Twelve hours on an overnight bus with people talking in front of you makes an iPod every bit the best investment a traveler can make.
Turn it on, tune in, and drown out voices as you drift off to sleep.
But my iPod serves another function- it helps me remember.
Music is a part of the human condition. Besides helping me pass time, it helps me remember moments on the road, moments in life, why I traveled, places, and people.
When I need some encouragement, I have a song.
When I’m forlorn, music helps me through it.
Music not only defines emotions but people and places.
Whenever I hear that Swedish song, I think of my time with a great group of Swedes and that night we played card games on Ko Phi Phi.
Whenever I hear Augustana, I remember home.
Love Generation brings back my first full moon party where I met people whose wedding I ended up attending the following year.
So turning on my iPod isn’t just about listening to my favorite bands, its about taking me back to place I haven’t been to in a long time – Nomadic Matt
