In aviation, things always turn out differently than you think. Everything is in upheaval, everything is changing, our aviation world is upside down. And so now I’m flying around the world for a few months on the long haul – just like that. With all the trimmings that go with a new flight attendant job: the excitement before the first flight, the wobbly knees, the wondering eyes and a big bellyache from sheer nervousness. And I feel 21 again, like when it all began. Off to Charlotte, off to a little city break in North Carolina, on the east coast of the USA.
Charlotte: Where is that?
Actually, I was grateful that the first flight was to Charlotte. Because it’s not as spectacular as New York or Chicago. (Charlotte, by the way, is in North Carolina/USA and is home to the headquarters of Bank of America. Aha. Learned something again). I was already excited enough.
Unfortunately, small foothills of Hurricane Matthew raged through the city, and so the atmosphere was: special.

Here are a few ideas for a trip to Charlotte, in case you have better luck with the weather than I did!
