What can I do to make traveling more fun?

Travel Journal

Keep a journal of your travels. You will sharpen your awareness of your surroundings and your writing skills. Reading your journal will bring back vivid memories of your vacation, which can often be used in essay assignments or just to help you relive that special time.

What can I do to help my writing skills?

Keep a Journal

Keep a journal. Record more than a list of times and places. Use your senses to describe what you see and do. When you are given a writing assignment and have writer's block, your journal can often remove the block. You may be able to rework a journal entry to fit the assignment.

Travel Games

Many travel hours can be spent playing group games, which require no paper. In the “I'm going on a trip and I'm taking…..” game the first person names an item beginning with A. The second person repeats the “I'm going on a trip and I'm taking” listing the A item and adding an item beginning with the letter B. Eventually, you will make it through the whole alphabet and have 26 items in the “suitcase.” This game taxes your brain and leads to lots of laughter.

Where Am I?--Get a Map.

Get a map to follow your progress on the trip. It is fun to track your path along the highways and the map gives you a better idea of where you are and when you will reach your destination. You might even locate an interesting place to take your next rest stop. Information centers are great places to get new maps and other literature about the areas you plan to visit. The brochures you find make nifty additions to your travel scrapbook.
