Things I’ve Learned in the “University of the Sky”

People spend hundreds of thousands of dollars getting college and graduate degrees. For the grand total cost of zero dollars, I have learned hundreds of valuable lessons in what I like to call “The University of the Sky,” aka, working as a flight attendant. In addition to a regular paycheck and decent benefits, I get…

The World’s Strangest “Lost & Found” Collection

I read an article long ago about the things people leave behind on trains. Tokyo is literally crisscrossed with commuter trains that carry millions of passengers to and from various places every day. Most are traveling between homes and offices, but many others are just out and about in the world’s largest city. The article…

I’ll Never Forget That Night in Las Vegas

There are so many urban legends about Las Vegas that you just don’t know what to believe anymore. From friends, passengers and strangers, I’ve heard stories about the legendary city that have made me wonder. Is Las Vegas really all they say it is? I’ve been there many times but never spent more than one…

The Extremely Loud Lady in the Back of the Plane

You learn some quick lessons when your “office” is an airplane cabin. In the first few months I worked in the air I found out that when people are unusually loud, there’s a reason. Of the hundreds of noisy passengers I’ve encountered in my career, 95 percent of them had had too much to drink…

OMG! The Plane Was Packed With Online Gamblers

I’m not a big gambler but do enjoy spending an occasional hour or two in the casinos just for fun. On past trips in Caribbean and Las Vegas casinos, I had a blast feeding a few dollars to the slot machines and trying my skill at the roulette tables. I’ve never won or lost much…

My Caribbean “Education”

I’ve learned a lot about traveling in the Caribbean. Luckily, my job allows me to visit the Caribbean islands several times each year. Airline crew workers don’t always get a lot of time off, but it’s really fun to be able to explore and learn about the world’s most popular islands. On my last layover,…

How to catch a CFO fish

I could have been part of an amazing love story. Cliché, maybe, but still a love story and that’s something us women fall to. Anyway, it was just a regular flight and I was sipping drinks to the passengers, when I accidently spilled hot tea all over the pants of a guy sitting by the…

The city of love and the French accent

I know they’re saying that all roads lead to Rome, but as far as I’m concerned, I totally wouldn’t mind if all my roads lead to France and Paris in particular. I used some free time that I had to visit Palais-Royal gardens, which are treated as one of Paris’s best secrets. Palais-Royal used to…

The secrets of a flight attendant

I read a very interesting article online recently about the characteristics of the flight attendant’s job and I really had a good laugh. They really nailed it, I could have recognized myself in many of the things written there, so I just thought to write a few lines about it. First of all, it’s true,…

A woman got lost, found watching a basketball game in MSG

Hello, dear friends. I had the opportunity to visit an NBA game and see the New York Knicks basketball team live!  Well, I actually wasn’t that thrilled, but my friend Marta is actually a Knicks fan and, since she had an extra ticket because she broke up with her boyfriend, I decided to accompany her.…

Why I love my old fashioned brother

Some of you guys (and girls, but I like thinking that guys make the majority of my visitors lol) that actually visited my about me page or have at least carefully read my posts, know that I have a brother named Max, who means a world to me. Unfortunately, I don’t see him as much…

Celebrity on plane or Matilde meets Wentworth

Oh my God, oh my God, oh my god! I’m simply ecstatic as I got to meet Wentworth Miller on my flight! Girls reading this blog will relate with me – you know when you fantasize about some celebrity (in a nice way, not in a dirty one) and every time you see him on…

INTRODUCING – AMSTERDAM, MY HOMETOWN

I’m more than proud of my Dutch roots and always love when I’m in my hometown, which happens to also be the biggest city in the whole country. This is why I will abuse owning of this blog to write a few lines about Amsterdam. Let me tell you one thing, Amsterdam is beautiful. A…

Is serving drinks all I do?

I love my job. Almost always, and even in those moments when I don’t cherish it that much, I quickly forget about it and I start loving it again. In fact, I think that more people should know about how it is being a flight attendant. Some guy recently said he thought that all they…
