Music For Travelers

There are certain songs that when when we hear take us immediately to certain place.  Have you ever wondered why we always listen to our MP3 or IPAD when we travel?  This is so because, music increases our desire to see a new place or simply to enjoy a journey with a friend or loved one.  In fact, through music, we can connect to other travelers even when we speak different languages.   

For me, it is always a pleasure to visit a place and indulge into good music.  Hearing good music played by those  musicians using their best epiphone prophecy les paul custom really entertains me.  

When I was in Cambodia last time, I usually hear songs being played whenever I eat in the local restaurants but Khmer songs are usually played and very seldom would you hear English songs, but I still  can relate to their kind of music just by appreciating the rhythm  and this what makes music unique as a way of interacting with people from other places.  As a matter of fact, I've learned to appreciate songs from other countries though I really never understand the message these songs convey.  I have a number of foreign songs of different language saved on my playlist and i used to listen to these from time to time.

Now that I'm back home after almost seven years of working abroad, I'm happy that I was able to understand other people's culture through their songs and for me, this is one kind of experience that I will never forget as a traveler.
