Road trip departure routine
You know the feeling! The van is loaded, everything is packed and well in place, everybody in it’s seat and ready for take-off….
There is a long road for the 1st stage before you stop and find a nice pitch to setup the van. After the usual double-check:
– “Did you put the alarm on honey?”
– “And did you let a key to the neighbors for the plants?”
OK time for a quick stop to fill the tank before really taking the road….
Turn up the volume!
Tank is full, family is ready, start the engine and go! And when you start cruising on the highway… you turn on the music and start playing your favorite songs! That moment is when holiday really starts!
The sound system is the second most important thing in a car after the engine. You can’t drive with bad sound or bad music…Anonymous road trip driver
And because it’s always great to discover some new music – just like discovering new places with your van 🙂 – we did some music research and found 6 playlists to enjoy while driving!
Bonus: we created a playlist with all the music we usually listen when on the road to share with you guys! The Explore Further playlist!
So it’s time to turn up the volume!
Playlist #1: Thelma & Louise Road Trip:
295 songs – 21h22min
From Dire Straits to AC/DC and…the Beach Boys, yeah that’s 20h of various rock songs more or less influenced by that classic movie. Please just don’t jump at the end OK?!
Playlist #2: Family Road Trip
65 songs – 3h55min
A short playlist to enjoy singing your hearts out with family titles :-).
Playlist #3: 70’s Road Trip
42 songs – 3h11min
As the title says, a very small selection of the best songs from the 70’s to make you happy while driving.
Playlist #4: Roadtrip singealong 2019
139 songs – 7h46min
Much more modern playlist with a melting pot of Pop, electronic and some rock songs. If you like variety….

100 songs – 6h50min
A great selection of 100 songs mostly rock songs from the 70’s to the 90’s.

Another short playlist but with only good classical rock songs for the road.

Our very own playlist made for you! Tested & approved during our last short trip in baie de Somme. We couldn’t not start the playlist with the fantastic song from Canned Heat “On the road again”. Push up the volume and think about the many miles ahead listening to great music!
