Tip #38 - Blog about Your Travels!
If you're an Internet-savvy traveler, consider creating a travel blog so that your family and friends can enjoy your trip right along with you. There are lots of free websites that can get you started very easily and it's up to you how frequently you post. It's a great way to stay connected while you're away and loved ones will feel like they're practically right there with you. Plus, this eliminates the need to re-tell the same stories over and over again once you're back. Just be sure that you'll have Internet access wherever you'll be so that you can keep your blog updated. And have fun with it: add photos and let everyone on the trip create posts.
