If you weren’t already aware, next week Rachel and I are flying off to Barcelona for a few days and I’m so excited. I’ve never been to Barcelona before (well, I went to the airport last month to visit Ferrari Land, but I’m not counting that!) so obviously I have a ridiculously long list of things that I want to see and places I want to go to. We have three full days in the city, so hopefully I’ll be able to cross most (if not all) of these things off.  View Post

 

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.
