How Will You Remember Your Travels?

Prepare for the busiest trip of your life! As you travel around New Zealand, people will ask you what you have done on your travels and when? You’ve done so much! How are you meant to remember all that?! That, right there, is why documenting your trip in New Zealand is a great idea. Not only will feel more organised, but you can make something out of your memories. So with that in mind, we put together this list of ways to document your travels.

It can be pretty fun when you take a look at the different ways you can document your travels. Here are a few to inspire you…

1. Send Postcards to Your Future Self

Write yourself a postcard in each noteworthy place as you travel around New Zealand, then send them to your home address. Months later, you’ll get to read them! A bit like time-travel, right?©

2. Scrapbook

Scrapbooking! Some people get really excited about scrapbooking. Create pretty pages and don’t let a single activity or travel ticket go to waste!

3. Foot Selfie

This is perfect if you, like most of us, are travelling on your own. It can be hard to get a flattering face selfie, so stick to the feet.©

4. Travel Journal

It’s a classic! Many backpackers are still sticking to this foolproof method of using the written word to document their travels. Find yourself a killer travel journal in our 15 Best Presents for Travellers.

5. Travel Blog

Get with the times! Anyone who is anyone is keeping a travel blog. Well, it is easier said than done in New Zealand where the WiFi connection tends to be abysmal. On the other hand, at least you cannot “misplace”your blog with photos and memories, so you are storing them somewhere safe.
