When I'm traveling, I try to make an effort to record my memories (pictures, souvenirs, video, etc.), but my favorite of all ways to do so is by keeping a travel journal (to have my adventures in writing). I find travel journals to be one of the most authentic ways to capture one's journeys, as it does not only captures a single memory, but an entire trip and can include the thoughts and emotions that go along with traveling. Journals allow me to live within the moment of my vacations because it forces to step away from the lens of a camera and helps me live in the present moments, to later capture within the pages of my journals.
Below are a few examples of pages taken from my very own journals capturing past trips dating from 2011 to 2015.
