It’s hard to find a picture that does “music” justice, but this’ll do. I spent about 6 hours today, for the second time in a few days, sat on a coach ferrying pupils back from a canoeing trip. All well and good, but I get travel sick on coaches now after the robust stomach I had when I was backpacking seems to have left me. My stock solution is to:
- Recline as far back as I can (lying down is best)
- Zone out / sleep / doze / meditate
- Bang some tunes on my headphones
I remember coming back from the Gili islands some years ago on a very bumpy boat where 1 and 2 weren’t options due to the seating and bumpy ride. Number 3 – in particular Pantera’s Cowboys From Hell album on repeat – saved myself and my fellow passengers from a very chunky pebbledashing.
Despite having my eyes closed for umpteen hours, I still managed to lose myself in the likes of Machine Head, Sabaton, Falling In Reverse, Jupiter Falls, Body Count… Just check out my last.fm scrobble list for the full skinny.
