As I sit in my hotel room from the 9th floor of a beautiful hotel in Seattle, I am reminded of one of main the reasons I love being a flight attendant…
Traveling to different cities all over the world.
I have a gypsy soul and staying in one place makes me cranky. I am happiest when I can enjoy seafood along Pike Street and cruise down Bourbon Street in New Orleans the next night.
I have thousands of pictures on my cell phone from every shore line and sunset across the United States and Canada. I look forward to adding many more.
There is something freeing in exploring nature, beholding every sight each city has to offer, meeting and knowing the local culture, and enjoying food from every part of the world. I am reminded in my travels that I belong nowhere and everywhere all at once.
Being a flight attendant is more than a job. It is a lifestyle and a career that allows me to reconnect with myself and humanity.
It isn’t all peaches and roses and there are pros and cons to this lifestyle … much of which I will cover on this blog… from applying for the job of a flight attendant to acclimating to life in the skies.
Buckle up and welcome aboard.
