Welcome to A Flying Bean!

Hello, Ciao, Hola, Bonjour, Privyet and welcome to my blog!

‘A Flying Bean’ is a blog written partly in an attempt to remember and document my travels around this wonderful world!

You may ask, why would you need a blog to do that? Well, I’m an adventurous soul working as cabin crew for an international airline. A consequence of spending most of my nights at 35,000 ft serving an array of calorific snacks to strangers, instead of sleeping, is a terrible memory!

This is a blog made up of all my travels for work and pleasure, both international and domestic (UK), alongside some truthful accounts of what life is like in the jet stream as a flight attendant. I hope that my experiences inspire you to get out there and explore your corner of the world and beyond!

Despite the fact I’m a complete chatter box, it turns out I’m not a great orator when I need to describe my thoughts and experiences out loud; I never seem to do it justice. So writing about it felt like a natural extension of that and for me is the best way to get all these nuggets of experience down somewhere I won’t lose them!

So, please have a read and follow along for the journey! I hope you find it an interesting read and do feel free to leave comments or contact me if you have any questions.

Happy travels!
