Keep the Memories Alive: Re-living Your Best Rio Moments

If you’re anything like me, you think a vacation is never long enough. But I’ve learned to cope with this by developing some ways to combat the post-holiday blues:

Capture memories in a digital scrapbook 

Vacation experiences can’t all be captured in photos. Our memories include foods we’ve tasted, items we’ve bought, and music and stories we’ve heard along the way. Save snippets of your memories as notes in a notebook called “Rio:Scrapbook”. Use it as a visual travel memoir and  conversation piece to tell friends and family about your trip.

What you can save to your digital vacation scrapbook:

  • Scan travel brochures, lunch receipts, and business cards.
  • Save photos from a tour of Corcovado Mountain and your ‘selfie’ in front of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue.

Tell a story and save the audio recording next to  your photos.

Bring the highlights of your Rio vacation home with you 

Introduce some new foods into your weekly meal plans. Browse for a recipe for that Brazilian cocktail you’d like to try making. Find a local shop that sells ingredients more difficult to find at home. Create a new “Sounds of Brazil” playlist of music you can listen to the next time you attempt to bake a batch of Pão de Queijo.

Start planning your next adventure 

Create an Evernote notebook called “Dream Vacations” to keep travel articles, a list of destinations others have recommended, and scanned travel pamphlets to inspire your for future trips.
