Rome City Break | Part 2

     Ok so this post is arriving much later than expected, and some of the Christmas and New Year posts I've writing in previous years are not going to materialise this time. Life got very busy in the last month or two, and blogging fell aside - hopefully I'll write more about that soon, as I still want to write my 2019 review post, and an update/look forward for 2020. For now, there's still the second half of my Rome trip last month to cover! We were there for four days, so part 1 featured the first two days, exploring the historic city centre and the Coliseum. There's still another day and a half (before our evening flight home) to cover!

Rome City Break | Part 1

     I was overdue a holiday recently, and about a mont or two ago I came across super cheap weekend flights to Rome, so I just went ahead and booked it spontaneously! I then told my mum, who asked if she, my dad, and sister could all come along, so it quickly turned into a family trip (minus my brother, who is abroad himself right now anyway). I've been to Rome once before, but only for a day and a half, but this was the first time in Italy for everyone else. We were away for four nights, arriving late on a Saturday evening, and leaving again on the Wednesday evening, which gave us about three and a half days to see the city - this post will be the first of two!

Catfish & The Bottlemen | Newcastle Utilita Arena

     I saw Catfish & The Bottlemen last year at the Glasgow Summer Sessions, and introduced a friend to them at the same time. So when they announced a tour in support of their latest album, 'The Balance', she was eager to snap up tickets for it! Normally we would have gone to the Glasgow show, but they didn't add the Scottish dates until much later, so we had already bought tickets for Newcastle when they first went on sale.
