Music for 7 provinces .... songs to explore Canada to in 2021!

Ever wonder what songs we listen to as we trek?  Well, the truth is that most of the time we are hiking and listening to birds or chatting to one another.  However at night when we are both working separately writing the blog or editing pictures we do listen to music that we have on us.  With each region and province that we venture through we add new songs to our track listings.

Starting in June of 2019, when we set out from Cape Spear Newfoundland, we released a provincial listing of songs that were our favorites that we had come to enjoy. 

As spring is here, and many might be headed outdoors for a bike ride, a jog, or hike we thought we would take opportunity to re-release our complete song listings – for the first 7 provinces – in case you were looking for some motivational music for your own mp3 players in 2021!

Enjoy!
