After sampling eight whiskies, five wines and two rums, I have found a winner. £48. Bargain.

Southampton Boat Show. I have to wear paper booties so I don’t scratch up the yacht I couldn’t afford if I lived to be a billion.

Despite having lived in Southampton on and off for the best part of a year now, I have much of the town left to explore. It doesn’t take me long to find myself in an unfamiliar part of town and once I do I press on further, searching for a specific type of street.
