Making me happy

A couple of years ago I discovered something that makes me very, very happy! I'd like to share this tip with you in case it also brings you more happiness.

Whenever I go on a trip- any trip, doesn't have to be a vacation or far flung or anything- I like to add a new song or album to my iPod. I listen to it over and over on my trip, and it becomes sort of an anthem. Whenever I hear it later, I am reminded of that vacation or location. The smells, the sights, the experiences. It is really really fun for me to associate music with a memory or spell of time.

Now after two years of doing this- when I shuffle my playlist I remember so many details about certain trips that I'm not sure I'd remember if I hadn't done it. Try it this summer on your vacations and tell me what you think!

Here are some trip albums I've purchased:

2013 Australia trip: album "Some Nights" by Fun!

2012 Singapore trip: Song "Let go" by Frou Frou

2011 France trip: album "The Story" by Brandi Carlile

2014 London trip: album "Ghost Stories" by Cold Play

2014 Kansas City trip: Divergent Sountrack

2012 Brazil trip: album "Vampire Weekend" by Vampire Weekend
