How are you?!
I am great! I’m in Dubai!!!! 😀
So… one week ago, I slept only one or two hours, and I woke up for the 3 hours ride to Lisbon with my family! We arrived early and went to breakfast in “Pasteis de Belém”, as I told you about on the last post. So… at 11.20 am after that delicious breakfast I was at the airport to check in. One of the girls joining with me was already there. She was saying goodbye to her family while I went to another espresso with my family. Before that I was nervous thinking about the weigh of the baggage. I was with an allowance of 50 kg, but how to put your whole life in only 50 kg? I made an effort but still… I was with 4 kg extra… however the gentleman realized that I was leaving for live in Dubai and I didn’t pay any extra 🙂 yeeeii!
I will not talk about how it was saying goodbye to my beautiful and fantastic family… sure you can all imagine… so I’m sorry about that… anyway… after the boarding gates I was already with two more people joining with me to this airline xD Two more architects.. so 3 in total! Three architects living the time of our lives in Dubai as cabin crew! Ahaha it could be a good blog in the future… :-p
I liked them since that moment… today I feel like I know them for ages… and I have been here only for one week! Everything is more intense when you’re living abroad with so many things happen…
So, about the flight! It took 7 hours and a half to get here. Once in my seat I felt chills just by listen the engines preparing for take off…it was amazing and I remember thinking “I will be listening this sound all the time in a couple of months”! xD
The crew was nice to us… once they heard that were new joiners on board, they invited us to the galley…
Onboard we discovered that was one more girl joining with us… so 5 portuguese in total joining on May 1st 🙂 The crew took some pictures of us with the famous red hat on the galley… and talked with us about our fleet.. they were really nice 😉
Meanwhile… I could discovery the ICE system when on my seat… and it is really a good entertainment system. I saw a movie… listened music (all kind of music is available…), and made a call for my new colleagues… on their seats. There is an option called :”call seat-to-seat” and I was messing with them already… ahahah :-p
So we arrived at Dubai around 1.30am, we wait for our papers and information for the first day of induction on sunday… and there we went for the Hotel Appartments…our temporary accommodation. 😉 Outside the airport it was really hot… at 2.30am xD Imagine the temperature during the day… We arrived at the Hotel and checked in… my roommate for now is the portuguese architect..so for now I’m good! 😀
That was the first day… and I will tell you all about this incredible first week on next post 😉 Just wait for it… 😉
