Neon Jungle – Trouble

Who doesn’t like girl bands? Well, I re-stumbled on this tune that was in my spotify playlist and thought it was good to resurface it especially since the Spice Girls got their own Royal Mail tribute stamps 30 years after their debut. Neon Jungle was a British girl group that burst onto the music scene […]

Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Murder On The Dancefloor

Topkapi Palace Istanbul

As we had no plans, we decided to visit one of the top spots in Istanbul. The center of the Ottoman Empire. I grew up learning a lot about western civilisations but evidently not enough about the Ottoman and how vast they were. We arrived here an hour later than initially planned due to the […]
