Road Trip Playlist

Welcome to Travel Thursday: Road Trip Edition!

I’m all about road trips, but haven’t taken one since moving from the East coast to the West in the US in 2010. One of my most favorite things about hitting the road for hours and hours, aside from the beautiful scenery and spending lots of time with the awesome people in your life, is listening to music. I’ve never made a playlist for a road trip, but I’ve been on a lot of them. I usually just put my iPod on shuffle and see what comes up. But certain songs are best for certain moods, and you go through a lot of moods on a road trip.

  1. haha wow some curious, intriguing and weird picks! So much nostalgia! I don’t know what it is with road trips and nostalgic old music haha In my family we used to have lots of Beatles, ACDC and Queens and lots of South American music for some reason. Not gonna lie that Backstreet Boys song brought me back haha


      • Ha! They probably do but not in my town… it’s a bit of a… redneck place. So we just did it in my friends living room until we passed out from wine overload… (not making myself sound any classier am I?)
