#memories

Distant, fond, scary and good -  memories are what we take with us, hold dear and remind us of the excitement and adventures of our past.  

During our Jamboree in Prague we had a hackathon where Ionut looked at Instagram tags and what they tell us. The above images shows us where most pictures are tagged with #memories around the world. 

Memories of being on two continents in one day, that first roller coaster ride, the sun rising over the Mediterannean and setting in LA.  These are the moments we photograph, we cherish, we take with us to remind us of our journey.  They are memorialized in our photo albums and scrapbooks to flip through for years to come, to share with our loved ones, to remind us of where we've been and where we are going.  

In the words of Oscar Wilde, "'Memory is the diary we all carry about with us".  Traveling is about making memories so to all the Tripsers out there, keep on traveling and keep on making memories.
