With This Spotify Playlist, You Too Can Be a Tour-Guide DJ

When I was a small boy, my dad and I "invented" something we called "stereo ears" -- if you cup your ears at a concert, you hear a much broader array of sounds and more vivid highs.

If you like music, it can be a great part of your travels. For this tour, Trish and I collected fun and instructive cuts of music, organized them to match our Best of Europe in 21 Days tour itinerary, and posted a playlist titled "Rick Steves Europe Tour" on Spotify. All along the way we're plugging our iPhones into our big bus' sound system and enjoying our expanded roles as tour-guide DJs. If you're traveling along our route (the Netherlands, Germany, Alps, Italy, more Alps, France, and Paris), feel free to use this list to inject some location-specific music into your travel fun. (What cuts might you add if it was your tour?)

Happy (and musical) travels!
