“Choose a job you love and you will
never have to work a day in your life.”
While I love my job more than almost anything else, spending time with the ones I love is the thing I love and enjoy the most. Because it’s so much more important than my job as a flight attendant. But what is more perfect when these two things are combined?
Just a week before christmas my boyfriend -who’s a pilot (first officer)- and I flew together. The cockpit door was the only thing that separated us, and our little 4 day trip was pretty perfect! We requested an early trip to Prague, Bologna and Lyon and by suprise we both got this trip!
It’s very difficult for us to fly together. We do work for the same airline, but whereas he’s only flying the embraer, I fly another aircraft (fokker70) as well. And therefor my roster has more options and more variety than his. So we had to look closely and finally found the perfect ‘pairing’ we could fly together.
I do love my job, I can’t imagine a life without flying, but I do miss my time at home every now and then. I love spending time with my mom, my boyfriend and my friends. But sometimes it’s very hard to have days off in the weekend or to have a day off at someones birthday. I’m away for 4 nights a week most of the time, making it very difficult to maintain a blog as well. But I manage, I do what I can and I do it with love.
