what to write about travel

The dreaded small talk conversation.
You offer a smile.
And a hello.
And then maybe a comment about the heavy traffic.
But you leave feeling unfulfilled and wondering why you’ve just had a relatively meaningless conversation-if you can call it that- with someone.
It may be someone you know or an elevator companion or the clerk.
You wonder if they care about the answer.
You wonder if you care.

You finally sit down to pen a note to a friend, but all you can think about is being stuck in the airport for that layover.

You know she‘d love to hear from you and she probably doesn’t even care if you discuss all the jet lag and last minute gate changes.

It’s okay to talk about travel.
What was the thing you missed about home that surprised you?
What did you splurge on to prepare?
What was the funniest interaction you had with the locals?
What was the most prominent color you saw?
What’s the atmosphere of the best restaurant you stopped at?
Was there something you tried that you wouldn’t have done at home?

All of a sudden you have a much more intriguing story to share.
Your friend feels like she’s sharing the moment with you.
Your typical trip isn’t quite so boring and is post card worthy.

When you’re wondering what to write, take something  – like travel – and make it meaningful and memorable.
