Here at Hostelling International (HI), our two biggest loves are travel and music.

We thought what better way to share this love than by compiling our very own travel playlist for you all to add to your iPods, smartphones, or if you’re old school – your mp3 players!

With the help of our Facebook fans we have put together a fantastic mix of songs both old and new.

Listen to our “mixtape” and let these inspiring songs act as reminders to live in every moment as much as you can and reflect on what your travels have taught you.

Turn up the volume!

I used to take Patsy Cline with me, just Patsy, but those were the days when I could only justify bringing one tape with my Walkman in my backpack. She’s been to many HI hostels!
