Hola all! So I'm back from what was the most fun, and tiring week ever (a.k.a Benicassim!), sorry I lefty my blog a little AWOL, I was meant to schedule some posts, but being the unorganised holiday maker I am, left no time between packing and blogging!

Anyway, I had an amazing time away, I even managed to tan my pasty skin without burning which was definitely a result (even if it is patchy and looks like I've gone abit crazy with Holiday Skin). The week was filled with lots of sand (and dust and grass), salty sea, pizza (seemed to be my meal of choice on most evenings) and some of the greatest live music I've seen in a while. I was lucky enough to see the likes of The Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Arcade Fire, Beirut, Brandon Flowers, Mumford & Sons, Paolo Nutini and Crystal Fighters, amongst many others, in a mere 4 days and additionally managed to pretty much exhaust myself from all my fan girlish screaming and dancing.

Overall, I would really recommend the festival for anyone looking to get away for some sunshine and good music. It is by no means a relaxing holiday, but filled with chances to 'catch some rays', enjoy some amazing live music/ new bands (and some fun Spanish acts), spend some quality time with friends and brave some of the coldest showers known to man.
