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.

Ludovico Einaudi | Edinburgh Usher Hall

     I've posted a fair number of concert posts on here in the past, but this must be my first classical music post. I do like classical music from time to time, especially in the background when I need to concentrate on something - and not sing along to lyrics! And as a pianist, I've played my fair share of it as well, but it's rare that I go see it live like this. However, when my flatmate got tickets for Ludovico Einaudi recently, I wasn't saying no!
