How would you describe your 2018, in terms of best cities to visit?

In 2018 I’ve travelled a lot but unfortunately, I didn’t have the opportunity to visit all the cities in which I landed. But to mention something I have really good memories in Biarritz the surfing paradise situated in France on the south-west coast, and the Provence region in the south part always in France. The amazing landscape through lavender hills, full of the small and old village to stop at least half day!

🇬🇧Look forward but not to much, look back in the past just to learn your mistakes, and live the present to the fullest which is the only moment we can really enjoy! I often meet people who live always in the past, loosing a lot of chances their life shows them up…and this is really a shame! Don’t you think so?! 🇮🇹 Guardate avanti ma non troppo, giratevi indietro nel passato solo per imparare i vostri errori e vivete al meglio il presente che è l'unico momento che possiamo davvero goderci! Mi capita di incontrare molte persone che vivono perennemente nel passato ricordare ciò che è successo e di ciò che è stato, perdendo diverse possibilità che la loro vita gli pone …è un vero peccato, cosa ne dite? • • • • • • • • • #passionintoprofession #globeair #uniform #aviation_lovers #piloteyes #instatravel #photography #photo #photooftheday #pilotgopro #addictedtoaviation #aviationporn #instadaily #instagood #instagram #instaviation #blogger #aviationlovers #influencer #womeninaviation #pilot #pilotlife #piloteyes737 #portrait #avgeek #femalepilot #goodvibes #businessjet #privateaviation

Any unusual request that you came across while on duty via a traveller.

Once I was on a flight and a lady asked me to heat the floor because she had cold feet. Ok! I fly on a business jet plane, but our plane is not equipped as the Brunei sultan one! 😅😅 

What is the secret to managing work and life with grace?

When I’m home I enjoy every single moment, and I do just what I want to do with the people I love! Then when I start to work I’m focused on my working week. Let’s say that I keep work commitments and free time well separated. Our job is really stressful so you have to find a way to relax. And moreover, recover as much as possible on any occasion you have, even if you’re on duty. 

3 strengths according to you is a must-have in this profession.

Absolutely yes as all many other jobs. But this, in particular, requires a lot of motivation, perseverance, focus, patience and you must be in love with the sky of course! It’s not always an easy life, especially because you work very closely to your colleague for 6 days (in my case) and you must have a really flexible and adaptable character. 

Do you use any travel related app(s)? If yes, what are they?

Yes of course! I use apps like Skyscanner, to see with which airline I can come back home when I’m released from duty. Booking, TripAdvisor is fundamental if you’re around Europe and you have no idea where you can have dinner! They are very useful!

Can i ask for more then this view in my short coffe break during cruise? ☕️☁️ I’d like you to know that cruise is the only moment during flight, where we can “relax” for few minutes (depending on the duration of the flight) before preparing the arrival and approach. • • • • • • @globeair • • • • • #passionintoprofession #globeair #uniform #aviation_lovers #piloteyes #instatravel #photography #photo #photooftheday #pilotgopro #addictedtoaviation #aviationporn #instadaily #instagood #instagram #instaviation #blogger #aviationlovers #influencer #womeninaviation #pilot #pilotlife #piloteyes737 #portrait #avgeek #femalepilot #goodvibes #businessjet #privateaviation
