Mixtape: Globetrottin’

Mixtape: Globetrottin’
This is a mix for all the world travellers/explorers/globetrotters living the vagabond life. The first 10 songs are the places you’ll visit, where you’ll drink cheap wine and speak Spanglish fluently, go on pub crawls and cliff dive, search for schnitzel stands and get horrible sunburns. Side B is all about the tunes that will get you through your voyage, no matter what continent or tiny village you’re travelling through. This is a particularly useful playlist for when you get stranded in the French Riviera, when you spend an entire day on a train just to make it to Venice by nightfall, when you’re cruising down Route 66 and when you just missed the last bus out of town.
Happy trails, my little explorers of the world.
