Good News: My brother and his wife invited me to go on a Road Trip with them next month! It will be a around 10 days trip through the center of Minas Gerais state. We have relatives there, so we will staying some days at an auntie´s house, others at my grandmother´s house (she passed away almost a year ago, but one of my aunts is living in her house while the heirs don´t deceide what to do with it) and we are maybe staying one or two nights in a hotel. Our plans are to see my relatives, go to historical cities (from the barroque period - our gold rush times) and go to a National Park.
The point is: The last time I traveled was on my early teens, so I´m a bit lost about preparations...
And, of course, when I come back I want to keep those memories in a scrapbooking album, probably a digital one. So, I have some questions to those who are more experienced than I with travelling and them putting trip albuns together. And the first is: do you bring a phisical travel journal with you? Or do you only write when you´re back? Are there prompts of things I can´t forget to take notes? Do you do travel diaries?
If you have hints on packing, they would be very appreciated too. I need to put stuff for 10 days in a medium bag and a medium backpack!
