We’re particularly pleased to bring you May’s Meet The Driver because it is for one of our female drivers – Birute Sablinskaite.
Birute is from Lithuania and is 28 years old. She drives a Ford Galaxy and has worked for Airport Lynx for 5 months. Before moving to Cambridge last year, she lived in London – she feels it’s a big change to be in Comberton, not least because it’s feels like she’s settled into quintessential village life.
She came to work for Airport Lynx because her boyfriend also drives for us – and as someone who loves to drive, it fits in perfectly around her studies in health and social care management. Even though she’s only been with us a short time, she thinks she’s made a good decision because she’s enjoying working with the other drivers and office team.
Driving wise, she prefers to drive when it is not rainy and dark – she worries about other car drivers not changing their driving for the inclement weather.
Aside from driving and studying Birute is a keen gardener. She has her own greenhouse which has brought her lots of produce – cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, courgettes and many others. She loves to pickle or freeze them and enjoy her own vegetables during the winter. She also likes doing yoga – she feels it gives her some much needs space and peace of mind.
Birute’s most memorable trip was to Thailand – apparently it is paradise on earth, the beautiful seas, friendly people, delicious food and interesting culture made it somewhere she’ll definitely visit again.
Domestically, she feels that her most memorable drive for Airport Lynx was the first time she drove to Heathrow. There was traffic which made her more nervous, but the passengers were very accommodating and got to their flight with plenty of time to spare for their check in.
And finally, we asked Birute as to which car she’d buy if she won the lottery. Surprisingly she said – any car in white! She loves white cars and also larger cars as they are so comfortable to drive – making the Audi Q7 or Volvo XC90 feature at the top of her shortlist.
We hope you’ve enjoyed learning more about Birute in this month’s Meet The Driver. We’re looking forward to introducing another member of the team in June!
