Travels with Tavel, The Playlist

[NOTE: The Mystery Snapshots from the previous entry will be revealed in a separate posting with a little story about how sometimes a dream trip can turn into a travel nightmare… Stay tuned.]

Thank you EVERYONE who contributed one or more songs to this Ultimate Travel Playlist! I have put together the entire list and done something pretty awesome, if I do say so myself…

I have added a YouTube video for every single song, so you can listen by clicking each title below. I know, I know… I’m just TOO much! (Don’t ask how long it took me to put this together…)
