Summer 2019 Vacation Playlist

It’s SUMMERRRRRRRRRR!

After these terrible rainy days that we can’t seem to get a long enough break from in NYC, I’m finally sitting down to share a playlist of 10 summer vacation-themed tracks! From basking in summer activities to traveling to your next vacay destination, this playlist is a fun mix of mellow and exciting.

Enjoy!

1. Holiday, Qveen Herby. Request that PTO and get ready to “put on your grass skirt and hula” all summer long.

2. Summertime Magic, Childish Gambino. Let the vacation festivities begin!

3. Cheapest Flight (Aluna George Remix), PREP. Already booked.

4. Swimming Pool Summer, Capital Cities. “Can’t escape the heat.”

5. Permanent Vacation, 5 Seconds of Summer. It has only just begun.

6. Frequent Flyer, Chromeo. Using up those frequent flyer miles this season.

7. Tuttifruitti, Phoenix. “We’ll be trashing motels.”

8. Flight Mode, Mr Sanka. Mood.

9. The Beach, Cannons. Here’s to letting go of that summer love that was never really worth it.

10. Glamorous, Fergie ft. Ludacris. A fancy little reminder to get on a plane back home once you’ve run out of vacation money.

Enjoy your summer vacation 😉

California Day 6: So Long, West Coast

Down on the West Coast, they love their movies
Their golden gods, and rock and roll groupies
And you’ve got the music, you’ve got the music in you, don’t you?

– Lana Del Rey

My final hours in California consisted of eating breakfast at the hotel and watching the morning news on ABC 7. We checked out a little after 10 a.m. in hopes of getting the rental car back in time to arrive at LAX by 11:30.

The traffic could have been worse. We managed through make it through security at 11. I had to go through twice because I had forgotten to finish drinking all the water in my aluminum bottle.

Oops.

There was a huge storm in the Northeast, so the flight was delayed for a half hour. The gate also changed about 4o minutes before we were allowed to board.

The flight back seemed shorter. My aunt ended up sitting in isolation two rows in front of my mom, dad, and I. If it were up to me I would have traded her for my dad, because he kept stealing my cheez-its.

We entertained ourselves with in-flight entertainment for the majority of the flight. The Castle rerun marathon was on TNT, so I was hooked for three hours before falling asleep.

I made sure to put my headphones back in before landing because the clogged ear life is not fun at all.

The runway was still wet when we landed at JFK, but the sky was clear. We made it home in a cab a little before midnight. I wasn’t as jetlagged as I thought I’d be the next day when I woke up for work.

Overall, I had a super fun time on the West Coast. I hope to visit again soon!
