A Head Full of Dreams by Coldplay

With upbeat tracks to get your heart pumping, Coldplay’s latest album will be a great accompaniment to your spontaneous outdoor adventures.

Make Out by LANY

For when you’ve fallen in love with a total stranger on your travels and need music to capture your emotions of longing, pleasure, kilig, and melancholy.

Wilder Mind by Mumford and Sons

This album is best listened to when, after the thrill over experiencing the sights and sounds of a foreign country has died down, you realize how incredibly lonely you are.

E•MO•TION by Carly Rae Jepsen

Her blood pumping, confidence-boosting dance tunes will drive you to put on a brave face and take on the strange streets on your own. A great album for throwing out all caution and carefully made plans to the wind.
