Traveller's Tune

Anyone planning on keeping their sanity during bus journeys in Southeast Asia (where songs that all sound exactly the same usually play over and over again at maximum volume) needs to have a lot of patience and a fully charged iPod. Although I've complained about some of the bus trips I've taken while traveling, I really don't mind them most of the time. It can be a nice chance to sit back, relax, reflect on everything you've been doing or are about to do and listen to some music, especially feel good, travel-y type songs.

These are some of my favourite tunes to listen to on the road:

Mountain Sound - Of Monsters and Men

Down in the Valley - The Head and the Heart

Chicago - Sufjan Stevens

Ends in the Ocean - Avalanche City

In moments of fatigue or frustration, it can be easy to lose sight of why we travel but listening to these songs never fails to remind me that traveling is so worth it.
