New York: Sunrise at the Brooklyn Bridge

I really don’t know why wearing headphones isn’t allowed on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. Probably listening to music is too distracting, because the strip for pedestrian is very narrow and on the bike lane next to it people run so fast with their bikes as if they were training for the next […]

Street Art in Miami: Wynwood Walls

The best thing about flight to North America: I finally manage to get up early due to the jetlag. And I even get to see the sunrise for once. With a hotel next to the beach in South Beach: even better. But what isn’t beautiful in Miami? Beautiful people, beautiful beaches, beautiful light – beauty […]

Getting close to North Korea – a day trip to the DMZ

North Korea has been on my bucket list for quite some time now, since I watched some interesting documentaries on this surreal country. Going there is not that easy, you have to travel with an approved tour operator and during the whole trip you are being watched by your tour guides. And there’s that feeling to […]

Washington DC: What to see around The Mall!

A piece of history, just like that. Sometimes this job takes you to places you never imagined. And sometimes you will find yourself in the most interesting moments of history. When I got to Washington, it was shortly after the new American president was elected – and two days before Christmas Eve. The city was […]

Cooking Class in Chiang Mai for Thai Food Lovers

Before I first came there, I’d never had the idea to do a cooking class in Thailand. Too expensive, I thought, and probably only interesting for ambitious chefs. But when I got there I realized: You can book a cooking course almost everywhere in Thailand and it’s kind of a Must-Do for any visitor. They […]

Chatuchak Market in Bangkok: Shop ’til you drop!

Du willst das ultimative Shoppingerlebnis während Deines Bangkok-Aufenthaltes? Dann musst Du zum Chatuchak Markt. Günstige Klamotten und Mitbringsel finden sich ja in Bangkok nahezu an jeder Ecke, aber der Chatuchak Markt ist allein auf Grund seiner Größe echt sehenswert. Hier kann man den ganzen Tag vertrödeln, denn der Markt ist einfach riesig (und nebenbei der […]

Merry Christmas, New York!

Is there any chance not to be flashed by New York? Especially during Chrismas Time? This hug city full of people, full of building, full of history. Every street corner tells a different story and looks familiar, probably because you might have seen it in one of those countless movies or television series playing in […]

Winter in Montreal

I just imagined Montreal and Canada in December really differently. It was my first time in Montreal, let alone Canada, and I expected snow. A lot of snow. Huge masses of snow. Instead I arrived during some unusual warm days in December and the last snow has just melt. No Canadian winter wonderland for me. […]

Is it safe to travel to Tehran? Meet the locals.

…translation in progress..! Gastfreundschaft ist ja etwas, mit dem man sich als Flugbegleiter auskennen sollte. Besonders nach 16 Jahren Berufserfahrung. Nachdem ich aber in Teheran war, und das durch einige Zufälle auch noch länger als geplant, weiß ich: Es gibt noch viel zu lernen. Vom Iran hatte sich ein diffuses Bild in meinem Kopf festgesetzt: […]

Requesten für Anfänger oder: Teheran und ich.

So ziemlich jede Airline hat ihr eigenes Requestsystem für Crews. Und jedes hat seine Eigenheiten. Flüge requesten bestand früher zum Beispiel für mich aus einem vage abgegebenem Wunsch, doch diesen oder jeden Flug zu bekommen oder eine bestimmte Destination anzufliegen. Oder lieber Früh- oder Spätdienst zu fliegen. Unverbindlich. Ungewiss. Zusammen mit meiner Abneigung gegen Deadlines (den […]

Cape Town: Layover Love.

…translation in progress..! Wenn man sich schon gleich nach der Ankunft die wildesten Sachen ausdenkt, wie man am besten dem drohenden Pick-Up am übernächsten Tag entgehen kann – dann muss es wahre Layoverliebe sein. Ach, Kapstadt. Kapstadt ist wunderbar.  Die traurige Erkenntnis kommt schnell. Kapstadt in 24 Stunden: Geht nicht. Aber das Leben ist nun […]
