Serving Justin Trudeau

What a great memory and fantastic way to end my last mission!

It was with my utmost pride and pleasure to personally serve Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Trudeau as their personal Flight Steward for a V.V.I.P. flight that took off from Anchorage, Alaska to Tokyo, Japan and back.

They were both very kind-hearted, well-mannered and down to earth people, which made my job on-board that much more enjoyable!

I worked on several of his flights, including his first international flight as the newly appointed PM; but this was the first time I worked in his stateroom, providing V.V.I.P. service.

To top it off, as this was my last flight after 4 years of flying with my unit, he signed my “Flying Log Book”, which keeps track of all my flights, missions and flying hours. It’s signed “For Jordan, With my Best, Justin”. I finished off 4 years of flying with 1214.9 hours spent in the air, which is equivalent to spending roughly 50.5 days non-stop in the air! I landed in a total of 35 countries in 5/7 continents!

Thanks for all the good times, guys!

Now onto new and exciting adventures! Where I go next, nobody knows

Travel jobs for Canadians!

Canada-Flag-HD-Wallpapers-for-Mobile

Canada, eh?!

Fellow Canadians! Feeling lost, looking for an adventure/new career and don’t know where to start? Or maybe your qualifications aren’t at a level where they’re being highly sought after… Well, I’ll share some cool ideas with you that I’ve learned about throughout the past many years!

———————————————————————–

First thing’s first – a bit biased, but nonetheless, a fantastic career option (no need to explain, you see enough through some of my posts coming back from trips around the world):

Canadian Forces: http://www.forces.ca/en/home

———————————————————————–

Don’t want to leave the country but want to have an adventure domestically?

Canadian Coast Guard:

———————————————————————–

Do you want to study abroad but afraid that you can’t afford the international student tuition?

Study in Norway for free:

Study in Germany for almost free: http://www.topuniversities.com/where-to-stu…/…/germany/guide

———————————————————————–

Want to fly sky high and see many countries in a short period of time? Compensated well in salary, benefits and vacation? Discounted flight for family? If you can handle living abroad with paid accommodation, then you may want to check out positions for the following airlines:

Etihad Airlines:

Air Emirates:

Qatar Airways:

———————————————————————–

Another way you can live abroad with a decent income is to teach English abroad. Many countries will accept teachers without a degree, asking for a minimum nativity in the English language and completion of a TEFL/TESOL course – which can be completed in any major city or even online. Don’t get me wrong, a Bachelor’s degree will help broaden your opportunities in more countries, but it isn’t required!

Check out this accredited online TEFL course with internships opportunities abroad:

Want to have the opportunity to temporarily live/work abroad with a support system backing you up?

Check out Canada’s “SWAP” program!

WWOOFing!

No, that’s not a dog barking, but a concept and opportunity much cooler than that!

WWOOF organisations connect people who want to live and learn on organic farms and smallholdings with people who are looking for volunteer help.
WWOOF hosts offer food, accommodation and opportunities to learn about organic lifestyles. Volunteers give hands on help in return.

The cool thing about this? You can go to almost any country in the world and WWOOF!

Like kids? Enjoy babysitting? Ever think of becoming an Au-Pair?

What is an “Au-Pair”?

An au pair is a young adult from another country who lives with your family for a year and provides in-home childcare (like a nanny, but better)! Au pairs work up to 45 hours per week, in exchange for the opportunity to live with a family in a foreign country. Because au pairs provide live-in childcare, they offer greater flexibility, caring for your children at times that accommodate your family’s individual schedule.

Like WWOOFING, this is another website posting volunteer opportunities worldwide in exchange for room and board. It’s a great way to learn culture, a new language and of course, to live up a new adventure!

Grand Opening!

Image

It’s new, primitive and there isn’t a whole lot of content at the moment, but that’s completely understandable considering that this is the first post that I’m writing for this blog. I am still getting used to all the features that WordPress.com has to offer and learning how to navigate my way through all the different tabs, but I’m slowly getting the hang of it!

If you’re here viewing my blog as early at the first post, then I want to thank you for taking your time to read up on what I have to say!

If the blog hasn’t already spoken for itself already, then I’ll speak for it and say that this is in fact, a full-on travel blog, so if traveling is your high, if traveling excites you and you live to travel or you at least have the aspiration and goals to do so, then this blog is definitely for you!

I’ve already been to 18 countries and I just turned 24, there are many more to come shortly! I want to travel until the day I die and I plan to see every bit of the world and every bit of it will be shared on this blog.

My goal on this blog is to provide you with a constant flow of new posts, photos and videos which will present you with an insight into what life is like in foreign countries and endless cities and also, how to effectively travel in various ways! You will learn what my life is like as a Flight Steward on a day-to-day basis as well.

I want to let you, the reader, know that I encourage a social atmosphere on this blog/website, meaning you are free to send me any questions, comments, queries about anything you have on your mind and I will do my best to answer them for you. If I find your question to be interesting, then I may feature it on a new post with my answer included.

I really do hope you enjoy this blog as more content posts/stories become available in the future, so please take a moment and follow me! You won’t regret it!
