Travel tunes: Our ultimate guide to some easy listening, on the road

Whether you’re gliding down a river, floating above the clouds in a metal bird or leaving dusty roads behind, music makes a great companion

Music and travel have a tantalising relationship. These two go hand in hand like Brad and Angelina on the sets of Mr. and Mrs. Smith (who knew they’d get a divorce). Music is quite an addiction for most of us where it’s impossible to leave the house without an IPod or music providing device. Good music can quite easily transport you to your happy place, engulf you in its world and leave you spellbound wanting the sensation to never end. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of what we think make the perfect companions for a “feel good” travel journey. If nothing, these suggestions are guaranteed to awaken the inner free spirit in you and encourage you to pack those bags and head out.

Warning: Some of these are classic clichés but we just couldn’t help ourselves.
