Christmas in Rome 2013

December 2013

This was one of my saddest Chrismas Eves ever. Our flight to Rome with less than 30 pax onboard was seriously delayed due to a strike of the handling services and when we arrived way past midnight, one waiter was waiting alone to serve us dinner at the hotel. He was probably having an even sadder Christmas than us... And that made me sad too.

Next day, the 25th of December, in the afternoon, it was time to go back to my home base, Lisboa. I spotted this Alitalia A330 parked next to us in Fiumicino Airport, by the days when I was longing to have a promotion to the WB fleet.

 Today I'm longing to go back to the NB fleet and the european flights...

Christmas decorations in New York, 2018

December 2018

One thing that I miss a lot is seeing New York during the Christmas Season. This was my last time. I was starting to have a cold but I ventured to the Rockefeller Center.

San Francisco 2022 (day 2)

 November 2022

Christmas Season

Next morning I still had a few hours left in San Francisco. Despite we are still in November, many Christmas decorations were already in place. I loved the Christmas decoration of my hotel.

And I went back to the Union Square to take a picture of the tree during the day.

Transamerica Pyramid

This has to be my favorite building in San Francisco. A wonderful 48-story skyscraper.

SF-Oakland Bridge

I also visited again The Embarcadero...

Salesforce Park

... and also this wonderful park.

Powell Street

My last  stop before going back to the hotel was to enoy the view from the Powell St / California St intersection.

I hope you enjoyed it too!
