The Lexingtonienne



My friend Sydney is taking a two-week vacation to Thailand (raise your hand if you’re jealous), and she asked if I had any suggestions for travel music. Do I ever.

But with the holidays coming up, Sydney isn’t the only one packing her suitcase. Hubba Bubba, Eleanora, and I – like many others – are among those who will be in the air and on the road this Thanksgiving. While I realize some folks can’t resist starting the Christmas music on November 1 (present company secretly included), here is a non-holiday, anytime travel playlist for those who aren’t quite ready for holiday carols… and for those needing a break from Jingle Bell Rock.

    I am commenting to let you know of the fabulous encounter my cousin’s daughter experienced reading your site. She even learned many issues, not to mention what it’s like to have a wonderful giving mindset to have many people just grasp chosen grueling subject areas. You really exceeded our expectations. Many thanks for distributing the informative, healthy, educational and as well as easy thoughts on the topic to Jane.
