[PLAYLIST] Tropicana Calypso
Packing for holidays is one of those things I both love and hate. I'm so used to living out of a bag and constantly being on the move that it should be a no-brainer, which I guess is why I often leave it to the last minute (there have been times where I have literally thrown my passport and whatever clothes were in reach and ran out the door with the mindset that I could just buy a toothbrush/underwear/whatever I'd forgotten at the other end).
When I was backpacking Europe with my two friends, we had a packing ritual; we would sit on our hostel room floor, pour a cup of fine Italian boxed wine, and cheers to the notion that 'you can't pack without a glass of wine in your hand'. Today, seeing as it is still a thoroughly unacceptable time to pour myself a wine, but mostly because I polished off the bottle last night so there is none left, I have chosen to make myself a playlist of holiday music to get me through the packing experience.
I may be heading to the sunny shores of San Jose Del Cabo, but I think this playlist applies to anywhere that's lush, tropical, and sunny. Pull up a hammock, lather on some suncream, and pretend you're coming on holiday with me.
