Great travelers are committed to lifelong learning. For me, the best souvenirs are the lessons and interesting facts that I learn while traveling. That’s why I always carry a small notebook and pen while I’m on the road. I keep it tucked just inside my camera bag or purse.
It’s a great way to capture the facts that I want to remember and share – especially those that I might want to use to caption photos. Often I’ll jot down the photo’s number from my digital camera and make a note beside it. It’s also a good place to record topics I want to research more when I get home.
I love going through my old notebooks. They provide great memories of the many trips I’ve enjoyed.
