It could be really frustrating to want to hold to all your treasured memories and seeing them slip with time. So instead of trying to cram it all in your brain or penning enormously long essays in your dairies, try making a memory list.

It could be anything that you found interesting, exciting, out of the ordinary, and captivating. You could mention the touch of the breeze, the taste of new foods, the cars you saw while crossing the roads of a distant land, and anything else that you would want to remember for years to come.

You could add pictures to animate the list and have something to look back at.

A Souvenir Collection

Bringing back souvenirs from a trip is something no one can avoid. You could purchase things from the local artistry shops of the places you visited or simply collect things that you find genuinely dazzling. It need not be something that you particularly bought, but more like things that you could see wanting to have even after a long time.

If you visit a beach, bring back some shells or beach rocks, if you visit a zoo, ask for a few feathers, if you visit a restaurant, try bringing the exotic recipes to home with you!

A Scrapbook

If you want all your travel memories like pictures, receipts, and experiences at a single place, make a travel scrapbook!

Visiting back to look at memories can be a lot of fun. Do make use of these tips and travel back in time whenever you feel like it!
