July 2021 Roster

Next month I will be going to…

Chicago, Illinois USA (Layover)
New York, USA (Layover)
SEP Recurrent (Annual Exams)
Karachi, Pakistan (Turnaround)
ANNUAL LEAVE
Mumbai, India (Turnaround)
Islamabad, Pakistan (Turnaround)

Starting off the month is a very exciting layover to Chicago, Illinois! I have slowly been ticking off all of the US destinations on the Emirates network and I only have two more to visit – Chicago and Seattle. I’m really looking forward to visiting Skydeck Chicago and Cloud Gate ‘The Bean’ as well as trying the legendary Chicago style deep dish pizza.

Next up is a layover to New York which I am really hoping to swap. I have been to New York quite a few times now, plus, my Mum and I recently surprised my sister for her birthday with a trip to New York (whenever the borders open for UK citizens) so I want to wait for that! Hopefully something will come up, even though New York in the summer is beautiful.

The dreaded SEP annual exams are next which I am really not looking forward to. This will be my third one, and it really doesn’t get any easier. There is so much to study and remember and there is a lot of pressure on you as there are repercussions if you fail. I also really dislike studying as it reminds me of being back at school/university, but once it is all over and done, I will feel very proud, and relieved!

After a quick turnaround to Pakistan and back, I am then going on my holidays. I have 9 days holiday and my husband and I are planning to visit his family in Alexandria, Egypt, and then perhaps spend a few days in the North Coast which is beach resort town just an hour’s drive away from Alexandria. We will also be there for Eid al-Adha which will be really nice.

After my leave, I have two turnarounds to India and Pakistan. I’m quite glad I don’t have a layover or long US flight straight after my leave as I always like to spend a few days in Dubai sorting everything out and easing back into things.

Despite having SEP in the middle, I don’t think this month’s roster is too bad. I am really excited to get out and about in Chicago, and hopefully I can swap New York for somewhere different.

Keep a look out for my next post on Chicago…

Thanks for reading.
