I’ve been thinking about doing a post like this for a while, so why not go ahead with it? Yeah! So I love music. Love, love, love music. So, in this post I will list songs that remind me of a certain trip, holiday, travel, yep. I like different kinds of music, but these days I tend to gravitate towards rock, music from the 70s and also more recent songs. I couldn’t possibly write a complete list of bands and singers I love, there are just too many. Some of my all time favourites are Fleetwood Mac, Roxette, Dire Straits, Phil Collins, Ilse Delange and heaps, heaps more!
The following few songs remind me of my time in Donnybrook, Western Australia. I was staying at a working hostel called ‘Brooklodge‘. These songs played a lot on the radio. I believe mostly the radio station ‘Triple J’ was on. I had a great time in that small town. I befriended some guys and we went on roadtrips, went to the movies. A bunch of us at the hostel would hang out, play card games or poker. There was a guy who could play the guitar. He was from Liverpool. One of the songs he could play and sing well was Yellow. It was an awesome fun month!
The following few songs were on the radio a lot as well during my time in Australia. Some of these I first heard on the radio when I was working in a fruit packing shed in/near Donnybrook. Not really music I listen to these days, but they made for good memories.
New Zealand and Australia 2005
The following couple of songs remind me of my second time Down Under. Especially the first song ‘Lifeline’ still means a whole lot to me.
In 2008, a friend and I went on an outdoorsy holiday to Venjan, Sweden together. The first song reminds me of our moose ‘safari’. I use quotation marks because it was basically a bunch of travellers cooped up in a bus, driving around in the rain, bumping along unsealed roads and not seeing a single moose! 😛
Since 2008, I’ve been back to beautiful Sweden a few times! It’s such a beautiful country and it’s also helped by the fact that my dear friend mentioned above now lives in Sweden *waves*. This next song is so catchy!
New Zealand 2012
Honestly, there’s only one song that really really stands out from my 2012 travel to New Zealand. The song is so catchy and awesome and uplifting and awesome! So much love for this song and the happy feeling I get when I listen to it and remember my amazing time in an amazing country!
That’s it for now. I’m curious, do certain songs remind you of a certain trip?
