Capture the Memories, leave the souvenirs
Hunting for souvenirs can be a fun part of travel, but gather too many and you are faced with creating lots of space once you get home. If your summer involves exploring new places, look for ways to capture the memories without bringing home a suitcase full of trinkets.
A few ideas to get you started: Keep a travel journal where you can jot a few highlights from each day or a note about each place you visit. Create a Top Ten List of your favorites memories from the trip. Take a moment to snap a pic that captures one or two events each day & create a digital slideshow to enjoy. Or find a trinket that can be put to good use when you get home- something to wear or use. Happy traveling!
