The last week I travelled around in Africa, it was such an amazing, mind blowing experience. When I am traveling I always wish that I can hold on to certain moments forever, unfortunately I can't. But the next best thing is to try to gather as much items to remind you on fantastic moments, put them in a scrapbook and whenever you feel like it, relive the moment.
I always take literally everything, from maps to straws and from leaves to precious souvenirs. Next to that I always take my camera with me and try to keep a travel journal.
Here is my Africa collection (well at least a selection ;))
