Travel and music are two of the great passions of the vast majority. Or have you not noticed? If you ask who can live without music, some may say yes, but… can they stop listening to it while cleaning the house, making food or getting ready to start their day? The same goes for travel. Everyone loves to discover new places, walk new streets or photograph the beauties of big or small cities hidden on the map.
And … what will happen if we combine these two passions? Can you imagine traveling without music? We do not do it in Geranion Village. So today we have thought about what is the right music for a perfect trip and what kind of songs can not be missing from the playlist of your next trip.
Why listen to music on the go?
Traveling by car is not the same as taking a 9-hour flight, because you will cross half the world. In either case, a good playlist can help you with waiting times. While it is true that many times during the trip you want a little peace, we assure you that music can make your trip much more fun than just going out to discover new cities.
A study a few years ago confirmed something we are very clear about: driving with music creates a feeling of happiness. Imagine that you are in a traffic jam or you plan to drive for a long time. What could be better than a good song to accompany you?
The same goes for the long distances you travel for various reasons: to go on vacation, to see your family again, to meet a friend in another city or even in a country. Traveling alone is not uncommon, and in such situations, music can be your great travel companion.
What is the best music for travel?
Like everything in this life … it depends on everyone’s taste. Of course, music is important for everyone and it is not wrong to say that many times the musical style determines one’s personality. Take a look at a person’s latest playlist and you will come across it.
Now, imagine that you are going to organize a group trip and go by the same car to a destination that is a little far. We do not want to argue about who chooses the music playlist during the trip, so ideally create a playlist with the best music for travel. Here are some tips that will not fail!
The great classics
You may not be a big fan of the entire Queen, AC / DC or Pink Floyd discography but there are songs from these bands that you know well. Or not; If we make you listen to songs like “We Rock You”, “Highway to Hell” or “Wish you were here”, we do not need to associate which band each song belongs to because you know it well.
In the same way that songs resonate in your mind now, it will happen on a group trip and all the passengers in the car end up singing out loud even if they only know the chorus. Guaranteed fun!
Seasonal songs to enliven the holidays
If you are going to travel for Christmas, there is nothing happier about these dates than Christmas carols. Why not include them in your travel music list? If you are traveling with children, you can enjoy the classic Christmas carols, they will definitely enjoy it!
If the trip is more focused on a young audience, even adults, choose other types of songs that remind you of Christmas. Mariah Carey? In the list! George Michael? Undoubtedly!
Travel with the music of your memories
It does not matter if you are traveling alone or with friends. Include songs in the playlist that remind you of old times. If you travel alone, you will definitely end up laughing when you see yourself dancing to a song in the car. The fun increases if you travel with others, and you can remember for a long time a moment in which a particular song led you.
From now on, the choice is personal. We can not say that there are “100 best songs to travel”, because there would certainly be some that do not suit your musical tastes. However, if you have these little tricks in mind, we assure you that you will be able to create a travel playlist that you will want to hear again and again on your travels from now on.
In addition, if you are thinking of making a travel diary, the soundtrack of your vacation is very important! You can include short verses of your favorite travel song between the notes of the diary.
