Slow Mindful Travel: 5 ideas on how to record your travel memories slow living explore simply

Journal
Take a journal with you to write down your experiences. Once you are home, you can then use your notes to produce a blog post or social media updates, rather than on the spot!

Polaroid Photos
There’s nothing better than taking photos in the moment and to remind you to appreciate what you see there and then, without the need to edit a photo with filters.

Art
Take a few art supplies and spend time to mindfully put your sights, sounds, taste and experiences on paper visually.

Sound
For many of us it is the distinctive sounds of places that we want to scoop up in a bottle or snap a photo of, which obviously we can’t. However, what you can do is record a few snippets of bite-sized sounds from your adventures!

Touch
Instead of searching for exquisitely embroidered textiles, why not collect various fabrics from your travels and collate to create a stunning throw or blanket? The different designs, detailing and craftsmanship from the places and people you met will be a wonderful keepsake!
