Have you ever got comfortable in your flight or train seat, reached for your earphones and then panicked because you realize that in the end moment packing hassle you forgot to keep them with you? We feel you mate.
Music, from my perspective, is one of the most important things about traveling.
There is a good reason I say that.
Music has the power to transport us; to the place, we are visiting/back home/ in somebodies arms/ to that memory you wished lasted a lifetime.
Music has the power to heal us or maybe pull us through that restless night or that broke day.
But most importantly, music is a universal language. You could be of any race or religion, speak any language, follow any tradition when Ludovico Einaudi plays his piano, everybody understands.
