VLOG #58: From The Netherlands to Italy by car!

 

As I drove my car to Holland last week for the yearly revision, I went this week with Diego to Amsterdam to pick the car up and spend time with my family!

We flew to Amsterdam via Naples and enjoyed a lovely day in Amsterdam and Friesland in the North! We then drove via Lelystad Airport (gotta watch some planes once in a while!) towards Strasbourg, where we slept at my friend Ruben’s place.

The next day, the journey continued via Germany and Switzerland to Italy, where we dropped off the car at the boat and we took a plane back to Palermo as we didn’t feel like spending 20+ hours on the ferry!

I really hope you enjoy the views of my home country and en-route to Italy throughout Europe! Happy watching!



My own experience #06: Practical exams

After my first solo, I continued flying with instructors to learn how to navigate visually (VFR – Visual Flight Rules), to practice engine failures and advanced manoeuvres such as stalls and steep turns. When my knowledge and skills were good enough, I had my Private Pilot Licence (PPL) exam. I flew with an examiner and he let me do a visual navigation, do some simulated engine failures and show him some manoeuvres. I passed the exam and received my very first pilot licence. A very valuable step in my career as a pilot!

VLOG #57: I just can’t get enough of flying!

”Do you ever get enough of flying?” Consider this video as my answer to that question!

I just LOVE being in the air, in any type of airplane, especially in formation with other aircraft! Thankfully my boyfriend is an awesome pilot and shows me what these little TB-9 airplanes are capable of! Besides the views and the formation flying, we did an awesome low pass over the runway! I hope you like the video!!

Do you ever get enough of flying?





Top 10 places to visit in Rome

Rome is such a beautiful city, there is so much to see and to do. I’ve been quite a few times in Rome and I still haven’t seen all of the landmarks. If you’re visiting Rome, prepare yourself for a lot of walking! There are hop on, hop off busses, but walking through the little streets will make you fall in love with this city!

Every time I go to Rome, I’m there for just a day or two. Below you find my top 10 of favourite places in Rome (that you can see all in one day)!

VLOG #56: At the aeroclub & Visit the control tower

 

This week we went to Boccadifalco airport on a rainy Sunday, in October there is in Palermo an event called Le Vie dei Tesori and in the weekends, people can visit many places that are usually not accessible. The airport of Boccadifalco is one of the places to visit. We did a tour to the control tower and watched airplanes!

A few days later, I had to go back to work, but Diego tookover the vlog camera and showed his experience at the aeroclub and whilst flying! I really hope you enjoy this video! Let me know if Diego did well on the VLOG take over 🙂

See you next week!
