Not right now 2

At times I feel truly sorry for the partners of airline crew. I presume I’m not the only one – even though I’ve lived with my partner for years, he must still be surprised by my occasional “Not right now!” on the day of my return. And it could be anything that isn’t possible “right… read more »

We have probably all enjoyed an in-flight meal at some stage. We’re given a small tray by the cabin crew, take the cutlery out, tear the cellophane off the meal and tuck in. But stop right there.

I have always wanted to see The Fjords. I’m not sure why. Maybe because they featured in my father’s travel slides, which we begged him to screen three or four times a year, before we got a TV. I was also pretty crazy about Vikings and Prince Valiant back in those days, and I loved… read more »

I can’t put it off any longer: I must write about Johannesburg. And I must start by saying that no other city in the world fills me with such dread. Maybe everyone who flees their hometown returns with that heavy stone in their stomachs. In my case, it’s more like a bagful of pebbles that… read more »

To explore the world and to give in to one’s curiosity about other cultures. I assume those are the main reasons why most people travel to foreign countries. I’m pretty sure these are also the main motives behind most of my colleagues applying for the job of cabin attendant. They certainly were for me. Having… read more »
