Here’s a playlist that I created for myself (and for you to enjoy too, ahem 😉 ) with music that I heard on my recent adventure in Miami which, by the by, is my favorite place in the world. This playlist also has music from my own collection that sounds like Miami to me.
I’ve been playing music from this playlist every day since I left Miami and I get to re-live my Miami adventure every time I do. Oh yeah! If you wanna re-live a travel adventure, I highly recommend creating a travel-inspired playlist for your vacation spot like I wrote about here.
Here’s a little more about the playlist:
There is a variety of genres on this list. There are some party songs, some reggaeton, some quintessential salsa songs, some Ricky Martin, some Shakira. All to evoke images of sparkling ocean waves, swaying palm trees, balmy summer nights, Latin flavor and that South Beach energy. I chose songs that captured my Miami, the Miami I experience (can you tell I visit as often as I can?) as well as songs that I actually heard there – from my room at the Avalon Hotel, from walking around South Beach and from dancing the night away in Mango’s Cafe.
And let’s be clear, lovelies, just like I say about about any playlist I create, it’s not just a list of songs slapped together, willy-nilly. I arranged them specifically in this order to maximize listening pleasure. Also usually my posted playlists are 20 songs but I loved making this one so much that there are 32 songs. I couldn’t help myself and I could just keep going. Did I mention Miami is my favorite place in the world?
