After a journey abroad, we finally going back home. We’ve seen many beautiful places, ate unique local foods, and met many wonderful people on the roads. We feel rather tired but never been so happy, can’t wait to share the stories to our loved ones.
I want to share a little trick for you who want to share your travel stories: Be patient 🙂
The thing is, everybody always have stories to tell everyday, whether a day in office or a day hiking mountains in Chiang Mai. We have to understand, travelers nowadays face different audience than in the past: a time when a traveler got back home, all the people would gather around while the traveler share the stories about some strange distant lands. Now we have the internet, with a few clicks people would know what Chiang Mai looks like and suddenly the mysteriousness of our travel stories are gone.
My advice is to be patient, and share your stories one at a time. Of course there are some stories that you want to share right away, go ahead. But for the rest, just be patient. Don’t make them watch to your slideshow all night while you keep rambling on about your adventure. A little advice about pics though: Be creative and shot a unusual angles. For example, when in Eiffel Tower, don’t just take a pic of you with the Tower on the background. Instead, take it from under the Eiffel, and let your audience guess it 😀
What’s your tips on sharing travel stories? 🙂
