This blog

is about my journeys, experiences, travel tips on what to see and do on a destination, how to pack your suitcase, what to consider when traveling, how different the aircrafts looks like I´m traveling with and my own flight reviews from the airlines I´m flying with. I will also write hotel reviews of the hotels I´m staying at.




I have lived in Doha, Qatar, located in the Middle East and worked as a flight attendant for Qatar Airways for nearly 3 years. I flew around the world and bent of many destinations on my bucketlist. Then I worked for Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) for few years and was based at Stockholm Arlanda.
