Most people associate being a cabin crew member with awesome travel privileges and idealize these individuals with a glamorous life of jetting off to stunning places for less than a few hours pay. What people don’t always think about is that when you have these discounts.. you’re always flying standby. And sometimes that means having days like the day (or night) I’m about to tell you about. Working in this industry means a lot of things: it means that you fly standby, and that you absolutely cannot miss work because you’re using those standby privileges.

We headed to Canyonlands National Park first, which was only about 30 minutes from Moab. This Park was a bit different from the rest we had visited. The reason for this may have been its size – this place was freaking HUGE.
After Canyonlands we drove to Colorado to hit up some hot springs for our last night. The States truly have a beautiful land. One minute we’re driving in the desert, past deserted canyons and the next we’re weaving in and out of the rocky mountains.
We hung out in the pools for a little while before trying to go to sleep early so that we could get a few hours in before our insane day (or night… depending how you look at it). But I’ll get to that on my next blog post…..
LA might be the most fun place to pack for. All I need is some cute bikinis, sundresses and sunglasses and I am good to go. 24 hours till I’m lounging on Venice Beach! The only slight catch for me is that I’m heading to work the day after for 4 days and I have to make it all fit in my carry on! Continue reading “Three Days in LA: Packing List”
This mornings wake up was a million and one times better than the night before. Sleeping in a clean, comfy bed really does wonders. We took it easy in the morning knowing that the only thing on our to-do list was Zion National Park.
It took us about 1.5 hours to get to Zion. Zion was much more than I anticipated. There was an adorable town right by the national park with lots of restaurants, ice cream parlours and little shops. Continue reading “Day 2: Zion National Park”
Okay, technically Day 2 – but day 1 was just full of flights and wine so I’m not counting that (although it was fun).
We spent our first night at a sketchy hotel within walking distance of the Vegas strip. I’ve stayed in some weird places but this may have taken the spot of the weirdest place I’ve ever stayed. At the very least it gave me a whole new perspective of vegas white trash. I was really skeptical of getting bed bugs or our car broken into but I’m happy to report that we lived through the night accident free!!! Speaking of cars, we arrived to enterprise late and they gave us a free upgrade. We’re currently roaming around Utah in an adorable little fiat!! Continue reading “Day 1: Vegas and Page, AZ”
Rapid changes in weather + Vegas + Hiking + Driving + Flying + Hot springs = a difficult packing challenge for carry ons only. But if there’s one thing I’m good at (literally the only thing I’m good at) it’s packing. Continue reading “One Week in Utah: Packing List”
Hola amigos! This weekend I’m heading on an adventure to canyonland country aka Southern Utah! Here’s my exciting itinerary for the week.

Spend night in Vegas @ America’s Best Value Inn
Flight: Westjet Toronto-Vancouver-Honolulu
Hostel: HI Waikiki Interantional Hostel
Out of all the Hawaiian Islands, I decided to go to Oahu. I heard that in order to explore the other islands that you needed to rent a car and I didn’t have that in my budget for the week. However, after talking to a friend who recently visited Maui, I was told that the hostel he stayed at would provide shuttles to the spots that visitors wanted to see – so definitely check that out if you’re trying to decide between islands and won’t be renting a car. Oahu has a reliable and easy bus system which made travelling the island much cheaper. It’s only 2.50 for a one way trip and you can get all the way around the island by bus.. it just may take a while. Continue reading “Solo Travel: One Week in O’ahu, Hawaii”
