It is usual for people on vacation to take lots of pictures. By snapping photos after photos, we somehow feel like we are doing something more to preserve the precious moment and capture scenic sights. Although collecting snapshots is indeed a good way to keep a trip alive in our minds, there is no harm in trying other creative ways to make our travel more memorable. If your most recent trip is something that is for the books, you may wish to try other cool ways to help you remember it. Listed below are a few suggestions.
Create a journal scrapbook.
How about a day-to-day account of your journey? You can write down everything that happens on your trip by starting a diary that can also double as a scrapbook. You can even make your collection of pictures more interesting by including a small anecdote about it. You can also make your diary more visually appealing by thinking of creative ways to display small souvenir items in your scrapbook such as leftover coins and paper bills, magnets, keychains, and even flowers and stones.
Start a blog.
Blogging is a great option if you are tech-savvy and wants to make your travel journal available online. By using this modern method of keeping a diary, you can reach more audiences and may even get to make new friends. As online storage is often secure, limitless, and long-lasting, it is also a way to ensure that you will not lose or damage your travel stories.
Provide a review or guide.
You can make your travel experience more meaningful by using it as a way to help other travelers who want first-hand information about a destination or establishment. Do it by sharing your honest reviews and recommendations to future travelers on websites such as TripAdvisor and GoogleMyBusiness. Thus, while writing about your travel escapades, you will also provide valuable advice to others and help businesses improve their services.
Learn to cook a local dish.
One way to get to know the culture and history of a place is by trying the local and unique dishes in the place you are visiting. If you happen to like a particular dish while on vacation, you can bond with the locals by asking them how to prepare it. Upon going home, you can share your unique culinary experience by trying to make the recipe by yourself. The scent and flavor of the dish will likely take you back to your vacation spot.
Make a video.
Pictures are great but you can always take it to the next level by shifting your camera into video mode. Aside from taking candid shots, you can seal the moment by recording videos while on a trip. You can even write a short script and turn it into a mini-movie. Your travel clips will be a cool thing to watch whenever you want to revisit the place you went to.
Traveling is a great way to create happy memories. With a bit of effort to document and preserve your experiences, you can further savor and make these great moments linger.
