Some Via readers bring home exotic foods from their travels; others make scrapbooks or share photos online.
“I bring back interesting foods and create a meal for my friends,” says Lorrie Pleger of Albany, Ore.
“Collect ticket stubs, brochures, and pictures and make a scrapbook,” suggests Brooke Goff of Pleasant Hill, Calif.
“I text photos to friends and family every evening,” says Sarah Naidoo of Portland. “It brings them along with us.”
“I post pictures and postcards in my cube at work to talk about when people pop by,” says Kate McNee of El Cerrito, Calif.
“I draw my own pictures of travel sights on blank postcards to send to friends,” says Mark Rizzardi of Arcata, Calif.
“First I upload my photos to a website, then arrange them, add captions, and send out a link,” says Lananh Hoang of Reno.
