Exciting Strategies to Document Your Getaway
When you’ve taken the time off of work, packed your bags, and the kids are ready to go, there’s nothing better than heading out for a family adventure. Being all together as a family, spotting the sites, having time to talk, visit, and laugh, and taking a few good days to pay attention to the people you’re with is a blessing that doesn’t come around often enough.
In reality, you’re making memories that will last a lifetime, and it’s great to document these experiences for remembering later. While people do this in different ways, the important thing is finding something that works for you.
Take time to write. There’s something about writing down some thoughts, even a few words, to enunciate an experience and capstone a day. Recording and reflecting help synthesize emotions and feelings, and it’s also an appropriate time to share highlights, too. Maybe someone said a one liner that had everyone in stitches, or shared something heavily personal with the group. These are the examples you want to jot down. What if you’re not one to write things down? That’s okay. Use your smart phone to create audio recordings. All you’ve got to do is press the record button and talk. They’re easy to save, and a cinch to share and distribute, too.
Take videos. That interface makes it easy to record a few thoughts every day, and it’s easy to attach a photo with your words to provide an umbrella approach at capturing the whole experience.
Take pictures. There’s that saying that a picture is worth a thousand words, and in some ways, its right. Photos will jog your memory of your travels, and you’ll rejoice to have them.
Carry something special home. There are always a bunch of random trinkets and usual souvenirs that people buy. What about purchasing something that holds personal meaning to you, something that actually takes you to a specific memory or something you don’t want to forget? For instance, maybe you had a life-changing conversation on the beach with someone you love, something that brought a solution to your life or helped you relinquish some long-held pain. You might collect a bunch of seashells for your mantle from that place. They’ll remind you of what took place in that moment, long after you’ve returned and life has resumed.
State your sentiments through an art form. Maybe you aren’t one to get pictures, write things down, or bring things home. You might be someone who wants to articulate your experience by writing a song with the guitar, painting a picture, writing a poem, or creating something that represents an idea.
