Music Pairing: Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root, a great travel song. Me Gustas Tu by Manu Chao (this song was an international hit especially amongst travellers, the artist sings in many languages). Take Me Home Country Roads by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole (aka IZ) or Toots & The Maytals (the irony of a song about home--in the US, not wandering, but when it’s a cover it becomes about Hawaii & Jamaica respectively, a reminder that there are many nations, cultures & homes, wanderlust draws us to these. “Whiskey in the Jar” by Metallica or
Metallica - Wherever I May Roam . “Tumbleweed” by Afroman, just because. “Lust for Life” by Iggy Pop: lame wanderLUST reference, but an awesome song with a clear passion for life. “Red, Red, Wine” by Bob Marley. Jammin by Bob Marley. “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen, for its mix of musical & cultural influences. “Wonderlust King” Gogol Bordello. https://soundcloud.com/wearegalantis/peanut-butter-jelly “At Last” by Etta James.
Life Pairing: Being adventurous, traveling, camping under the stars with your lover, good conversation by the campfire. A bbq with friends & family on a lazy Sunday. Don Draper in a steakhouse lounge.
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”

“When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.” — Doctor Who
Or: “This is one corner… of one country, in one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see.” — Doctor Who
“I’m gonna die with a twinkle in my eye, because I sung songs, spun stories, loved, laughed and drank wine” -The Cat Empire, The Wine Song
