This probably happens to you from time to time – you hear a certain song and your mind rewinds right back to a specific moment of your life. Nothing screams “Roadtrip” more than the ultimate playlist. Even though we all come from different corners of the globe many of us end up rocking out to the same tunes. I can’t stress enough the importance of having the perfect soundtrack for your vacation. Before you leave on your next TrekAmerica trip I highly suggest spending some quality time putting together a compilation of your all-time favorite songs.
Our vans are equipped with killer sound systems and if every other tour leader is as nice as me they will let you be the resident DJ for a few stretches of the journey. Try to make a few different playlists and let your imagination run wild. Here are a few themes to inspire you: Country Road on a Sunny Day, Summertime Seaside, A night on the Town, Won’t let the Rain drag us Down.
So you get the idea – this is your time to shine! You can rock out from your iDevices and if you’re feeling old school you can even bring a few CDs along for the ride. Here are the top 10 most played songs from my last trip – Canadian Parks West – May 30th departure. Special thanks to an amazing crew of Trekkers / DJs, you guys rocked!
