How to Create Great Memories On Your Next Vacation

Are you ready to go on your next vacation? Your vacation is a special time and it is only natural that you will want to capture memories of the event.

Sometimes it can be difficult to know exactly how you should go about capturing those memories. However, with just a few tips you can create memories that you will never forget. 

Here’s a look at how you can go about doing this.

Start a Blog

If you’re going to be in one location for a few weeks, a month, or more, it’s a good idea to start a blog where your friends and family can all go to see your memories. You can make this blog private if you choose. This is a great alternative to social media.

It’s often not a good idea to post on social media about your vacation even though it is popularly done. It’s a security risk as it makes everyone know that you are not at home.

You never knew who is watching and it could be an opportunity for unscrupulous people to invade your property. A blog where you can keep your memories long-term and only invite those who you wish to participate keeps things safe.

Send Postcards

Another timeless way to make great memories is to find postcards of special landmarks in the area. You can collect these postcards in a scrapbook or you can send them to whomever you like.

This way you don’t have to buy official postcards. You can make your own postcards by taking pictures of the places you visit and then using templates online to print them out.

There are even printing services that will let you add your photos and post the cards to recipients for you.

Keep a Journal

Keeping a journal is also a great way for you to keep your memories of your holiday intact. You do not have to be the only one who contributes to the travel diary. You can have others we are traveling with add to it as well.

Making entries every day is a great way to have something to look back on. Everyone will have a different perspective on something you have seen that day or an activity you have done. 

Recording their feelings and emotions is a great way for everyone to look back especially a few months or even a few years from your vacation.

You can try art journaling as well. Everyone can draw their favorite scenes of what happened at a particular location they have visited.

All the pictures can then be placed in a scrapbook. It is important to remember that these drawings do not have to be perfect. 

No one should be self-conscious about what they are putting in the journal. It’s just an exercise to let people express what they loved about your day’s events.

Take Great Pictures

You probably already know that you should take pictures whatever you can. However, an alternative to just taking pictures with your cell phone is to rent a professional camera and take pictures with that instead.

Not only will your pictures be of higher quality but it’s a great way to practice photography as well. This can be a lot of fun. You can designate somebody to be the official photographer of the day if you want to.

You can go beyond pictures as well. Consider buying a drone to take with you as well. A drone can give you panoramic views of the location that you are visiting.

If you are visiting tropical locations or anywhere exotic, it is a great idea to capture the moment. You never know if you’ll ever be able to visit the location again. Having videos like this can help you make great memories that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Just make sure that you get a top-of-the-line drone such as the DJI Mini 3 Pro, this will ensure that you get the best video quality possible.

Once you have finished capturing your videos, it’s a good idea to place them somewhere where everyone can go and take a look at them. Consider starting a YouTube channel and placing the video there. 

If you take vacations regularly you can add videos to this channel that you have created with your drone whenever you want. You can also add other videos of your vacation as well. This is a great place to store your memories.

Go On Guided Tours 

Why plan everything out by yourself? Take as many guided tours of your destination as you possibly can. If there are food tours available go on them, if cycling or boat tours are also given then sign up for those as well. 

The point is that you should sign up for as many activities as possible where you don’t have to think about what you will do or where you will go.

Let someone else take on that job while you just sit back and relax and enjoy your vacation. Depending on the tour you are on you will have ample time to make wonderful memories, take as many pictures as you want, and make postcards, diaries, and blog posts.

Go to Festivals

Festivals are a great way to make memories when you are on vacation. However, you need to make sure that you book your tickets ahead of these festivals.

Popular music festivals tend to be extremely oversubscribed and you will need to make sure that you make plans well ahead. If you don’t do this you will be disappointed because you may not get to attend the festival of your choice.

When you look for music festivals you can tape some of the performances, many people do this and place it on YouTube.

It will entertain those who are not at the festival and it will create a place where you can go to see these memories.

Use Social Media 

Social media is a great place to create memories for your vacation. You can share what is happening in real-time and bring your friends and family who couldn’t make it with you on your adventure. 

When posting on social media about your vacation, it’s always important to limit the number of people who can see it. On sites such as Instagram, you can create close friend groups to share your content with. 

As mentioned before you may face security issues if you let people know that you are not home. The great thing about social media is that it is a completely free way for you to keep your posts live for a very long time.

Make Great Memories

Making great memories on your next vacation does not have to be all that difficult. You just have to plan and make sure that you take the time to find the activities that will allow you to create these memories. Be sure to document everything as much as you possibly can. The point of making great memories is that you will be able to look back on them in the future and remember the great times you had.

Do not be afraid to go outside the box and think beyond social media. However, social media is still a great way for you to share your memories even if you have to be conscious of your security while doing so. The bottom line is that you should try to use every available avenue to make lasting memories.
