The Definitive Travel Playlist

Lately I’ve begun to really, really want to go travelling, and I’ve also been listening to Spotify a lot. So I decided to combine my wanderlust with my Spotify obsession, and concoct the perfect playlist for travelling…

It’s made up of a mixture of songs – some are obviously to do with travel and places, some just make me feel summery and would be perfect for a road trip and some just feel like they fit the travel bill – whether it’s because of the mood (nostalgia, excitement, that feeling when you fall head over heels in love with a brand new place) or the lyrics, they just felt right. Enjoy! {listen on Spotify here}

Sorry, I seem to be physically incapable of compiling short playlists :/ ah well, this is now your definitive travel playlist :). Which songs do you like? What would you add? Where do you most want to travel to? (for me it’s got to be America, specifically NYC, or maybe Australia!) Let me know in the comments 🙂

    I’M PHYSICALLY INCAPABLE OF COMPILING LONG PLAYLISTS. XD It’s either 10 or 150 songs. (But the second type is mostly just divisions by genre.) I’m going away really soon so asdfjkl this will be great for fuelling my wanderlust! I just want to go everywhere eep.
