    Lyrics or Poetry that Inspire Travel

    I posted something similar to this a couple years ago, but that was a call for songs and playlists. What lyrics or lines of poetry do you find yourself humming or thinking about when the urge to travel hits? I've been in Mexico for about 7 months and I'm eager to move on. Here's what I've got...

    Hitchin' Denver to California: What Could Go Wrong? (Pt. 5)

    I awoke at around 7am in the basement of a house that my friend Tiff had been renting. It was almost cozy enough to fight off the call of another day on the road. Almost. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I super didn't want to take a fucking bus all the way to Las Vegas. I...
