There's nothing quite like looking at old videos and photos of past holidays and reminiscing about the lovely time that you had. Today we have the privilege of living in a digital world that's constantly changing so the innovative ways to document a holiday are endless. From creating fun one second videos to travel apps to customising objects check out our top ways to document a holiday.
Create your own postcards
Avoid sending out generic postcards to friends and family and create your own. Personalised postcards are a fun and meaningful way of documenting a holiday and sharing it with loved ones. There are many online free postcard makers so there's a range of different platforms to choose from.
Make one second videos
One second videos are on the rise. The popular app known as "1 Second Everyday: Video Diary" documents just a second of an event in your life. This particular app was created to make life stories and document memories by taking just a snippet of a day in your life. Despite it being just one second, these small videos all compile together to make an awesome documentation, making it ideal for documenting long stay holidays or a series of holidays over the year. So head to China and document yourself posing in front of The Great Wall, trying real authentic Chinese food for the first time or strolling through the amazing Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. This app ensures that you wouldn't forget life's moments so sit back, relax, watch and remember parts of your holiday.

Vlogging is a fun and interactive way of documenting your holiday. Whether you decide to vlog live or film and edit your content later it's a great way of keeping people back home updated with the ins and outs of your travelling adventures. Document your holiday in an innovative way by including some of the people that you've met whilst travelling, take part in a challenge or show yourself getting up to something fun and adventurous.
Create a memory jar
This is a very cheap and cheerful way of documenting your holiday. Empty an old jam jar or get one from an old antique store. Fill it with all of the tickets, receipts, change, notes and little memoires from your trip. If you're ever feeling nostalgic you can get it out and reminisce over the fun things that you got up to.
