A lot of people either love or hate traveling. All the luggage, the crowds, weaving through a sea of other lost travelers and all this only to find out your flight was delayed or canceled. I on the other hand chose to romanticize traveling. Making up stories in my head of where each person is on their way to— first time visiting home with your new baby, taking the red eye to surprise your girlfriend, a retired couple visiting their favorite city, or a mid 20’s solo trip across the world to really find who your are in this world.
All of these scenarios are pretty cliché I know that, but if you’re like me and you simply think (a lot), then traveling is the holy grail of times to sit and do just that. As I take long plane rides quite regularly, I’ve come to know the tiny, glittering, twinkling lights below to be insistingly beautiful and romantic and calm in all of the chaos.
This playlist perfectly intertwines the new and the old of many genres and encapsulates my perfect mood when i’m headed onto a new adventure, or back somewhere warm and familiar.These songs elicit my best thinking, allow me to sleep I want, and still keep me pumped for my journey ahead. Introspectively reflective yet hopeful and endearing.
On your next plane ride or road trip whether it’s a short flight or a long car ride, do some thinking and take these tunes along for the ride.
