What is the most important thing without which your journey feels incomplete or boring? A very easy question to answer. No rewards if you have got that right in your mind. Yes, it’s your iPod, cd player or mobile. I hope you all agree on this one? There would hardly be any person who doesn’t listen to songs while travelling.
Music and Travel are connected to each other like our soul is to our body. There’s a song for every mood and emotion that a traveller is in. There are plentiful songs about road trips. For your pre-excitement to start a journey, on the way fun, partying on reaching your destination, keeping yourself motivated to complete a trek, sitting alone in quietness and observing the nature or in any other mood, there are songs for all of it.
Music boosts up the adrenaline to see a new place and uplifts our mood. It is a good way to share your feelings and thoughts with fellow travellers. You can connect with others through songs even if you don’t know someone or their language. You will always find someone who will share the sam taste of songs that you have.
Songs always connect us to a particular place or person and take us back in time.
