The Eagles - Journey of the Sorcerer

Written by Bill Yuksel, Dundee, Scotland -
For those of you who have read the guide, or rather listened to one of many contradictory versions of the story, aside from being 1000% more awesome than the average person you might recognise that this if the theme from “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show”.

Currently I am a student, living quite far away from the rest of my family which means I am often on long trains/coaches/car rides with little but music and other audio forms to entertain me. I think the Hitchhikers Guide in its many forms is a fantastic travel companion, and to this day insist it is the most important book one can read prior to going to university, but that is a topic for another time and place.

I enjoy the journey of the sorcerer when traveling as it makes me think about wonder that surrounds us when we are going from one place to another. One can observe some quite wonderful things from a window when traveling.

Traveling also often provokes a lot of different and sometimes confliction emotions. Often people are traveling to educate themselves, to see a friends and family or simply just for the adventure. I love traveling for many of my own reasons. If I had to pick one definitive piece of music as my ultimate travel theme the Journey of the Sorcerer would certainly be it.

Anyway that’s enough of my rambling I think I need to go and stop an interstellar by-pass from being built.

Bill is currently an undergraduate student at University of Abertay, Dundee
