Your far flung travels mean nothing if no one else ever knows about them! Whether you are travelling to a beautiful Caribbean island for a family vacation, or you are taking a business trip to Italy and venturing abroad for the first time ever, you will want to document your experience. Here are a variety of ways you can show the people back home that you are having a fantastic trip while they are stuck at work:
· Start a blog. If you are going to be travelling for a long period of time, at least a month or longer, consider starting a blog using a platform such as Tumblr, Wordpress or Blogger. This method is useful for travellers who enjoy writing and is a good way of documenting your trip and communicating with friends and family back home.
· Journal. Write interesting things down as they happen; kind of like blogging the old fashioned way! Keeping a journal is a quick, low tech way to document your vacation and will give you something useful to do in what would otherwise be wasted time.
· Create photo albums online. Use a dedicated photo site such as Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket or even Facebook to upload your digital photos. These days, you can even upload directly from your Smartphone! Share these albums with family and friends over the internet and never worry about losing undeveloped film again.
· Create a scrapbook. A scrapbook is a combination of blogging, journaling and photo album creation. Save newspapers, bus tickets, restaurant menus, anything and everything, and combine it all in a beautiful scrapbook that you will cherish for years to come.
Most importantly, don’t forget to leave your car in the care of Qwik Park during your trip out of Detroit Metro Airport.
