When going on an exciting, travelling adventure, we want to be able to remember all those incredible experiences for the rest of our lives, and we want to be able to share them with those we love back home.
Therefore, it’s a good idea to look into different ways in which you can best document your travel adventures, so you can find the one that’s right for you before you catch your plane. We’ve come up with 5 of the best and most popular ways in which you can document those amazing memories to help you decide which one to go for.
1. A blog
Blogging is really popular nowadays, and it almost seems like everyone has one at the moment! They’re great as you can start one for free (or pretty cheaply if you want to personalise it a bit more) and can make them as private or as public as you like. They’re the ideal way for people back home to see what you’re up to, and if you are serious about your travel blog and want to build a professional blog you can even turn it into a business.
2. A scrapbook
Scrapbooks are a great vintage alternative to a blog, and they look really creative and make an amazing keepsake that you can treasure and look through forever. You can include things like postcards, receipts, photographs, travel tickets etc…basically anything that has been significant to you on your journeys!
3. Video blogs
If you spend a lot of time on the internet, you’ll have probably come across the term ‘vlogging’ before, which basically refers to the idea of ‘video blogging’. It’s where you post videos of yourself talking to your audience, rather than writing posts, and it’s becoming more and more popular. If it’s a new concept to you but something you think you might be interested in, there are loads of resources online for getting started as a vlogger.
4. Photo journals
If your camera is your ultimate accessory as you travel, you could turn this passion and hobby into a unique and exciting way of documenting your travel experiences. It’s an especially great option if you prefer to let your photos do the talking, rather than writing posts, for example, too. There are lots of different sites and options out there online that enables you to upload your photos onto a site/page to keep them all in one place, organised and sharable with your loved ones, too.
5. A diary
Diaries are of course the original and ultimate way to document your travel experiences, so we couldn’t leave it off the list, even if many feel it’s a bit outdated now! Grab your favourite notebook and pen and keep it on you at all times so that you can jot down all of those incredible experiences as they happen. This is a great way to keep your experiences personal if you wish, too.
