Gemma Harris, Stewardess & Blogger


I have spent 3 years in the industry on both motor and now currently sailing yachts. My job role is stewardess however working within a small crew I usually find myself doing all manner of jobs. I am currently working on a sailing yacht with an itinerary taking me into the South Pacific and onto New Zealand. In my spare time, I am a freelance travel writer focussing on travel writing for yacht crew. I am always looking for the next adventure, exploring everywhere I find myself, and as a keen photographer, with my camera in tow.

Claudio Santodirocco, Cabin Crew, ATPL Pilot Student & Blogger

Italiano, I spent my childhood in Zaire and Tunisia. Graduated in Political Sciences with a MA in Development Economics. I' ve been working for UNESCO Centres while in University.

After being a part of a Photo Press Agency as photo reporter, journalist, photo editor and First Assistant to the Director I started as a freelance photographer. Meanwhile I was working as HR Assistant in a big Pharma Company.

In aviation since 2012 I am a cabin crew in a famous Eurpean Airline and student ATPL Pilot based in Girona, Spain. Collecting stories and sharing my passions are symptoms of an incurable genetic syndrome of mine.

A part from flying, I can't live without: coffee, sports, music, endless discussions from different point of views, good books and sun. I hate being labelled and prejudices of any sort and kind regarding anything or anybody.
