My Five Favourite Aeroplane Albums

One of the main ways I pass a flight is by listening to music. And I’ve started to notice that I go for the same albums every time I go away somewhere, and they tend to be albums I absolutely love and know so well that I can tune out a bit and fall asleep […]

Favourite Writers

June has been a pretty damn glorious month, so here’s a post to tell you guys what I’ve been up to. Despite moaning about the weather being too hot (like today – it’s like being in a sauna constantly) and feeling in constant need of a shower, I love June because the hot weather also […]
