If your job involves flying around the world and visiting foreign places, it suggests that you learn about all those different cultures easily.

There are times I wish I had a regular job – leaving in the morning to return home at the end of the day and, most of all, being at a convenient distance from my loved ones. That’s what I wished last week, after I found out my dad had fallen ill. His condition was… read more »

There’s a certain atmosphere in the air during these days before Christmas. In Northern Europe, the days are short, dark and cold. When you walk along the streets and pass all those cosy-looking houses, it makes you long to go inside and spend the rest of the day sitting in front of a roaring fire,… read more »

In a comment on my last blog, Tom asked me how we deal with angry and frustrated customers when weather conditions disrupt air traffic. He referred to certain comments on Facebook and wondered whether people react the same in ‘real life’ as they do online. During the extreme fog in Holland a few weeks ago,… read more »
