Travel can broaden the mind and give you memories that’ll last forever. The trick is in finding ways to properly immortalize these travel memories so that they truly stay with you forever. Here, we’ve curated some of the best ways to properly
Write a travel journal
This is a great way to capture your thoughts and feelings about your trip as it happens. You can write about your impressions of different places, the people you met, and any memorable experiences you had. It’s usually best to do this on the trip itself rather than afterward so that the memories are fresh on the page. You can use a physical journal, especially if you’re doing off the grid. Or, use you tablet or phone to record your journal entries.
Take lots of photos
Photography is a fantastic way to remember your travels. Make sure to take a mix of candid shots and posed photographs to capture the essence of your trip. You can ask people to take pictures, but make sure they’re trustworthy. At the end of your trip you can curate the best of your photos into photo books that you can keep forever. Storing them in this way is much better than just keeping them digitally. You can flick through the photo books whenever you want and they’ll always look better in person than digitally.
Souvenirs and mementos from your trip can serve as physical reminders of your travels. These might include ticket stubs, maps, or small trinkets you picked up along the way. You need to try and keep these in a safe place while you’re traveling so you don’t lose or forget them on the way. Also, make sure they don’t get damaged by the rain or elements. These can stay with you for a long time and along with your photo books, help you remember your trip.
Create a scrapbook
A scrapbook is a fun and creative way to document your travels. You can include photos, ticket stubs, maps, and other mementos, along with handwritten notes and captions. It’s an amalgamation of mementos and photos in one. You put them all together. This can take some time but it can really help immortalize the experience when you can look back at the mementos and photos at the same time.
Share your experiences with others
Talking about your travels with friends and family can help you remember the details of your trip and keep the memories alive. You could also consider blogging about your adventures or creating a video or photo slideshow to share with others. This is pretty popular now, so you will have to do something special to try and stand out. Sharing travel experience help you relive the amazing times you had, you just have to make sure you know how to vlog, or to write engaging copy.
Traveling is amazing and if you can find a few ways to remember the experience so that they stick with you for the rest of your life, you should do it. This is especially the case if you don’t travel that often.
