Like someone else in this thread, my travel songs also remind me of where I've been:

We will rock you by Queen - canooing camp in 1991 in Parey/Germany

Lemon Tree by Fool's Garden - that rotten, waste of time school trip to the Czech Republic. Nobody had thought to bring any decent music, that was the only recent hit available, so it played on a constant loop for 4 days. To this day I hate that song with a passion.

Rabak Lam Yareed by Mohammed Mounir - Palestine. We only had MTV Libanon, and that video was on every ten minutes, I swear.

It's my life by Bryan Adams - the song came on the minute my bus left Jerusalem, and I realised that after 2 1/2 months of Palestine I would be in Israel for the next 3 weeks. It felt great to hear western music again.

Hands down, my favorite travelling music, esp on road trips, is Cake. Any Cake, but 'Sheep go to Heaven' and 'Race Car Ya-Ya's'. There's a song for pretty much any leg of a trip within those albums...

I actually have a genre called "Ship Songs" in my iTunes, all are songs that remind crew members of home/good times. Here's a few of the best:

Paradise City - Guns 'n' Roses
Joyride - Roxette
Country Roads - John Denver
Cruisin Together - Huey Lewis/Gwyneth Paltrow
Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams
Home for a Rest - Spirit of the West

Although any reggae or soca/latin song will quickly provoke wonderful memories of port days, spent on the beaches with a cool cocktail *sigh*

been experimenting with some of suggestions here i dont have specific songs but thought would add to the list

life for rent - dido

"I haven’t ever really found a place that I call home"

waves - hooverphonic

"These gigantic waves just take me
To an unknown destination
Under the moonlight
Feel free to join me on my trip.."

or

ray of light - madonna ...."And i feel like i just got home" lol

Try 'Ramble Tamble' by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
The guitar intro feels like the frenetic buzz you have when your have the backpack ready, documents in sweaty hand and you walk out the door worrying if you have forgotten something important.
The bestest feeling even after 34 years of doing that thang!!!

The first and second lines are :

"oohoo ooohoo, down the road I go"

A 7 minute classic!!

After that, try "Holiday In Cambodia" by the Dead Kennedys (my next destination).
Follow that by 'Won't Get Fooled Again" by the Who for virtually all the countries on the planet and you are home and hosed.
