At the same time, you may not love all of this music on your playlist, there will definitely be enough to keep you entertained, motivated and enjoying the hiking or traveling that little bit more.

While you want to enjoy your favorites hiking or traveling song, others people may not love to hear them. Don’t be one of those persons who play songs through their speakers, like ‘teenagers’ do on the back of the bus, and don’t forget to buy a good pair of headphones.
If you’re using your smartphone or iPod to listen to music when hiking or traveling, then just be careful of your phone or iPod charge. The last thing you want is to check your GPS ,maps or some emergency calls and find your battery charge is on less than 10%, so use your phone carefully or take a portable charger with you so it can give you some backup charge.
