(Newswire.net — April 20, 2017) — If there’s one travel mistake you should avoid at all cost, it should be the failure to document your travel memories. You want to look back and relish all those moments as though they’re just happening.
Memories kept could linger for as long as you want. But that’s only if you keep them properly. Here are 5 easy ways to keep your travel memories intact and stay happy for life.
Keep a notepad
Diary booklets are great but they’re no more in vogue when it comes to recording travel memories. This is because there are faster and more effective ways to do that. A good example is the notepad on your smartphone which is a great tool for recording events.
With your notepad, you can take short notes on the go. And that’s a smart way to remember vital information which could otherwise be lost if committed to memory. Also, you can easily copy the notes from your phone and save them in a document anytime.
One interesting thing about blogging is that it allows you to keep memories. Not only this, you can share your memories with your friends, families, and blog audience. You don’t have to be a professional blogger to do this.
But if you’re a travel blogger, you’re not keeping the memories for the fun of it. You want to maximize every benefit attached to keeping such information. For example, Antoine Tardif was able to share the war museum experience on a North Korea travel blog. He found out a new twist to the history he had learnt from America and wanted the world to also know about it.
Record a video
No technology captures an event better than videos. Therefore, a digital camera and a smartphone with a high resolution camera are indispensable tools. One of the obvious advantages of video recording is that it captures both image and voice; so there are no lost feelings.
It’s noteworthy that creating short videos is the new trend on social media. Since the social media is a great place to share your special experiences, uploading the short clips with your connections wouldn’t be a bad idea. With this, you can increase your following on social media and also inspire many others to travel.
Create a picture gallery
Do you still keep photo albums? Well, photo albums are great but there are more interesting ways to create fun memories with your pictures. Creating a picture gallery is one of such ways.
Sticky pictures are great because they can bring back the memories any time you walk through the house. You could also fix some on your workplace cubicle. Another way to keep your picture memories is through the use of cloud apps. These apps make it possible to retrieve the pictures anytime you’re online.
Make a collection
Most of us cherish souvenirs not for their monetary values but because they often remind us of some notable events. Similar to souvenirs are collections we gather by ourselves.
For example, sea shells and corals can be used for making home decorations. So it’s not just about the memories, it also has to do with home improvement.
