Reliving and Longing, Traveling Through Music

Recalling that trip makes me feel alive and brings me to the realization that it basically took a pandemic for me to relive those moments.

I know that writing about traveling right when we can’t will make us long for more. However, I also know that relieving our best travels or imagining future ones can bring us solace and hope, especially in times like these.


The best way for me to do so is through music.

So let me take you through a journey of emotions. Let’s press play.


Traveling is one of my greatest pleasures, and so far, Europe has proven to be a pretty enjoyable place to give voice to this passion. It’s straightforward to fall in love with so many different cultures and languages, all enclosed in what seems to be quite a small place compared to the U.S.


During high school, and now that I am at university, I have traveled in many different ways: from surfing couches to sleeping in a bus crossing different countries.

Each one of my travels had one common element: music.


The first song I want to introduce you to is “Paradise” by British indie/rock artist George Ezra.

This song immediately takes me back to Spring 2019, as I was standing in amazement in front of the majestic Prague Astronomical Clock, the third-oldest in the world. I relive walking the streets made of pebbles and the noise and shaking that would fill the air as I was riding with an electric scooter through some of the city’s oldest buildings.

I breathe in the smell of the sweet chocolate and custard pouring out from Trdelnik, the most famous sweet treat to try in Prague.


“If it feels like paradise running through your bloody veins, you know it’s love heading your way,” I was singing at George Ezra’s concert in Prague. In my case, that love was for traveling.
