When you travel the world, it’s easy to get caught up in the moment. This means that quite often we neglect doing things that would benefit us later on—such as, for instance, documenting our travels. This may seem like something obvious to some, or something silly to others. But whichever camp you fall into, you may find that keeping a journal isn’t as easy to do as you think.
Forget About Instagram For a Second
If your part of the crowd who thinks documenting your travels is an obvious thing to do, bear in mind that we’re not talking about sharing a few posts on Instagram. We’re talking about keeping a physical journal where you can write what you’re going through day in and day out. Years from now, you’ll appreciate it more than ever.
Don’t Scoff At It Either
But if you’re one of the types who find this idea silly, don’t pretend that you don’t love poring over family photo albums from years past. You may think documenting your trip is stupid now, but you’ll be thanking yourself down the line if you put in the work right now. Your trip might be memorable, but it’ll last even longer if you do this.
