1. Create a memory jar.
Take a handful of beach sand, shells, dried flowers, ticket stubs, restaurant receipts, and other snippets from your trip. Store them in a clear mason jar and garnish with some ribbon or twine. You can add a label that tells about the contents, such as the date of travel and of course, the location.
2. Create a hashtag.
If traveling with multiple family members who are on social media create a unique trip hashtag. For example if your last name is Smith and you are going to Disney, your hashtag can be #SmithsVisitMickey2016. Have everyone who posts pictures use this hashtag so you can easily search for everyone’s photos on the various social media channels.
3. Create a scrapbook.
Buy an inexpensive photo album and use it to hold snippets of your trip. You can add pictures of course, but also add receipts to fun places, ticket stubs, leaves, dried flowers, travel brochures, and other items that help you document your trip.
4. Create a quotes card.
Find a post card from the location you are visiting. On the back of the card you can write down funny quotes as they happen. You can frame the card when done, and take it out when you need a good laugh and want to remember the trip.
5. Make a mini movie.
Take various pictures from your trip then add some text and music with a free movie making site such as Stupeflix. You can easily download your photos, arrange them as you wish, add music, text, and so much more to make a personalized movie of your trip.
6. Journal during the trip.
One great way to remember what you saw is through writing about it. Take a few minutes each night of your trip to journal. Mention where you went, what you did, who you went with, and any other memories you wish to document. You will love having this journal twenty years from now! You can find inexpensive journals at any bookshop or even your local dollar store.
7. Frame a map.
This is a fun way to create wall art while documenting your trip. Frame a map that has your travel route marked. You can even place stars on points of interest that you visited. You can buy a map and do this yourself, then just frame it and display it. On the back of the frame write the date of your travel and anything else you wish to remember.
As you can see, there are plenty of fun and creative ways to document your next trip. Give these 7 ways to perfectly document your vacation a try and see which one works for you.
