Latest Updates

Right, so after arriving into Dubai from my London flight (which was REALLY bad) I had less than 9 hours to get ready. (Well, there was less than 9 hours between the arrival time of the London flight and the departure of the Vienna flight, so in reality, taking into account it took DXB a whopping 1.5 hours to locate my suitcase, I had about 6 hours to myself in my apartment, 3 of which was spent sleeping) I was VERY tired, and considered calling sick, but alas upon reflecting on how little flying I had done, I needed the $$$ and operated the flight. Plus I'd never been to Vienna before.


It was worth going - even though it was pouring down (one of the locals had told us the previous week was 39 degrees Celcius, which didn't amuse us) the city was still amazing, so full of that European architecture you can only dream about living back home.




Went out with 2 of the crew, Stephanie and Laura, Steph was in the same position as me and had never seen the city before, whereas Laura had and just wanted a walk. The one thing I wanted to do most in the city was go to a classical music concert of some sort. My dad brought me up on classical music, and yeah many high school years were spent practicing Beethoven on the piano. Steph was keen, but Laura wasn't, so I was glad that someone actually wanted to go.

The Stephansdom on the Stephansplatz.


The Hofburg Palace, home of the Habsburg emperors until early last centry. And also where the concert was being held.

The amazing stage (actually the entire building was very plush and in very good condition)

So, after an amazing month of flights, I'm now on Reserve until mid-September. I go back to Perth for 2 weeks, and I have another Business Promotion at the start of September, but I've already done one turnaround and things look to be headed in that direction. I remember my last reserve period, Karachi, Kuwait, Karachi, with a few BP events thrown in for good measure. Will keep you guys posted if I get anything half-decent.
