Can't believe it's already Christmas tomorrow night, where has the time gone?! But most of all what a years has it been already, and still so many nice things that will happen in the next two weeks! First of all I can't wait for Christmas, because I will be flying to,,,,,, wait for it,,,,,, NEW YORK! I got rostered the flight to NYC on the 25th of December, so I will be flying on Christmas day, and be in New York for 42 hours !! It's one of those things that you always dream about while watching the Christmas movies that take place in the city that never sleeps, and now it's coming true! Gonna see if I can go iceskating at the Rockefeller centre, walk around Central Park, hopefully crash somebody's Christmas party, and most of all just enjoy spending time in this amazing city, because it has so much to offer. Knowing me, I am sure it will be amazing, probably meet somebody on the flight who invites me to their dinner party (fingers crossed).
It's been a while since I wrote my last blog. I just have been so busy, with flying this time, no more holidays this year, haha! I did fly home on my 5 days off to surprise my brother at his 30th surprise party, and oh he was surprised. So good to spend time with the family, and to be there with the special occasions.
In november I almost had the whole family over! Tim en Nienke came for a wedding, no not mine (yet), and they stayed with me a few days as well. Unfortunately I had my annual exams so I had to study a bit as well while they were here. I passed, so legal for another year of flying!! Then mum and dad come at the end of November to soak up some sun, while my other brother managed to do a spontaneous trip to Dubai to go to the Formula 1 in Abu Dhabi. My dad and brother went to support Max Verstappen in Abu Dhabi and had the time of their lives, while mom and I just chilled around the house and sunbath at the pool, waiting for the men to return and listen to their stories. It was so nice to have them over, busy but nice, having breakfast with everybody at the dinner table, like nothing changed, just the city! I don't know if you guys know already but my brother Martijn is getting married to the love of his life, Saskia!! So excited for them to get married next year! Love is in the air....
In between I had some good flights as well, Madrid, Barcelona, Washington, Sydney, Auckland and London, a few more as well but can't really remember, or not worth mentioning (like Peshawar in Pakistan).
There were some good parties lately in Dubai. Went to a Halloween party, and had a friend over from the Netherlands, he didn't know what I got him into, being surrounded by all cabin crew haha, he loved it! My outfit? Just bought a bat woman pyjama at H&M, already had a mask and that was my outfit done, haha! Went to the Atlantis brunch with Tim en Nienke, always good fun, and many many many different drinks! Then there was Sensation White!! My good friend Koen organized for us a VIP table, a 6 liter bottle of vodka and good company, it was such a good night! Ran into my old friends Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano (for the non dutch people, those are dutch DJs). I met them in Croatia last year, and guess what, they still remembered my face, or they pretend they did. On one of my Amsterdam flights I had Carice van Houten on board, she's a dutch singer and actress and some people know her from Game of Thrones, think she's the red witch. Very nice people, she was flying with her parents and her new born baby, which I fed in the lounge, just milk, don't worry! Then on my last Amsterdam flight I saw two guys standing in the lounge, and I just had the feeling that one of them was a DJ, maybe my DJ radar told me this, and guess what, it was true. DJ Dannic was on the plane, and he was playing in Club White the next day.... I think you can all guess what happend next, I went to White last night. So much fun, such a good night, good music and again amazing people. It's hilarious how random you meet people on the plane and you go out with them and then one of them turns out to be this famous DJ, but he's a human being too, and I guess they like to be normal as well, because to be fair I never heard of his name before. Nice guys though, maybe I will see them again! Then last but not least I can't wait for New Years Eve!! We are going to Axwell & Ingrosso, they are playing at Meydan and I am organizing now a VIP table for about 20 people, will be so much fun !!!
Just thinking that 2016 is almost over makes me think about all the things I did this year, and man it was a busy year!!!! Went to Sri Lanka with mom and dad, Austria for snowboarding holiday, Amsterdam to be there for Kingsday, Hongkong a quick getaway, Mallorca & Barcelona for my birthday, Athens with Becky on days off, Netherlands to go to this festival called Solar, Peru to climb Machu Picchu, and even went to Iceland with Valerie and Selma! And I am even saving some money, it's a miracle !!! Next year I need to save more money, go play more tennis and go more often to the gym, order less delivery food, cook more, and buy less clothes (in my opinion I am doing good on the clothes part).
After all 2016 has been a good year, many laughter and it is so important to surround yourself with the right people, friendships are not about quantity but more about quality, and I am so grateful to have such an amazing family whom I all love to the moon and back, and of course have the best friends anybody can ever ask for, and I hope that I made that clear to each and everyone of you how happy I am to have all of you in my life, and that you all have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year, where all your dreams may come true <3
