..).
