The Top 5 Ways to Make Your Travel Memories Last
Now that we are more able to travel, it’s definitely the time to make the most of our newfound freedom. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s to enjoy life as much as possible when we are able to and to treasure the memories that we make. However, life can sometimes get in the way and the good times can become blurry. That’s why you should always find ways to keep your memories fresh so that you can look back fondly on all the places you have seen and experienced. Let’s take a look at the best ways to make your travel memories last…
Print Your Holiday Snaps
Remember the day you skydived in Australia? Or when you got up at the crack of dawn to see the sunrise at the Taj Mahal? Of course, you do, but these memories can sometimes seem out of reach, as they are so far removed from your everyday working life. That’s why having cool photo prints that you can see each day can give you a positive boost, as life definitely comes in waves. Having pictures of your fondest memories in view each day can be a reminder that you have great times ahead – the world is your oyster!
There are so many different apps these days, with a plethora of options when it comes to keeping your memories fresh in your mind. Timehop is a popular choice, as it highlights what you were posting on social media ‘on this day’ years ago. Photo storing apps, such as Google Photos, are also great options, as they pop up with memories from times gone by, and even create compilation reels to brighten up your day.
Meet Up With Travel Friends
Whilst it’s easy to say you’ll stay in touch with people you meet on your trips away, things can often change when you’re back on home soil. But it doesn’t have to! If you think you made genuine connections with people when you were on your travels, then reach out to see if you can meet up and reminisce. It’s a great way to build up your relationship whilst also remembering the amazing times you had together.
Write a Journal Whilst You’re Away
Whilst you can remember your biggest life events, it’s often difficult to pinpoint the details of how you were feeling, what was said, what you saw etc. That’s why keeping a journal is such a wonderful thing. You can look back in years to come – you’re sure to read it and think ‘oh yes, I remember that!’ about instances that may have become lost in the depths of your mind. Journals immortalise the thoughts and feelings you had at the time, that you might have otherwise forgotten.
Get Mementoes Wherever You Go
Whether it’s fridge magnets, a pack of cards, keyrings, or items of clothing, by picking up a memento whenever you go to a new country, you’re getting yourself a little reminder of your travels, that can last you a lifetime.
So, there you have it! Remember the good times and look forward to the even better times ahead. By strengthening your travel memories you can truly appreciate the fantastic things you’ve done over the years.
