Why do you travel? Is it only about seeing new places, or do you cherish the unique moments with friends and family as much as I do?
I used to find it challenging to capture those moments forever. And unless you employ an expert paper writer, it’s difficult to reproduce the emotions and memories.
If you tried that too, you went about it all wrong. You can experience last year’s exotic trip as if it’s taking place right now. When I miss certain individuals in my life, or I long for my next holiday excursion, these tips help me experience it over and over.
The moment you write about something, it gets cemented in your memory. But a long essay is boring and draining.
Why not write a review? Leaving remarks, ratings and comments on travel websites help you relive moments. As a bonus, you help others get the most out of their holidays too.
One of my challenges is to bring my travels into my everyday life. It’s my favorite hobby, but how can I spark the thoughts of relaxation and memories with friends, when I’m sitting in an office?
My office wall is mostly taken up by a huge scratch map. It’s a map of the world covered with a thin layer of copper. The countries I’ve visited have been scratched open.
This image is enough to bring a smile to my face whenever I look up from my desk.
My second challenge was making images available at any time.
Selfies, group photographs, and videos are excellent tools to remember people and experiences by. A live video broadcast even captures emotions in real time.
Because I made my Smartphone my default capturing device, I can instantly upload it to my Facebook and other social media platforms. Instead of gigs of data stored on my hard drive at home, my memories travel with me at all times.
Where do you think I get my home’s décor? Since traveling is my number one passion, my decorating theme must center on it. And why not use my memories as inspiration?
In every room you’ll find ordinary décor made unique by focusing on travel:
- A lampshade made of photographs
- A self-made calendar showing where you traveled on specific dates the previous year
- Containers, such as jars, filled with small items picked up around the globe such as ticket stubs
- Magnets with photographs
Turn your home into the ultimate travel time capsule.
This is one of my favorite ways of capturing a moment. Despite technology, email, and Skype, postcards are still in fashion. I purchase one in each city I visit and send it to myself. The message usually contains wonderful snippets of news after an exciting day.
I use them as bookmarks, decoration and hide a few in my diary. When I discover them again, they brighten my days.
