This Instagram-famous 23-year-old's Photos Will Make You Want to Become a Flight Attendant
A flight attendant for Emirates is proving you don’t have to be a celebrity to live the jet-set life.
23-year-old Brigita Jagelaviciute, originally from Lithuania but living in Dubai, has traveled to 74 countries so far, and her worldly adventures can be seen on her gorgeously cultivated Instagram account.
So far, the young flight attendant has racked up over 64,000 followers and it’s easy to see why. Her dreamy photos of some of the most beautiful locations in the world are sure to spark anyone’s wanderlust.
But all that travel comes with a serious workload. According to the Daily Mail, Jagelaviciute has scheduled 80 trips within the last year.
Luckily, Jagelaviciute doesn’t mind a life that’s constantly on the go. “I don’t like waking up at the same time and doing the same thing five days a week only to wait for the weekend...Meeting new people when you’re young is also lots of fun and this job is a great opportunity to make some long-lasting friendships,” she told the Daily Mail.
Of course, she also admits that traveling from one time zone or climate to another can be exhausting.
“The worst part of being a flight attendant is most definitely jet lag...You have to be capable to quickly adjust to different temperatures, time zones and places and it’s not easy. I think even after having worked many years in aviation people still struggle sometimes to fight it,” she said.
But she doesn’t intend to stop her jet-set life any time soon. Having traveled to 74 countries already, it seems that Jagelaviciute is striving to visit as many destinations as she can in the world.
“[74 countries is] only 30 percent of the world, so I still have a long way to go,” she said.
