Travel through music

music, travel, quote, music and travel always go together, life, truth, duos, TS76, photography

They’re a dynamic and inseparable duo right?

Some songs that magically transport you to another land in seconds and others bring back great travel memories.

The following are travel songs that I absolutely love and never get tired of listening!

They instantly make me smile and feel so good πŸ˜‰

Watching the videos IS traveling as they were filmed in beautiful locations around the globe.

Sit back & enjoy!

The land down under – Men at Work

Such a fun, upbeat song from Oz! Do you come from the land under?


Kokomo – The Beach Boys

The perfect song when you want to escape the modern world and just be somewhere on an island, preferably with a drink in hand – this is an original video from the 80’s so forgive the quality πŸ˜‰


Africa – Toto

Images of Mt Kilimanjaro & Serengeti immediately to mind…gotta take some time to do the things we never had πŸ˜‰


Empire State of Mind – Jay Z & Alicia Keys

This is an ode to one of the greatest cities in the world. Love the beat & lyrics. Let’s hear it for New York!


Thank you for loving me – Bon Jovi

What a beautiful video filmed in the eternal city: Rome, Italy! Love the story πŸ˜‰


Te comencΓ© a querer β€œI started to like you’’– Tito El Bambino

I had to include a song in Spanish by one of my favorite singers and it has a special meaning for me. The video was filmed in ZΓΌrich, Switzerland and it is absolutely gorgeous!


I hope you enjoyed this musical tour around the world!

Which one (s) do you like best?

Is there a song that captured your heart and soul during your travels?

Let me know.

Lβ™₯ve always,

    • Thank you Sonja, they are CLASSIC! I was very young when those came out and trust me they are IT πŸ˜‰

      Can’t help but sing along and dance whenever I hear them he he

      Happy to know you enjoy them!


  1. This is so awesome! I love “Land Down Under” and “Africa”! πŸ™‚

    I always associate New York City with Simon and Garfunkel’s Greatest Hits album. I use to visit NYC a lot and would listen to this while riding the bus there; it just seems to fit. I listened to a lot of traditional Irish while there (well, and before I left) so those songs totally take me back.

    • Yes, the Men at Work song is just awesome!

      I have not heard the song you mention, Simon & Garfunkel 😦

      I’d love to listen to some of the Irish songs you mention, can you give me a title?

      Music will always live in our souls.

      Happy to hear that it brought great memories of the past πŸ˜‰

      • Sorry, Simon & Garfunkel are an American folk duo from the 1960’s. You probably know there songs “Sound of Silence” “The Boxer” and “Mr. Robinson”.

        For Irish music, I love The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, classic stuff:

        While in Ireland I saw Na Fianna in concert at a bar. They were awesome! They reinterpret traditional songs and sing originals. They actually won 2nd in the 2009 All-Ireland talent show. I have both of their CD’s and saw them tour in the US πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Ardun! Isn’t it just one of the greatest songs EVER?

      Yes that line is a definite classic!

      Every time I hear it on the radio or view the video, I just can’t help singing along and dance lol

      The scene where they jump like Kangaroos cracks me up. They make me cry of laughter no kidding πŸ˜‰

      The funniest thing is that I spent a month in Australia and I did not hear it, can you believe that?

      Nevertheless, whenever I want to remember my many adventures in New South Wales & Queensland, I just play the song and close my eyes and I’m there πŸ˜‰

      You better run, you better take cover!

      P.S: BTW eating a Vegemite sandwich is an experience, it’s an acquired taste!

      • Ha yeah many foreigners don’t like it but because we grew up with it we love nothing more than some vegemite and butter on toast πŸ™‚ There is a cool club in Perth which is near a few of the backpackers where you are guaranteed to hear that song at least once throughout the night.
        Let me know if you ever need some vegemite sent your way πŸ˜‰ It even comes in handy travel tube now like toothpaste.

      • Yes, I know how Aussies β™₯ vegemite!

        I was introduced to it in Sydney by the locals. It’s your kind of comfort food like peanut butter & jelly is for us πŸ˜‰

        I’ve to visit Western Australia next time & also the outback!

        Keep up the good work!

        K πŸ˜‰

    • Vielen Dank Claudi!

      Yes, travel and music are perfect and unforgettable companions!

      They keep you company during your journeys and they bring some sort of comfort!

      You also create great memories which you associate to a special song (s).

      I haven’t heard the song you mention yet…

      Ich werde had blog post auf Deutsch gelesen.

      Bis nΓ€chsten mal

      K πŸ˜‰
