I always wish I kept better journals of all my travels. A detailed recollection of all the wonderful things I saw, the amazing foods I ate and of all these incredible experiences I’ve had. But for me the reality of it comes down to the fact that after two years of living abroad, exploring Europe… I returned home with a barely written in journal.
Now don’t get me wrong, I always bring some sort of notebook and pen with me on whatever travels I embark on. I always have every intention on writing, I make all these plans for the detailed worn in journal I hope to return home with. I so desperately want to capture every moment, every feeling, every experience but then I just get so caught up in living in the moment and fall behind on my writing.
Then I tell myself, it’s necessary to write things down in order… so I’ll go back and fill in the days after I settle down from my trip… which obviously never quite seems to happen.
So how do you do it? How do you live in the moment and enjoy the trip while at the same time capturing and recording the memories of it?
