Have you ever found yourself in a moment where you’ve heard a song and it’s instantly transported you back to a specific time, place or event?
I had one of these moments the other day, and upon hearing the song it sent me zooming back, to a day in 2001 when I was sat perched on a bench, at the back of a Greek Island ferry. All of a sudden I was sun drenched, brown as a berry, and a slightly naive 21 year old again, out exploring the big wide world of ours.
What was the song? Nelly, ‘ride wit me’. You know the one (Hey, must be the money!)’.
‘eeeeeeeeek’ tragic i know and definitely NOT one of my finest musical moments (I do pride myself on having a decent taste in music), but it DID get me thinking about how music is basically a time machine to past experiences and while you can’t be on holidays all the time, you can attempt to re-live some of those epic moments at the push of a button.
And that’s why MUSIC is my ultimate and must have travel accessory.
