A trip shouldn’t end when you return home.
A friend of ours once said “I spent $100,000 on overseas travel and I don’t remember $80,000 of it!”
It is for this reason that I began a journal on our first caravanning trip and have continued to do so. That journal becomes a private blog as we travel for family and friends to know where we are. The photos become a DVD when we get home, not for boring our friends to death but to cheer us up on a cold night.
Random snippets from these blogs end up here on Itchingforhitching.com to be shared with fellow bloggers and armchair travellers.
Another angle is the online ordered coffee table style of books but I find that I can never reduce my photos enough to produce a reasonably priced book. When the resulting book for a three or four month trip costs more than the trip itself then you’ve got to ask yourself “Is it worth it?”
Whichever method that you choose, for heavens’ sake don’t trust those precious memories to your head. Back them up to a computer …or three.
