vtravelled Playlist: Down Under Beach Barbecue

by andrew January 2011 - last edited February 2013 by Community Manager

Since we posted about our exciting new code-share agreement with Air New Zealand, we've been dying to get away from the grey and enjoy some down under summer sun.

Our perfect antidote to British winter right now would be a barbecue on the beach with the beer flowing, in the kind of relaxed atmosphere only Australasia provides. Our soundtrack is a mix of antipodean anthems and chilled classics to enhance the mood.
