"The good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain". What is a pain however is finding yourself with a dazzling sunset poolside, with friends and cocktails, and be left with just 2 choices. Listen to nothing at all (what is a sunset without a soundtrack), or request a part time hotel DJ to play something in the hope the playlist isn't years out of date and stolen from a Now That's What I Call Music compilation CD.
Every sunset deserves a soundtrack, every journey deserves a jam. The best travel speaker to add some bass to the party is without doubt the WonderBoom. Water resistant and pocket friendly, paired with some roller-skates you're a club on wheels!
