Fear of Flying - A Pilot's Guide to Turbulence

There are different types of turbulence, mainly from rapid changes in wind direction and strength, which make the aeroplane accelerate, decelerate, or move side to side. It’s these movements, sometimes several at once, that can be uncomfortable whilst flying as a passenger, make it harder to drink your gin and tonic, read your magazine, or from my end - do my inflight paperwork! An aircraft is designed to be stable, meaning if turbulence forces the plane from its original path, it is…

Hoi An Full Moon Festival

I stumbled across Hoi An's Full Moon Festival by chance, as I had originally planned to spend longer in Saigon, and then continue to do a whistle stop tour of Da Nang and Hoi An whilst en route to the North of Vietnam. However, after the chaos of Bangkok and a busy few days in Chiang Mai, I decided that I wanted to experience a different side of South East Asia, rather than spending my entire trip travelling its big cities! Looking back, changing my initial plans was one of the best…

Exploring Thailand - 4 Days in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai was my second stop during my travels around South East Asia, and a wonderful contrast to the chaos of Bangkok. Although it's referred to the capital of the North, Chiang Mai's atmosphere is more laid-back and a perfect place to relax and 'go with the flow'. Although it still has the hustle and bustle of the city (it's the largest city in North Thailand), it's easy to retreat to the surrounding national parks and countryside for a breath of fresh air. Whilst arriving from Bangkok…

My Route to 37,000ft - Flight Training & Beyond

My adventure towards achieving my Frozen ATPL started in Oxford, where I would spend two years studying everything you could possibly think of related to aviation. I had decided on taking an integrated course, which although is more expensive, I felt was more suited towards what I wanted to achieve. I liked the idea of studying full time, with my flying and exams at the same training centre. If you’re interested in flight training, you also have the option of a modular course, which involves…

Preflight Checklist - Essentials for Travelling Abroad

1 - Check Your Passport & Visa Some countries require your passport to be at least 6 months outside its expiry date. Double check your passport is valid, as well as applying for any visas you may need. There's lots of information online, but if you're not unsure of a country's visa requirements, you can always call their embassy! It's always a good idea to keep a copy of your passport too, which leads to my next point... 2 - Store Everything Important Online Although initially I didn't want…

24 Hours in Bangkok

Bangkok has recently become the most visited city in the world; so chances are if you’re visiting Thailand, your first stop will be the City of Angels. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of things to see and do, with the contrast between the serene temples and the crazy hustle and bustle making it feel like you’re in two different locations at once. Although there’s an endless amount of culture and tourism in Bangkok, I felt that 24 hours was more than enough time for the city to…
