    "The Best Way to Travel" is a 1968 song by the progressive rock band The Moody Blues. Written by keyboardist Mike Pinder, it was released on the album "In Search of the Lost Chord". The song's lyrics throughout the song explain in different ways how "Thinking is the best way to travel."

    "The Best Way to Travel" is also unusual for the Moody Blues, due to the fact that the lead acoustic guitar is played by Mike Pinder, rather than Justin Hayward, the Moody Blues' principal guitarist. In turn, the mellotron, which is normally played by Pinder, is played by Hayward.

    Personnel

    * Justin Hayward: mellotron
    * John Lodge: bass guitar
    * Mike Pinder: vocals, acoustic guitar
    * Ray Thomas: flute
    * Graeme Edge: drums, percussion
