I’ve spent hours carefully creating my Travel the music world playlist on Spotify, with over 100 awesome songs, from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers to Papa Kourand, The Beach Boys to Beirut and a bit of All Saints for good measure (seriously). If like me you’re saving all your pennies up, have a listen and let the music, not your wallet, take you to far flung places. You might even get some inspiration for your next adventure.
