20 Travel Songs To Get You Pumped For Your Next Trip

Music and travel go hand in hand like red wine and dark chocolate. There isn’t anything like walking onto a plane, taking a seat on a bus, or setting out on a road trip with your favorite tunes to help set the mood of your impending adventure. Some of these songs have a Portuguese or French influence, others more Indie, Electronic, and Alternative. Then there’s a song by the Flight of the Conchords because they make me laugh and I love them.
