Overview

Jet Vignettes is a departure from the genre of books telling crazy crew and passenger drama tales; instead, it is the personal stories of an international flight attendant traveling around the world for the last 23 years: the laughter, discoveries, experiences, grief, love, downright frightening moments, crew camaraderie and multiple adventures. 

Flight attendants have the job that reaps the most rewards.  Buying Japanese bottle openers and kimonos in Tokyo, having cocktails outside at the “barrel bar” in Rome late on a summer afternoon or, because it is winter, heading south to lie on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro - all in the same month - is what makes the job of a flight attendant so addictive, and enviable. When we arrive anywhere, our work is done and the day, or night, is ours to enjoy. And that we do - Jet Vignettes.

I found this book to be an enjoyably easy book to read because I felt as if the author were there telling the story to me. The descriptions of out-of-the-way places and of trying to be a local are humorous. I have visual references for Europe and Rio and for the tiny workspace within which flight attendants must work. I have a new view of travel and the people who get me to my destinations now. I will try not to overpack in the future, but I make no promises. My habits are entrenched.
