Hello and welcome to my Pretty Planet blog, my name is Tula, I’m 31 years old, and Pretty Planet is a blog and venture I started up to share information, tips and experiences of travelling the world.
I live and work in the UK and I’m a self confessed travel addict. I knew from when I was around 14 years old that I wanted to travel the world! I started a travel and tourism course at college after leaving school, and went onto university to study it further. Since I graduated I have worked in the travel and tourism industry working a whole range of jobs from hotels, travel agents and in corporate travel and events.
I am now cabin crew for a large international airline based in London, and am lucky enough to have layovers with work, it really is my dream job. I knew I wanted to be cabin crew from a young age when I was at school, but put it off for years and worked in other areas within the hospitality industry. I finally plucked up the courage to apply 5 years ago, as I thought I’m not getting any younger and it’s now or never, and I haven’t looked back since. As cheesey as it sounds it’s really one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and how many people can actually say they enjoy their job?!
I would describe myself as loud and sometimes outspoken and also a girly girl. My husband always jokes and calls me a high maintenance hippie, as I’m girly but also have a hippie side to me. Which reflects why I like such a mix of different types of trips and holidays.
I like all styles of travel from luxury holidays, to backpacking on a budget, city breaks, girly weekends away and obviously layovers with work. I wanted to create a blog for ages, as I love talking about travel, and often have friends and family messaging me and coming to me for travel advice.
I hope you find this blog an interesting read, and I want to cover a whole range of travel topics on here from destination guides, travel tips, packing tips and for anyone wanting to apply for cabin crew, there will be some information on the job role too.
If you have any questions or would like to see me add something on here, please drop me a message in the contact section.
