by Jessica Linnay

Flight Centre gives you the type of experience that’s hard to capture on a resume. Our travel agents truly are Expert Travellers and the proof is in the Instagram pudding. We’ve had quite a year in 2017.

From taking casual Friday to a whole new level at Australia HQ…

to being the life of the party pretty much everywhere we go.

Because “when in Rome”, right?

Whether we’re exploring around home,

witnessing Northern Lights in Alaska,

surfing Australia’s Gold Coast,

or hoofing it over sand dunes in the Sahara;

taking in views high above Italy’s Amalfi coast,

or venturing deep inside ancient temples of Egypt;

wandering the busy streets of Tokyo,

or sitting 1900m high on top of the world,

the #flightielife is a life that never gets boring.

Even though there are SO many beach days…

Wherever we went in 2017, we made sure to really connect to the world around us

Fatehpur Sikri, India. At the centre of this Mogul founded city is a beautiful UNESCO site. A mosque and several castles, all in sandstone. There were several castles as this emperor had several wives, all of whom needed their own space. I am happy to share pictures from my India trip with you. We were hosted by Intrepid and the trip theme was Digital Detox. While I am proud that all photos on this feed are mine, these next few India ones were taken by @karakaralynn who was with us on tour and is a Flight Centre colleague. #del #india #incredibleindia #sandstone #unesco #henna #fatehpursikri #intrepid #liveintrepid #digitaldetox #flightcentre #flightielife #openmyworld #bookwithahuman #travel #travelgram #instatravel

— all the while of course, treating ourselves to the most awesome accommodations on offer.

The adventures have truly been immeasurable, as have been the friendships we’ve made along the way.

Did we mention the parties?
