It doesn’t matter where we go or how far we travel to get there, the one thing we all want to do is remember the journey we took, the places we visited and the food we ate.
For many of us that is simply sharing a photo on social media, while some people like to take a notebook and write about the places they visit.
Technology tends to be the go-to when it comes to documenting travel and the way we share things with family and friends.
Many of us will use social media apps and travel apps such as Journi and Evernote are becoming a more popular way to document your travels. They allow you to store photos and make notes as you go and are a great way to preserve your memories.
I have never used any of these apps as I prefer the good old-fashioned notepad to make brief notes of this that happen.
Documenting your travels is all down to personal preference at the end of the day and what works for one doesn’t always work for the other.
My personal preference will always be the camera, as the old saying goes ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’.
Although a quick selfie isn’t always an option when travelling to remote places, I love to keep everyone updated as I journey through those remote places.
My go-to kit will always be the GoPro, it is a must-action camera with 4k plus quality and comes with all the little extras, like audio recording devices. The latest ones are rode wireless microphones - I haven’t quite figured out how to use them yet, but it’s the plan for my next adventure.
I also love using the drone, it brings an entirely different aspect to filming and photography. It immerses people who have no knowledge of the area they are in, as well as 360-degree camera footage.
I plan to add the 360-degree video camera to my documenting arsenal, which will allow me to involve and immerse my audience a little bit more.
So, watch this space if you want to get the full rundown of my next expedition.
And while we are on the subject - September is the month to keep an eye on, as I will be doing a lot of promotional work.
One of which will be a filmed training session somewhere in the hills and rivers of the UK in preparation for my upcoming expedition.
