Life is not about the number of breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away, which is where traveling comes in.
Traveling has a way of stirring the soul and stirring smiles and making you feel alive. It is exactly like a story in that sense because life should be filled with adventures, not things, and you should have stories to tell, not things to show.
It should be a fairytale, but one that doesn’t end.
As such, we have rounded up some of the most ingenious ways in which wanderers and those enjoying a vagabond existence turn their travels into stories they can cherish forever.
We All Have A Book In Us
You know when someone is going on a holiday or embarking on some travels when they post a Facebook status that says, “looking for some gorgeous book recommendations?”
Packing a great book is a vacation necessity. We all love reading but the hecticness of life prevents us, until we go away. Then we devour our to-read list with a ravenous hunger. But what if you turned this on its head?
Stories are built on experiences and imagination, so why not put pen to paper on your next adventure. Find that quiet corner in a derelict beach bar and write.
We’re Going On A Bear Hunt
There was a story not long back about a little boy who lost his favorite teddy while he and his family were traveling. In total despair, his parents out a plea on Facebook, uploading a picture of the teddy in the hope someone may come across it.
But what happened instead was amazing.
People started jumping on to Adobe Spark and photoshopping the teddy into photos – Africa, China, New York, London – and instead of having to explain to the boy that his teddy was lost, they told him that his teddy was traveling the world, and here were the pictures to prove it.
It was amazing, and you could do something similar. Turn your family traveling photos turned into flipbooks, or something else “break the internet” worthy. Check Pinterest for unique ideas.
Become A Storytelling Blogger
Blogs have exploded onto the scene with writers sharing their thoughts on a variety of topics.
But why not become a blogger and document your adventures in a truly fairytale way?
Each week, write a blog; a story about your latest adventure, someone inspirational, a stranger’s incredible backstory, or even a series of short stories. So much greatness can spill from a simple as a blog.
Firstly, you will have somewhere to store your stories and memories, a place you can revisit in years to come, a place to reminisce and smile. That’s not all, though.
You could build a following. People will subscribe to your blog, read your latest pool of words, rave about your adventures and stories, and from there who knows.
These ideas are a good start to preserving your travel memories in a way that will cherish forever. You may never know who you’ll inspire to live their best life possible! Start today.
