It's the flight attendant cruising season! That means that cruise deals are plenty and it may be that time for you to try it out! We just embarked on our annual anniversary cruise, where we hopped over to several Caribbean islands! We're actually not even allowed to tell you what we paid! I can tell you that it was worth it if only for the sunsets and not having to decide what to make for dinner for a week! Cruises can be as relaxing or event-filled as you like, given the variety of what's available on the ship. If you're new to cruising, I hope that the following suggestions and information will help prepare you for the vacation of a lifetime! 

We arrived in Athens at sunrise, knowing we had to make the best of what little time we had. We had 24 hours to explore the city before our flight the next day to Lesvos. We had done this before. While jet lag was certainly present and I drank more coffee than I care to admit, our adventure included everything that we really wanted to do.

I've been using Google Photos way before it was cool. Back in the day, we didn't have a nice app that automatically backed up all your photos. You had to do it yourself, on your computer, uphill both ways. Now, look at you with your shiny Google photos app. You are spoiled and you don't even know it. Why is that you ask? Well, I'm going to show you just how powerful google photos can be. It will become your one stop shop for photo backups.
 
Now, before you tell me how great iCloud is or any other cloud based backup solution is, check out some of the powerful features this app (and website) have! In this review, I'm going to assume you already have a Google or Gmail account. And of course, as always by using this app you are giving someone else (Google) access to all your photos. Only you can decide if you want to take that risk. At this end of this review, I'll talk in more detail about some of the potential risks you run by using it.

Being a newhire flight attendant can be rough. A lot of airlines don't pay for training, or pay very little. If you manage to make it to graduation (many don't!), you quickly realize that the hours you get while flying aren't enough to making a living wage. Hopefully, this is where you come in! You know someone who is going through flight academy and you want to help them out! Here are 10 items that can bring a little relief to the crazy experience that is Flight Academy.
