Monday Mixtape: A Traveler’s Playlist
In between activities planned for the duration of the trip, there are moments when you put your headphones on and get lost in your songs. While I’m not the type to listen to music while hiking or absorbing the views, I seek comfort in my music during plane rides, a night in a strange room, a boring three-hour boat ride to an island, or a long commute from one city to another.
Such moments call for a playlist of dream & synth pop, ambient, and electronic, leaving my usual alternative rock playlist forgotten. I like the quiet, dreamy music, or what zen-like song allows me to take in the views.
