The Travel Playlist

So I decided to put my almost-degree in Songwriting to good use and make a bunch of playlists for all you travellers who love music as much as I do! First up we've got a playlist for when you just need to go :) Click through to listen!

I should probably mention at some point that I have an almost degree in Songwriting. And in the spirit of not putting the thousands of pounds I spent on it to waste, I’m going to do a collection of playlists themed around travel!

I mean, when you listen to music don’t you always get a vibe like ‘if I was on a beach party in Barcelona, this is what it would sound like” or “This song should be set to a gopro montage of a backpacker travelling in South East Asia.” … because I do, all the time!

Well… here it is. A travel playlist that goes from backpacking montage, to sunsets in Ibiza, to watching the northern lights in Norway, to a summer beach getaway, to driving down country roads. Something to motivate you to just GO!

(One more thing, this playlist is being constantly added to… so if you have any suggestions, I am BEYOND open to them. More open than a bar on NYE.)
