Meet Rob, a might funny and super talented London based singer-songwriter from Malta. His compelling narrative songs inspired by the seascapes he grew up around, and the city he fell in love with. His acoustic style is heart-warming and soul touching.
WHAT'S YOUR TOP TRAVEL TIP?
Travel light! And don’t fall into the trap of turning your holiday into a mad dash to take a selfie with landmarks from lists beginning with “Top 20 things to see in…”. Usually, the local gems and the best interactions happen off the beaten track. Try the local cuisine and say hello to people. You’ll find out that as humans have much more in common than we are made to believe, regardless of constructs such as nationalities and borders.
MUSIC SUGGESTION FOR A ROAD TRIP
“All I Need” - Air
Pure French electronic and acoustic bliss… the perfect sky-high sonic chill to accompany the stunning scenery from the window seat.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE TRAVEL MEMORY?
Too many to mention! From Airbnbing to the max during Rob Harbour’s Lighthouse Tour to waking up to towering mountains in lake Como…but my absolute favourite memory is probably when I got woken up at 2.30 am by my girlfriend during our stay in gorgeous Florence. Little did I know 3 blocks away from our BnB was a bakery hidden away serving freshly baked, piping hot mini pizzas and croissant-like pastries with cream. Could have been the early-morning summer breeze or the fact that the city is basically a 360 life postcard, but that was by far the best mini freshly baked pizza I have ever had!
On the flip side, my favourite travel non-memory moment would be night four of five during a Poland to Italy train trip with the lads. An open-air street party in Ljubljana resulted in yours truly enjoying a bit too much of the local “Union” beer. I remember waking up as we pulled into Venice, feeling rather worse for wear. Whilst the rest of the day was a pretty miserable affair, I always believed you never truly partied unless you woke up in another country with no recollection as to how you got there. I am glad this is now off my bucket list.
