There are some fantastic recommendations in there, just hope Dubai’s Virgin Megastore has them in stock, enjoy

you heard Kaizers Orchestra? Violeta Violeta is a wicked album, maybe in the bus music? Fourtet’s album Rounds for on top of the bus. Bit of the Shins (wincing the night away)/Broken Bells for the evening? I’ll think of some more!

in fact, what about fourtet for in the bus, fourtet on the bus and fourtet for in the eves? But defo some fourtet for the chilling – ‘There is love in you’ is an outstanding album. Bonobo’s ‘Black Sands’ is some great chillin to.

Queens of the stone age has been on a lot for a while now. Going to see 30 seconds to mars on friday in Abu Dhabi which will be my first proper gig since Leeds and then also going to see the Streets on the 18th on the beach at Barasti which will be fantastically weird.

Latest Underworld album is really good. James Blake is very chilled, if a bit leftfield. Elbow’s new one is out today.

Get a 160gb IPod an you can take everything you can beg borrow and download. The genius mix does exactly what it says on the tin!

Dunc- Sounds good, added to the shopping list
John- I have a 160Gb classic that’s superb, love it. But just brought one of the new nanos for this trip. Its obscenely compact and light, makes the classic feel like a brick. 24hr music play back battery life too!!! Current dilemma is whether to take my X Mini speaker.
We’re planning to do a series of short river trips but wont be returning to a base so will be living out of our boats which means being really frugal on kit and weight

AC/DC for when ur on the go 😉

ahhhhh, ACDC’s “If You Want Blood You’ve Got It” saves me up to 10% driving time on a typical journey but costs quite a bit in speeding fines 😦

Tuesday at 14:15 · Like
2 week kayak trip, several short 2 and 3 day trips rather than the longer 8 to 10 day big water runs on the Kanarli or Sun Kosi

surely the music blaring out of the bus radio is an integral part of going to Nepal?
Tuesday at 14:56 · Like
It is integral for sure but then so are leeches, sun burn and the shits. Anyone in their right mind wants to minimise the exposure to all. Last thing I want to do is blare Bollywood sound tracks out of my ipod headphone too 🙂
