What would travel be without the perfect playlist? Somehow the right tunes have a way of making an amazing trip even better. Vancouver-born, New York-based Alex Merrell (pictured below), who has traveled from St. Barth’s to Sweden DJing events for clients like W Hotels, Vogue, and Louis Vuitton, knows a thing or two a soundtrack with a sense of place. Here, her top musical accompaniment for trips to Jamaica, Australia, and the French Alps.

Spending approximately 200 days a year on the road not only inspires Alex's musical mixology, it also led her to create The Remarkable Explorers Club, a social networking app that connects groups of friends who are also frequent travelers through shared travel calendars and socially curated city guides. TREC will launch in the app store next week.
