Jonas Alaska.

I have newly discovered Jonas Alaska.  Beautiful music.   Just enough of a country music to be acceptable.  I need more of this in my life.  

Tour England soon, please?

Two Door Cinema Club Love.

Since finally submitting to the pull of Spotify Premium, I have been listening to new music!  And for only £10 a month!  Yahoo!

Also, since my car radio has died, Spotify is my only way to listen to new tunes.

One of my favourite tunes that I can't stop listening to right now:

I am in love with Two Door Cinema Club right now.

Reminds me of Summer days and road trips.  Not quite sure why...

The Blog is Back!

Oh hai everyone!

I am currently sat in my friend Becca's apartment in Manhatten, New York!!  I arrived here on Saturday after what felt like the longest plane journey ever.

I am lucky enough to be staying with Bex (who is working out here for a couple of months) in her glorious apartment which is just south of central park.  She also makes an excellent tour guide and has guided me around for the last two days, escorting me to sights and eating in fabulous places that I would never have found!  Today though I adventured by myself.  So far I am loving New York.

So, Saturday.  I landed on US soil in the afternoon.  I had to stand in a queue at passport control for what felt like decades (technically, an hour.  But when you have been sat on a plane for 8 hours, an hour feels looooong).

I then had the sudden panic everyone has when they get to the baggage place, that my backpack was no where to be seen.  Obviously, I was momentally blinded, and there it was sitting waiting for me.

I then headed, red faced (40 degrees C, I practically melted) for my first yellow taxi!  Wahoo!  I finally got to Becca's and I could finally relax.

We headed out to go visit some interesting sights in an attempt to stop me from dropping off to sleep.  Our first stop was an amazing Willy Wonka-esque sweet shop (pictures to follow once I understand this laptop and this new blog set up).  There were huge gumball machines and staircases with real sweets in the steps.  I have never felt so overwhelmed by chocolately/candy goodnees!

When then headed to Bloomingdales as we are massive tourists and whilst in New York, it had to be done.

We had a greasy burger at a cute little burger joint and it was just what I needed (after nearly melting in heat/jetlag/not eating a proper meal/being up for 24 hours).  We then headed home for bed!

As I said before, I will try and add photos at a later stage since the blogger page doesn't seem to want to load properly...

Peace. xx

My New Favourite Composer...

Ludovico Einaudi's I Giorni

Beautiful.  Another piece I am determined to teach myself.

I can't wait to play more of Ludovico Einaudi's music.  Once you get your fingers round them, it's complete and utter perfection.  

Let me know what you think...
