Grab a map, record your memories – Souvenir tip

A great idea for remembering a special trip is to get a local map in the local language. Maps can range in detail from neighborhood streets to an overview of the region. Find a special interest map, like wine regions throughout France or boutiques along Magazine Street in New Orleans.

Use your map to mark a favorite spots during your trip — or to plan your next day. Write down your experiences and attach it to your map for an instant travelogue. Maps fold up small and are easy to pack on the trip home.

Bonus: you can share your map with friends when you get home, when they decide to go on a similar trip.
