More often than not over the past few months I’ve ended up in premium economy when I’ve been flying long haul. Premium economy is the bit of the plane that you get to after you’ve passed through after business class (when your heart starts to sink), but before you get to economy (when you just want to burst into tears). Why oh why can’t they board us the other way around? I’ve only flown premium economy for business, but I thought I’d give you a little run down of what the experience is like, as I know it can be a…

Las Vegas was built on sand and decorated in neon. The casinos and hotels of the city have always been as bright and colourful as the clientele that visited them and it’s thanks in part to the city lights that shine so brightly they draw in and seduce visitors from all over the globe.

I’ve been travelling regularly as part of my job for a good year and a half now. Thanks to work, I’ve been all over Europe, as well as visiting Africa, the Middle East and North America. Today I head off on my first trip of the year to Las Vegas, and 2015 has barely begun! Travelling as part of my job is something I’ve always aspired to, and now that I do it regularly I’ve discovered that I thrive off of it. When I’m away I’m at my focused and most tenacious. Some of the work I’m most proud of has…
