With European summer in full swing, we can almost smell the pizza and taste the countless colourful gelatos through our social media feeds. However, while some lucky few are getting their dose of much needed vitamin D, we are locking into hibernation with European tunes and book recommendations that will make your staycation just as enjoyable. Read the ultimate winter comfort guide below.
01. European Tunes

It Ends With Us
