One more week at works, thats all.  One more week and then I’m off, back on the road again and travelling, what a feeling.  I’m only going to Ireland for 10 days or so, but that feeling of getting out of London and into backpacker mode again is always great!  I realise this blog isnt the most consistent when it comes to regular travelling stories, but unfortunately thats all part of working the 9-5 and having to pick and choose very carefully when it comes to using up my presious annual leave.  Here’s what I’ve chosen to ‘spend’ 7 of my days leave on, looks a pretty epic journey around Ireland huh!?

Anway, enough of the 9-5 woe is me stuff, in this post I am seeking your help.  You see I’m roadtripping Ireland with the mrs and a couple of mates, so naturally we need some awesome driving music to accompany us.  This is where you guys come in, how about helping a backpacker out and suggesting some cool driving songs that will make our travelling experience that much better?  Oh go on.

I’ve made a start, but there’s till loads of room on our playlists for your chosen tunage.  Any and all opinions are welcome.  In my head travel and music will always have a strong link.  How often you hear someone asy “Oh this song reminds me of … “.

So please, give us a song or two to remember Ireland by …
