There are songs that inspire us to travel, and then there are songs that cause us to stop, drop everything and run toward the nearest airport at full speed.
We asked HuffPost readers, editors and avid travelers to name songs that ignite their senses of wanderlust. The result is a playlist of travel songs so good, they’re basically vacations in themselves. Just press play to take a break at your desk, on a walk or before bed.
Do these songs have you itching to take a trip? Feel free to sign up for HuffPost’s 30-Day Take A Break Challenge, and we’ll help you get there.
