Travelling to new and exciting places makes us all want to find ways to capture our experiences for posterity, and many people decide to keep a travel diary while they’re on the road. But writing down your travels shouldn’t be just a blow-by-blow account of every step along your sightseeing journey. Join travel blogger and writer Amanda Kendle to learn about various ways to write down your travels so that you and your family and friends will enjoy reading them over and over. The course covers journaling,Instagram, scrapbooking both online and off, blogging, memoir, family diary writing and more.
