Probably my favourite destination to have a lay-over is Sydney, Australia. I will always remember, when I sat perched on the steps of the opera house, albeit, feeling somewhat jaded because of the 11 hour time change, I knew I had found my dream job! Thank you BA for allowing me to have such wonderful experiences I will cheerish for a life time.
On the flight out of Sydney I asked the Captain if I could sit in the flight deck for take off…wow what a view first thing in the morning with a cruise liner just going under Sydney Bridge. You will never get this opportunity as a passenger, birds eye view!
