No more photo albums to record your adventures. Today it’s all electronic, a photo and tweet travel blog to record of your journey. If you’re a reader, you can take some travel points from famous wanderers.

Think of Charles Darwin, Mark Twain, Samuel Pepys, Alexis de Tocqueville and Saint Paul. Your travel story may not become famous literature, but consider benefits you'll get by adding interesting notes to it every day: 1. By writing in a daily online blog, that one source lets family and friends all follow your itinerary. It saves time from having to write basically the same information to many individuals.

2. Spice up your blog by sharing creative photos and video you've shot during your daily adventures. Don't just point the lens at the sights. Shoot selfies and have others record scenic views of you at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, London Bridge, the Eiffel Tower and other famous spots.

3. When in foreign countries, posting just one daily blog is much more economical than paying high rates and spending time to contact people at home with phone calls.

4. Get advice from those who’ve been there, done that. Your blog invites quick responses from the home folks when you ask about restaurants, hotels, tourist spots and other features of your journey.

5. Could it be a money-making effort? If you create your blog with skill and originality, you may be able to sell your interesting story and/or graphics to online or print media.

If you create a daily electronic travel blog, you may never become as famous as Mark Twain. However, the benefits of doing it can be fun, while keeping the folks at home informed of your wanderings.
