Our Soothing Playlist For Nervous Fliers

Music has the incredible power of setting the tone for our experiences. A free-spirited song for your perfect road trip with the windows down, an ethereal mix for a quiet walk in the woods… music is the divine element that can transform and elevate our mindset. And that’s why having the perfect, soothing playlist for nervous fliers is imperative. 

As a former nervous flier, there are certain prerequisites I need to truly feel ready to tackle a trip abroad an airplane. And one of them? A soothing mix of music that I can turn to. It might be a small trick, but I can’t tell you how thankful I am to have a familiar, calm song to listen to when my heart starts racing. (You can read about my other biggest tips and tricks for overcoming the fear of flying here!

Today, I’m happy to say we’re sharing the love for other nervous fliers out there. Here’s our playlist “Mid Air, Mid Flight” – made specifically to soothe the worried soul, no matter how turbulent the conditions may be. Think slow, calming songs that have messages of hope, peace and wonder… the type of music that feels like a warm hug.

If you missed our other playlists, we’re spotlight our favorite pieces of music for other Dame Travelers on Spotify. And that’s why we’re sharing monthly playlists dedicated to specific destinations and travelers’ experiences. 

We really love making these for you all to “escape to” whenever you like. So, be sure to subscribe and tell us what playlist styles, genres and destinations you’d like to see next!


Dame Traveler’s March Playlist: La Bella Vita, An Italian Escape

What plays in a traveler’s headphones on a long journey is one of the most personal, sacred things in the world. I truly believe it. Music has the divine power to transform the ordinary to the magical, the mundane to the mystifying, and the long road ahead to an epic adventure. Believe me, I’m pretty sure we’d all go a little bonkers without our headphones and an excellent playlist to pass the time and to set the mood on a long flight!

One of our goals for the new year is to create playlists to set the mood of far off destinations for you. Whether you’re getting inspired for your upcoming vacay, you’re just missing your experiences and getting nostalgic or need a pick me up while cooking dinner, pop on one of our destination-based Spotify playlists… and you’re there! Sound like something you’d like? Great!

Each month, we’ll be spotlighting one of our Spotify playlists we’ve been curating for you. Be sure to give us a follow and download the destination’s you love most!

This month, we’ve created a playlist exemplifying the romance, and the lush, slow evenings of Italy’s “la bella vita.” Feel the warmth of the Tuscan sun, get ready for romance and classic Italian charm! There’s no place in the world like Italy… but we sure hope this playlist will transport you right there, no matter where you are right now. Happy listening!

We really love making these for you all to “escape to” whenever you like. So, be sure to subscribe and tell us what playlist styles, genres and destinations you’d like to see next!
