Traveling by car is a different kind of experience. No hurries, driving outdoors in the middle of nature, deciding your route, when and where you will arrive. It is freedom and the genuine way to travel, in direct contact with the environment, whether crossing solitary regions and splendid landscapes or towns and cities.
Spotify lists can create an atmosphere of adventure, fun or romance with a good soundtrack for your trip. All this without the need for wifi or Internet connection.
