Flying to Barcelona with Monarch

Throughout the past couple of months, I’ve spent a lot of time flying between the UK and Barcelona. Most recently, Haydy & I  flew from Gatwick to Barcelona El-Prat Airport with Monarch.

I’ve previously flown with them when I was a lot younger on…

Especially when I’m travelling long distance on planes, I like to have a book with me to keep my occupied. The guys over at Holiday Gems got in touch to see if I’d like to choose out some books to take away with me on my travels.
