I don’t travel often, but when I do I always make sure to have the perfect playlist ready to blast in the car. My playlists include a combination of old school jams, latest hits, and unknown treasures, that are guaranteed 100% good vibes from start to finish.
Whether your road trip is planned or spontaneous, this travel playlist will be the perfect accompaniment to your journey. I have carefully curated this playlist with a combination of songs, some that will make your hips move, and others calmer and more laid-back, but all sure to get you into the wandering spirit!
