4 Travel Playlists to Change Your Experience

#travel #blogging #BackpackingBee #wanderlust #adventure #lifestyle #music #Spotify


When it comes to music, I can't get enough of it. I've listened to it all, including a weird phase in my life where scream-o was completely normal. After traveling solo for a bit, I realized how powerful music can be to add to the experience overall. When your surrounded by beautiful scenery, incredible people and rich culture, playing the right song might just be the thing to send you overboard into tears of happiness, never wanting the moment to end. Here are some of my absolute favorite playlists, which I've created according to seasons. Depending on the season you're traveling, I believe theres a different vibe to each. For more travel playlists feel free to message me and follow me on Spotify (the best app to ever walk this Earth in my opinion, & no I'm not even getting paid to say that).






| SUMMER |


In my opinion this is the season of gearing up to change, everything kind of comes together or falls apart this season, you either get busy trying to change your perspective or certain things in your life you've been unhappy with, or you're less busy and have time to think about what comes next. Either way things are changing. Which makes sense, Fall comes next and that's when everything moves, the leaves change colors and we're all heading to the next step in our life. This playlist is a positive one, a lot to do with sunshine and love but it doesn't necessarily mean with others, listening to this alone can be beneficial, maybe work on that self love you've been neglecting a bit?

It's my favorite time of year (says every girl out there I know I'm a cliche) and I can't help but think these are my absolute favorite songs to listen too as well. This is the time for soul music in every form, its cozy weather and recognizing how beautiful this time of change is.

| Winter Playlist |


Ah winter, the season of cozy-ing on up to the fire, listening to Christmas songs all day every day and enjoying the little things about life. It's a time of reflection for me usually, the people I'm grateful for, the places I've been to and who I've become to that point. These are all thoughts I ruminate over every year (okay more then that but especially during this time). I recognize that sometimes this time of the year can be hard for others and understand you are not alone, everyone is going through something and this time can be a reminder of that for some. You are loved and cared for, this is your reminder that keeping your heart and head up will only bring you gratefulness. It will get better.

| Spring Playlist |

Spring time is here and I kind of see this time as where things get a little crazy. Everyone blows off steam, you have things like spring fever, spring breakers, and whatever else is going on that I don't know about. It's a time of having fun, letting yourself live a little and enjoy some time with your people that you love. For me, sometimes it means taking a trip to see my family and friends, sometimes it means seeing a concert or going to a festival with my friends, whatever it is for you, live it up.
