I find both music and travel are both quite personal experiences and when there is a moment or time where they can merge together it can create something pretty special. I listen to a lot of music when I go travelling and sometimes the experience is so special that the song sticks with that travel event as a memory. So I thought it would be nice to visit that topic and talk to you over the next few weeks about just some of the magical musical moments I have had on my adventures.
Location : Switzerland
Song: Teenagers & Rituals, Angels & Airwaves
Snow everywhere, the cold air surrounds me as I wrap up tighter in my coat and scarf. As I look out the window, trees, mountain tops and houses snowed in fly past, sort of like a snow globe when it has been shaken as the snow lightly dusts the rooftops as it falls all around.
Whenever I listen to Angels and Airwaves album The Dreamwalker, these are the images that I think of when I listen to any of the tracks from it. In 2014, we travelled 2000 miles around Switzerland in the Christmas time and New year by train and in that time, as you can imagine, there was a lot of travel from A to B.
I really used to enjoy some of the long journeys by playing music and just looking out at the scenery as it was so breathtaking and I didn’t want to miss any of it. Having music playing whilst watching the phenomenal views made it all that magical.
One track that I used to listen to a lot off of the Dreamwalker album was the song Teenagers & Rituals as it went so well with the views. The piano creates this magical feeling to the world going by and the tempo of the track just went so well with the speed of the train creating this wonderful atmosphere. I made a video when I got home with this song on it so I would always remember the ,agic that it created and became a lasting memory.
