[words by Narina Exelby]
Is there one song, one piece of music, that tugs at your heart, floods your imagination and turns your skin to gooseflesh? Eddie Vedder’s No Ceiling (from Into The Wild) is mine. Every time I hear it, I’m tempted to pack up all I have – forget about bonds and retirement annuities and next month’s deadlines – and to leave the familiar behind. It instills a need to explore. To feel. To live in the moment. To journey.
It also reminds me – whether I’m riding my bike to work, waiting at a bus stop or trawling a market – that while travel may be a physical experience, it can also be a state of mind.
I hope you turned up the volume.
