We often talk about the colours of autumn and how the yellowing treetops turn into the brown of fallen leaves. Or the smells of autumn – the smell of wet soil, for instance– which permeate parks and woods after the first rains. But what about the sounds of autumn? What do October, November and December sound like?
Discover the soundtrack of autumn this October with our list of options for listening to and enjoying the season’s sounds. Does that sound good to you?
- Take off for the weekend and lie next to a riverbank. Now rivers are swelling, you could spend all day listening to the water rushing and tumbling.
- If it starts to rain, which is pretty likely in October, you can snuggle down with a blanket at home or in one of our suites and listen to the pitter patter of the rain on the windowpanes. Nothing’s quite as relaxing as the sound of rain!
- Look for a clearing in the woods, away from the noise of cars and houses. Close your eyes and let yourself be blown away by the whistling of the wind and the rustling of leaves and branches.
- Come on, own up: after summer’s over you’re really quite partial to staying at home on a Friday night once in a while. Don’t feel guilty about it though, because it can be a good time to get into a sound you hadn’t heard for months: the sound of the popcorn you’re gobbling as you watch a film.
- And wherever you go, you can take our playlist of autumn favourites on Spotify to put you in an autumn mood.
Autumn’s definitely a season to take in with all your senses including your ears, because it’s only common sense to enjoy every last detail of what life has to offer.
Now October’s almost here, listen to what autumn has to say!
