Travel – words matter

Posted By Rachel B On June 13, 2008 @ 9:00 am In Travel | 5 Comments

I usually rely on memory and photos to capture my vacation experience, but I’ve come to realize that these aren’t quite enough. I want the detail, like a day’s agenda, a meal, or a conversation – the moments that make the vacation come alive. So this spring in Mexico, I decided to keep a journal. Every night I jotted down a couple of lines about the day’s activities, and a couple of thoughts about the day. That’s it. 5 minutes or less.

This small effort proved invaluable when I put my Mexico photo book together, because I could just refer back to my journal for the forgotten fine points. It saved so much time, and helped me add photo book captions that were more detailed. For a great example on journaling, check out “True Treasures [1]” ‘by ‘JoniG7’.
