Last week I went on the most exciting press trip EVER with Rachel; we were invited to the opening of Ferrari Land in PortAventura, Spain with 365 Tickets. For those of you that don’t know, PortAventura is a theme park just an hour outside of Barcelona in the Salou area of Spain and welcomes over 4 million visitors a year. Ferrari Land is a separate theme park on the PortAventura site which is dedicated to the brand and celebrates all things Ferrari. It also boasts Europe’s tallest and fastest rollercoaster Red Force which has been making headlines since the opening day. View Post
Although I live so close to Birmingham, the last train home is at 23:15 which means that when I go to a gig I often have to miss the last couple of songs to ensure I make it back to New Street Station on time. Once I get back it can cost me up to £15 for a taxi back to my house, so I was really pleased to hear that Birmingham was getting its own Easy Hotel with rooms starting from just £23.99. When I found out, I decided to book myself a room for when I was going to see Band of Horses at the O2 Institute – it was only going to cost me an extra £9 and it meant that I could stay for the full set and then be in bed with a Starbucks within 20 minutes of leaving the venue.

Last week I was invited by the Chamäleon Theatre on a press trip to the German capital of Berlin. As you can imagine, when I received the email I was very excited! I’d been to Germany twice before in 2016 and I had visited Dusseldorf and Cologne both times, so I was keen to explore a different German city. The purpose of the visit was to see the new show, Scotch & Soda which had just opened at the Chamäleon the week before we went over. Described as “a whisky-soaked evening of raucous circus, dance and music”, Scotch & Soda is like nothing else I have ever seen at the theatre before.
