Most of the destinations that I fly to are the ones that I have never visited before. Malta is a place where I wasn't supposed to fly at all, my initial destination was Dublin. When I got a swap for a Malta flight, I accepted straight away. Spending the last day of October at Malta? Yes, please. 


Yinchuan is the capital city of Ningxia Autonomous Region, located on the Yellow River. It's possible that you have never heard of it. Before this trip, I was among the people who had never heard about this place either. 
My friend travels to this place quite often and refers to it as a "mini vacation" because this trip lasts from anywhere from 4-7 days. So it's really like a mini holiday. Mine was for almost 5 days in total including the short flight in between. 


The second part of the multi sector let me visit Brisbane, Australia. You could read about the first part from Singapore here. Brisbane was the last city in Australia where we fly with the airline that I work for but hadn't visited before. So I was very excited to go there (do I actually use this word way too often when I talk about the new destinations? I might do). 


I have watched my friends traveling to Singapore for months and for some reason I wasn't lucky enough to go there myself. I kept biding for this flight and then being removed. Last month, I finally saw "SIN" on my roster and the best part was that one of my dearest friends in Dubai was there at the same time. Is there anything better than enjoying a layover together with your friend?
