A Travel playlist makes my travels.
A good playlist is essential.
If you’re anything like me you can’t even walk to the shop without your earphones in. If you forget them, you inwardly sigh.
Bus, tram, train, boat and plane journeys are ten times better with your favourite songs playing, or when you’re delving into a new and unexpected album your friend recommended to you.
Certain songs do remind me of certain places, and I love that.
Songs take me back to a certain place or get me excited for my next place.
A song tells a story, and can be interpreted in many different ways, and that is why I thought I’d make a compilation of my ultimate travel playlist to share with you all.
When I say travel playlist, don’t expect the usual songs that have travel in the title, or are all based around travel. No, my playlist is just a playlist to listen to on your travels, on the bus from the airport, sat in your hostel room, in bed planning your next adventure.
Some of these songs may relate to travel, others brighten my day, some make me ponder, a lot make me look out the window of a train and imagine I am in the music video, the rest are just really good songs.
So in no particular order, here it goes.
1. Ben Howard- Old Pine
