In the past documenting a memory or a journey was not very easy as it involved having to purchase film roll, have it developed and writing down your memories. Today however everything you need to document your vacations are all in one device – your phone. Starting your own blog before you head off on a long vacation is a great way to not only preserve the memories of your vacation but to document it and give your friends, family and even complete strangers contemplating going on a trip to the same location an insight in to your journey.
Points to document
When reading through a travel blog, there are certain things that every reader looks for. They will look at what the accommodation features and the prices of accommodation in the area are. They will want to know what the best cafes in Wollongong and bars at the location are and what kind of menus they serve and of course they will want to know about the sights in the area worth seeing are. You may not have the time to sit ad write about each day of your vacation while you are on vacation but make sure you take pictures and videos of every moment of your trip and take down notes about any memorable moments or points about your trip.
When it comes to your accommodation, it is not simply the price that is important information. It is service and value for money. Most travellers will be willing to spend a little bit more in order to have a luxurious stay and experience great service and great food. Make note of all the instances where you received good service at each of the places you stayed at, as your review could help these places get more business and it is the least you could do to show appreciation for the great service they offered you. Furthermore make note of the best cafes in the area that offer the best of local cuisine and give you a glimpse in to the local culture. Most tourists and travel enthusiasts will be very interested in where to eat ad where to drink in the area and therefore, it would also be noteworthy to make note of any local bars and pubs as well.
Make sure that your travel blog contains numerous videos and pictures of your experience. Ideally you will want to have at least sixty percent of your content in pictures and videos with forty percent in writing as most travel enthusiasts may not spend long hours reading.
