I didn’t think abut how hard it would be to keep up on daily prompts for the 30 Days of Indie Travel travel writing series while I was traveling (how ironic, right?). This is a series sponsored by Boots N All on the topic of travel and I am currently traveling with no laptop, I was out and about yesterday and did not think about how it might be inconvenient to try to blog from my iPad.
But alas, despite being a day late, here is the prompt from yesterday: Music and travel memories often go hand in hand. A song can inspire our explorations, or it can take us back to a specific place and time. Tell us about your travel playlist and what it means to you.
In all honesty, music is not a huge part of my life. But having said that there are of course songs that evoke memories. Most of them I have already written about in the brief series I did called Music Memory Monday.
Most of my music memory repetoire are old songs that I listen to from time to time. It is very rare that I add no songs to my playlist, but some are addded. In the past year I have added two Lady Antebellum songs as well as Daughtry and Nickelback, but most of my playlist consists of Bruce Springsteen, Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, etc.
Would you find it weird that I have a song associated with a future trip to a place I have never been to so that I can meet a person I know only online? Well, I do! I associate the song “Photograph” by Nickelback to Jennifer James of Memoirs of a Dutiful X’er. The song “reminds” me of her despite the fact I haven’t yet!
How about you? Do you have songs associated to travel?
